During an interview with CNN anchor Ana Cabrera, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang was asked if he believes it’s possible to connect with the traditionally Republican evangelical voters. This bloc of voters is reportedly unwavering in their support of Donald Trump even in the face of an impeachment probe.

“Yes, I do,” Yang said. “I talk to evangelical Christians around the country who are deeply concerned about the values that President Trump represents. And they’re concerned that their religion is being politicized, that people feel like, for whatever reason, one party has something of a monopoly on the Christian vote.”

The 44-year-old serial entrepreneur, whose campaign centers around a universal basic income (UBI), said that there are “many communities of faith” that “embrace” the vision of his campaign, which he describes as a “trickle-up economy that values every single person.”

Yang noted his meeting with Martin Luther King Jr.’s son, Martin Luther King III, after the last debate in Atlanta. According to Yang, King III said that the campaign’s vision aligns with his father’s vision he was fighting for when he was assassinated in 1968.
