It’s been a year since the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan. Ever since the Taliban seized control of Kabul, the Afghan economy has collapsed, women have been forced to cover themselves in public, and the majority of young girls have been barred from receiving secondary education. Many Congressional Republicans have criticized President Biden, believing that the withdrawal was a mistake. Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) fought in the War in Afghanistan. He joins the Rundown to discuss the shortcomings of the US withdrawal and the ongoing threat of Al Qaeda that America continues to face today. He also discusses the status of legislation he’s developing that would help Afghans who fought alongside Americans be able to stay in the U.S., protected against Taliban threats.
Former President Trump’s endorsement has played an influential role in many of this year’s primaries thus far. Tonight’s elections in Wyoming and Alaska will continue to shed light on how much power the former President has over the Republican Party. To provide some insight into Wyoming’s race, Fox News Senior National Correspondent Rich Edson joins the Rundown from Teton Village, WY. He explains how Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s involvement in the January 6 committee has impacted her race against Trump-endorsed candidate Harriet Hageman. Later, Fox News Chief Correspondent Jonathan Hunt joins from Anchorage, Alaska to discuss the red-hot race between Senator Lisa Murkowski and Trump-endorsed Kelly Tshibaka.
