Megan Morrone and Jason Howell talk to Matt McFarland from CNN Tech about his story, "Trump's populism is only the beginning.  Here come the robots."  Last week's election showed us that a lot of American voters feel left out and many are afraid for their jobs.  Matt McFarland who writes for CNN Tech says this is going to get worse before it gets better and he joined us to talk about it.  Matt says, "Looming technological advances will wipe out more jobs, broadening the base of disenfranchised, unemployable and frustrated citizens."  Advances in technology will make it unlikely that Trump will be able to keep his promise to bring back jobs from overseas.
