Is Donald Trump over? Should Joe Biden run in 2024? What should Democrats do in the lame-duck session before Republicans take over the House?

Democrats will retain control of the Senate. Republicans captured the House.

There was no red wave. But there was no blue wave, either.

What does it all mean? I sat down with my good friend Congressman Ro Khanna (D-CA) to discuss.

Aside from a few remaining contests (and the upcoming Georgia runoff), the results of the election are in and one thing is certainly clear — Americans chose not to make any more waves this time around. Despite voters embracing stability over chaos and election denialism, many outstanding questions remain.

Is Donald Trump over? Should Joe Biden run in 2024? What should Democrats do in the lame-duck session before Republicans take over the House?

These are just a few of the hot button issues that I cover with Congressman Khanna — a member of the House Progressive Caucus who represents Silicon Valley, and someone whose name has been floated as a potential future presidential candidate.

I hope you’ll enjoy our conversation as much as I did.
