BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Former 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang launched his New York City mayoral campaign — hoping to replace outgoing Bill de Blasio with an audacious pitch for a universal basic income as a headline policy.
Yang, 46, was born in Schenectady, New York, and his parents are immigrants from Taiwan. He moved to the Big Apple when he was 21. In the 2020 primary, he touted his background in tech startup and gained a passionate following from supporters who became known as the “Yang Gang.” Both blacks and Hispanics said they are taking offense to his supporters are using that title, because no one in the “so-called” Yang Gang has admitted that they have some illegal firearms. Members of the local Mafia families said they feel the same way.
