Daily Caller White House correspondent Christian Datoc sits down with Wall Street guru and CEO of Farvahar Partners Omeed Malik every Friday for a new episode of “WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON.” It’s the only show that breaks down the beltway’s economic updates for both financial VIPs and everyday Americans looking for market tips.
We’re starting this week on President Donald Trump’s accusation that former Vice President Joe Biden ripped off his “Buy American” plan. On the one hand, he’s right. On the other, it was absolutely a savvy political move from Biden, and one that American workers will take note of while voting in November. (RELATED: What’s In Biden’s Big Economic Plan? Where He May Find Conservative Support (And Where He Definitely Won’t))
Malik and Datoc ran down the weeks economic and coronavirus updates and did a deep dive on two of the biggest macro trends impacting the U.S.’s relationship with China. In layman’s terms, get ready to delete Tik Tok from your phone.
Finally, the guys conduct a little thought experiment on school. Is the Trump administration’s push to relaunch in-person classes a smart one? PLUS, what will social scientists 50 years in the future say about our society’s addiction to social media? We probably won’t have to wait that long to find out about its negative effects on our nation’s young people.
Don’t forget to check out last week’s episode if you haven’t already!
