Trump’s COVID Plan Needs To Take Notes From His TikTok Response | WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON EP. 21
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.
We’re kicking things off today with our first ever EXCLUSIVE interview — a White House sit down with Small Business Administrator Jovita Carranza — and will be dropping more interviews with the biggest names in finance and government nearly every episode. Datoc asked Carranza specifically how the government plans on improving the Payment Protection Program, which provided a huge economic boost earlier in the summer but did suffer from serious problems in its roll-out.

The guys also took a look back at both parties’ national conventions and broke down what the events told us about economic policy possibly taking the stage at the upcoming debates between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. (Spoiler alert: It’s not promising.)
Finally, we rounded out the episode by taking a look at Triller’s new bid to acquire TikTok. Like we’ve previously discussed, the company is of course one of Malik’s clients, but it’s obvious why it make more sense for a relatively small company to absorb the social media platform, rather than the likes of Microsoft, Walmart, or Oracle.
Don’t forget to check out the previous week’s episode if you haven’t already!
