Daily Caller White House correspondent Christian Datoc sits down with Wall Street guru and CEO of Farvahar Partners Omeed Malik 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.
This week, Datoc and Malik sat down with California Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna for an in-depth conversation on the disconnect between political elites and their constituents. (RELATED: ‘Find Something New’ — White House Partners With Apple, IBM To Promote Skills-Based Careers)
Datoc first pressed Khanna over what might happen to members of Congress from both parties if they continue to play politics and can’t pass a coronavirus aid package. Khanna agreed that the legislature is currently failing voters, but he did predict which provisions of the stimulus proposals that could pick up enough bipartisan support to be passed as standalone bills.

Speaking of turning a blind eye to workers, Khanna also offered his opinion on how technology can be used to create jobs in regions of the country left behind by the current political landscape. He also reflected on the lessons that companies and government should learn from how California is bungling its relationship with big tech, and why President Donald Trump is right to try to pull America out of endless wars in the Middle East.
