"You know who’s figured this out? President Trump. I am the only candidate he has not tweeted a word about. He knows I am better at the internet than he is,” Yang said Monday ahead of the Iowa caucuses.

Yang has remarked several times that he is better at the internet than Trump.

Describing Iowa’s position as one of several states in the Midwest that voted for former President Obama twice before flipping to Trump, Yang said on Monday that “if you’re going to start bringing the country together, it has to start right here among the people that voted for Trump just a few years ago.”

“The folks that voted for Trump and now come to my events and are excited about my campaign, that’s how we’re going to win,” Yang added, saying that “18 percent of college Republicans” had said they would support him over the president and citing another unspecified poll that shows him drawing 10 percent of Trump voters in New Hampshire.
