Biden isn’t happy about this!
Top Democrat and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang has just announced that he is leaving the Democratic Party and will be forming his own party.
Yang, who is in his mid-40’s, will be forming his new party the same day he is set to release his own book, “Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy,” on October 5th.
It is currently unknown what the name of his new party will be called, however Yang did mention the party will focus on universal basic income and progressive policies.
According to Politico, “the book’s publisher, Crown, did give some clues about the type of platform Yang may pursue. It writes that the book is an indictment of America’s ‘era of institutional failure’ and will introduce ‘us to the various ‘priests of the decline’ of America, including politicians whose incentives have become divorced from the people they supposedly serve,” the Politico report noted.
Liberals have expressed great anger towards Yang for leaving the Democrat Party and have even began to mock him on social media.
