The answer, says 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, is himself – “an Asian guy who’s good at math”.

Since the first Democratic primary debate, Yang has gained more Twitter followers than any other candidates.

“I’m Asian, so I know a lot of doctors,” he claimed during the nationally-televised Democratic presidential primary debate in Houston.

When stand-up comedian Shane Gillis came under fire for having mimicked Chinese accents and an instance of using a racial slur to refer to Yang, Yang advocated for forgiveness rather than punishment, which triggered a blowback from the Asian-American community.

Some view his vague statement as an attempt to refrain from potential controversy that could alienate him and his Chinese American supporters.
