This week, Ben sits down with former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper to discuss his new book, A Sacred Oath: Memoirs of a Secretary of Defense During Extraordinary Times.

Secretary Esper explains why he believes the U.S. Navy needs a dramatic overhaul, why the Chinese Communist Party poses the greatest geopolitical threat and some insight into where President Trump and Secretary Esper differed on the best strategy to handle the border crisis.

Later, Ben speaks with Captain Hung Cao, who recently won the Republican Primary in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. Captain Cao gives insight into how the Loudon County school district saga has motivated Virginia Republicans.
