“Not yet determined, seeking a location,” Ryan tweeted. “Winner gets $1,000 a month.”

The $1,000 a month is a reference to Yang’s signature campaign promise of giving every American a “universal basic income” of $1,000 each month if he is elected president.

Yang quickly responded, saying he would be choosing “the one dance I can do apparently.”

Yang went viral last week after video showed him joining in on a "Jazzercise" class in which he did "The Cupid Shuffle,” so it appears the candidate may be doing the same dance agains Ryan in a potential matchup.
