As a former CEO of a start-up, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said big technology conglomerates like Facebook, Google and Amazon would be "well served" if broken up into smaller companies as some of his Democratic opponents have proposed.

"I think in many cases they are too big," Yang told ABC News' Senior Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce and Political Director Rick Klein on the Powerhouse Politics podcast on Wednesday. "We would be well served by having them break themselves up into different parts of their businesses."
