Yang did not specifically call out which “ideas” the press covered that his tweet referred to.
On Wednesday Trump backtracked a day after he said the White House was discussing a temporary payroll tax cut.
This week Trump also decided to postpone a planned state visit to Denmark after the Danish prime minister called Trump’s interest in purchasing Greenland “absurd.”
Yang, a tech entrepreneur, lags behind the top-tier candidates in the race, but a RealClearPolitics average of polling has him at 1.8 percent, which places him ahead of about half his primary opponents.
