Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang said Thursday that he thinks New York City should implement a universal basic income.

The entrepreneur was asked in his “exit interview” in The New York Times whether he thought enacting the primary idea from his campaign in the city would be a good idea.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think New York City should do a large-scale universal basic income. To me, that seems obvious,” he said.

Yang had based his presidential campaign on the idea of giving everyone a $1,000 monthly “universal basic income.”

After withdrawing from the race Tuesday night, Yang said he would endorse the Democrat candidate who would support the same universal basic income agenda.

In his interview with the New York Times, Yang was asked, “I know you said you will not rule out a run for mayor. Are you getting feelers?”

Yang responded, “Certainly people have been reaching out with various questions about the future, which is invigorating. We’re looking at different ways forward.”
