Andrew Yang warned Michael Bloomberg on Friday that his billions of dollars cannot buy him Democratic primary voters and also said he was happy to ask his supporters to help rival Marianne Williamson make the next debate.
& # 39; There are a number of things that money cannot buy, & # 39; Yang said after submitting his papers to cast his vote for the New Hampshire Democratic primary.
Yang, who is estimated to be worth $ 1 million for Forbes, said that Bloomberg, estimated to be worth $ 52 billion, cannot use his money to replace voter talks.
& # 39; I do think he will climb uphill during the race, partly because of New Hampshire, where people here in New Hampshire like to meet a candidate in person, look at their temperature, sometimes have their living room at home, and I don't believe that's possible with Mike, & Yang commented.

Speculation came from Bloomberg's camp on Thursday that the former mayor of New York would nevertheless apply for the Democratic presidential nomination, despite the fact that he would not be a contender in March.
& # 39; I welcome Mike to the race in the sense that he is a great American leader and has a lot to offer, but I think he did his job for him, in part because of the trial here in New Hampshire, & # 39 ; said Yang.
Bloomberg reportedly did not make a final decision, but is registering for the Democratic primary vote in some of the states that have upcoming submission deadlines. He has vowed to spend millions to beat Donald Trump next year, no matter what.
Yang also said he wanted to help Williamson make the next phase of the debate when Democrats meet later this month in Atlanta, Georgia.
& # 39; Asked Marianne. … I consider her a friend. I was happy to do it, ”he told reporters about his online support of his Democratic competition.
Earlier this week, Yang returned a Williamson tweet, asking supporters for donations for her campaign.
& # 39; I love Marianne – and I learned a lot from her. I hope America hears her message. She has a lot more to say, & he wrote on his retweet.
To conduct the November debate in Georgia, candidates must have 165,000 donors and earn 3 percent in four national or national polls, or earn 5 percent in two early state polls: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.
Williamson has not touched either the donor sign or the benchmark.
& # 39; One of the things that most people do not realize when they apply for presidency is that you spend a lot of time with the other candidates en route, & he said.
& # 39; Marianne asked. And I looked at it and said as a person, I understand the position it is in, and there are many people who support my campaign that I believe as Marianne, and so it seemed very natural. Almost collegiate to do because you have a relationship with other people who are applying for presidency, & he added.
He also acknowledged that Donald Trump will be a formidable opponent in the 2020 elections.
& # 39; Donald Trump has a number of benefits in the general election. He is the current president, so he has a bully pulpit. He will start with a huge financial benefit of hundreds of millions of dollars. He has a base that will support him through thick and thin. And so anyone who thinks it's going to be a weak opinion to beat him in the 2020 general election, doesn't feel what awaits him, & he said.
