Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang on Thursday blamed fellow Democrats for being "obsessed over impeachment," warning they are ignoring the economic forces that led to President Donald Trump's 2016 election.

During the sixth Democratic presidential candidates debate sponsored by PBS NewsHour and Politico, Yang warned a focus on impeachment would be a political loser in 2020, adding the party has to focus on how to improve the lives of working class people who lost jobs to automation.

"What we have to do is we have to stop being obsessed over impeachment — which unfortunately strikes many Americans like a ballgame where you know what the score is going to be — and start actually digging in and solving the problems that got Donald Trump elected in the first place," he said.

Yang said Congress' approval is at 17% and "Americans don't trust the media networks to tell them the truth."

"The media didn't do us any favors by missing why Trump became president in the first place . . . you'd think he's president due to some combination of Russia, racism, Facebook, Hillary Clinton, and emails all mixed together," he said.

"But Americans know different," he continued. "We blasted away 4 million manufacturing jobs primarily based in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Missouri."

"The more we act like Trump is the cause of all our problems, the more Americans lose trust that we can address their concerns," he declared.
