This week, Former U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper released his book, “A Sacred Oath” which details his experiences working in the Trump administration and he has made headlines for some explosive allegations in his book about dysfunction in the Trump White House. Esper joins The Rundown to discuss his time in the Trump administration, his new memoir, how Russia’s war on Ukraine has been a strategic failure and why the rushed military pullout of Afghanistan has harmed the region now under Taliban rule.

The United States has now marked more than 1 million Covid-related deaths, a statistic President Biden calls a “tragic milestone.”  With even more cases predicted for a new wave in the fall and winter months, many wonder what else could have been done to prevent the virus from still being the issue it is today.  Dr. Marty Makary, professor at Johns Hopkins University and FOX News medical contributor, joins the Rundown to discuss the mistakes the government made in the early stages of the pandemic, how the U.S. should be using funds to combat the virus, and the abnormal flu season the country is seeing this year.
