Andrew Yang, the founder of the New York City-based nonprofit Venture for America – which connects recent college graduates with high-tech jobs – is running for 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination. The entrepreneur stopped by WNYC's The Brian Lehrer Show to discuss his presidential campaign and why it centers on the issue of a universal basic income.
