2020 presidential hopeful Andrew Yang (D) is urging his colleagues to stop talking about President Donald Trump as much, and instead, focus on policy issues.

Speaking to CNN’s Don Lemon on Tuesday night, Yang downplayed the chances that Trump would be removed from office, saying, “The odds are still very high that it will run aground in the Senate. And it is going to end up being a very polarizing issue for many Americans.”

Watch his comments below:

Yang attempted to pivot away from Trump and the new impeachment resolution House Democrats released on Tuesday.

“I’m on the record saying the more we focus on Donald Trump, even if it’s in the context of impeaching Donald Trump, it’s a lost opportunity for us to present a new positive vision that Americans can get excited about. Because when we’re talking about Donald Trump, we’re losing even when it’s talking about impeaching him.”

He added that he believes the issues being discussed in the impeachment probe are essentially baked into the cake when it comes to voters’ view of Trump.

“Well, what I’ve been saying is, look, the thousandth verification that Donald Trump is Donald Trump is not going to change a lot of minds out there in America.”

Yang said candidates should focus on sharing their solutions to the problems that help get Trump elected.

He added that he’s optimistic that Democrats would be able to peel off Trump supporters who are disaffected, citing a poll that found at least 10% of Trump voters said they would be open to supporting Yang in the general election.

First thing I this was a good interview. It really wasn’t a bashing Trump. The problem the left has is they think by attracting Trump that is the way they are going win.its only making the right to dig in and fight back. trump will run on what he has done for the people. jOBS.

I doubt very few minds will be changed because of this partisan witch hunt. If anything, MORE people will vote for Trump in 2020 because they’re sick of the DemocRATs (called Socialists/Communists now) have done N O T H I N G since assuming they were put in control to reverse the 2016 election results. In essence, they’re telling those of us who voted for Trump our votes do not count because we didn’t vote for their sickly, unfit, Alinsky radicalized Queen of Mass Corruption. LOCK HER UP (#44, too).
