Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said that hiring a White House “climate change czar” would be a good idea.

Yang mentioned Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who dropped out of the Democratic presidential primary, as a candidate for the position.

“I’m sure he’d love that role,” Yang said during MSNBC’s climate change forum held at Georgetown University on Thursday.
