MORE called out CNN and MSNBC for not including him in a graphic about White House hopefuls’ third-quarter fundraising totals.

“Maybe next time we should raise $20 million #YangGang,” Yang tweeted Thursday, sharing a graphic from CNN that included the fundraising totals from Sen.

The graphic shows the totals for the candidates, ranging from Sanders’s $25.3 million for the third quarter to Booker’s $6 million. However, Yang, who does not appear in the graphic, raised $10 million in the third quarter, according to his campaign. That number would put him ahead of Booker and just behind Harris. 

CNN said Friday morning that the graphic has been updated for future use.

CNN was not the only news outlet Yang accused of leaving him out. He also tweeted an MSNBC graph showing Sanders’s, Buttigieg’s, Harris’s and Booker’s fundraising hauls.

“I’m pretty sure I should be on this graphic,” Yang tweeted.

The #YangGang, as Yang’s supporters call themselves, and other Twitter users were quick to respond to the businessman’s tweets.

 Yang showed one of the sharpest spikes between second and third-quarter fundraising. Between April and June of 2019, he raised roughly $2.8 million, according to federal filings.

MSNBC responded to Yang's tweet that the graphic aired before Yang released his third-quarter fundraising totals.
