Andrew Yang, entrepreneur and presidential candidate, joined Boston Public Radio on Tuesday to make his case as the best candidate to defeat President Donald Trump as voters take to the polls in the New Hampshire primary.

"Donald Trump's solutions were to build the wall, turn the clocks back and bring the old jobs back, and none of that works," Yang said. "The right solutions are to accelerate our economy and society to revolve around how we are doing rather than serving somebody's bottom line.

"We're in the midst of the most extreme winner-take-all economy in the history of the world right now, and it's going to get more extreme, not less extreme. ... Americans are getting stretched out in ways that were not happening in previous generations and many of them don't see a path forward," he added. "This is why Democrats need to stop acting like Donald Trump is the source of all our problems. He's a symptom of a disease that has been building up in our communities for years."

Central to Yang's campaign is his advocacy for a universal basic income of $1,000 a month for Americans.

"After we do this, everyone will be stronger, healthier, mentally healthier, less stressed out, and more able to do the kind of work they want to do. And it'd also recognize the kind of work that my wife does every day: taking care of our two boys, one of whom is autistic," Yang said. "Right now, stay-at-home parents, caregivers, volunteers, artists, local journalists are all getting zeroed out by the markets, and we need to properly recognize some of the most important work that's being done every day."
