He just straight up said I’m giving 1k a month to 10 people who support me. When did this become legal?
Presidential hopeful Andrew Yang promised he would give 10 American families a “freedom dividend” of $1,000 a month for a year — or $120,000 — during his opening statement at the Democratic debate on Thursday in Houston, Texas.
“When you donate money to a presidential campaign, what happens?” Yang asked. “Politicians spend the money on TV ads and consultants and you hope it works out.”
“It’s time to trust ourselves rather than our politicians,” Yang said. “That’s why I’m going to do something unprecedented tonight.”
“My campaign will now give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families — someone watching us at home right now,” he continued.
“If you believe you can solve your own problems better than any politician go to Yang 2020 dot com and tell us how $1,000 a month will help you do just that,” Yang said.
