Andrew Yang said he won’t appear on MSNBC until the network offers him an on-air apology for granting him so little speaking time during the last debate.
Yang, 44, received the least debate time out of all the candidates on stage at Wednesday’s debate despite polling above multiple other contenders. Yang spoke for about six minutes and 48 seconds, far behind others who spoke for more than 12 minutes.
On Saturday, Yang gave the network an ultimatum via Twitter if they want him back on air.
“Was asked to appear on @msnbc this weekend – and told them that I’d be happy to after they apologize on-air, discuss and include our campaign consistent with our polling, and allow surrogates from our campaign as they do other candidates’. They think we need them. We don’t,” he said.
