Yang added to DNC Speaker List After Tweeting Disappointment for Being Left Out

Last week Andrew Yang tweeted his disappointment for not being on the DNC speaker list.

“I’ve got to be honest I kind of expected to speak.” Yang wrote.

Rep. Ted Lieu also complained for Yang to the DNC, writing “Dear @DNC: Asian Americans are the fastest increasing group in America, including in multiple swing states. The gross underrepresentation of Asian American speakers in the four days of the DNC Convention is tone deaf and a slap in the face.”

Yang has now been added and will speak tonight.

Yang tweeted after he was added to the list “And it’s official – we have been added to the DNC Convention speaker lineup! Thank you #YangGang and everyone else who made this happen! ”
