China’s Xi Jinping met with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week, seemingly bolstering ties between two of the United States’ primary adversaries. This same week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing about foreign policy priorities, and it was here that Secretary of State Antony Blinken faced pointed questions about the nation’s foreign policy priorities. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman, Congressman Michael McCaul, joins the podcast to explain the consequences facing the West as a result of a burgeoning partnership between China and Russia. Later, he discusses the bipartisan effort to enact a national TikTok ban for the sake of national security and his push for the Biden administration’s accountability for the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing on Thursday related to security concerns over the popular social media app TikTok and its potential ties to the Chinese government. Despite TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew’s claims that the app is committed to protecting its users’ data, many lawmakers are considering the idea of banning the app entirely. FOX News Sunday Host Shannon Bream joins the Rundown to discuss why American politicians are challenging TikTok, the Federal Reserve’s attempts to fight inflation, and the troubling relationship growing between China and Russia.

Plus, commentary by former Congressman Jason Chaffetz, host of the Jason in the House podcast.
