Russia saw an attempted mutiny over the weekend when Wagner Group mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin marched an armed convoy on Moscow and seized control of the city of Rostov. The mercenary chief halted his advance, and a truce deal was formed. However, many in the U.S. are now speculating if this defiance of Putin suggests his power is weakening in Russia. As these hostilities unfold abroad, 2024 candidates are being questioned about how they would handle difficult foreign policy situations on the national stage. Former Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) just recently announced his candidacy for president, and he joins the Rundown to discuss why this mutiny should be a catalyst for America reconsidering our Russian foreign policy strategy, his critiques of President Biden, and why education should be a major concern for parents in this country.
Officials say that China is the most comprehensive threat facing the United States today. Although the two nations’ relationship has been deteriorating for many years, it has recently been escalated by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan in August 2022 and the Chinese spy balloon that flew across the U.S. earlier this year. During his trip to Beijing last week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Chinese representatives agreed to stabilize the ties between both countries and maintain better communication. Retired 4-star general, Chairman of the Institute for the Study of War, and FOX News Senior Strategic Analyst General Jack Keane joins to showcase how China continues to try and become the dominant world power, how the country would be affected if China went to war with Taiwan, and the national security implications of China’s presence in the Indo-Pacific.
