FOX Business will host the second Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley, California, at 9:00 P.M. ET on Wednesday. With the business network hosting this event, there is likely to be more substantial discussions about the state of the U.S. economy, which recent polling shows a strong majority of Americans are both pessimistic and worried about. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel joins the podcast to explain her hopes that the FOX Business debate will give the 2024 candidates an opportunity to pitch their fix to America’s struggling economy. She explains why she believes Republicans are well-trusted on economic policy, what she predicts a Trump-Biden rematch might look like, and how the GOP can litigate the issue of abortion on the campaign trail.
There were eleven thousand migrant encounters at the southern border from Sunday to Monday–the most in a twenty-four-hour period. This year, the country has exceeded the record number of illegal crossings, with nearly 2.4 million migrants entering the United States. Thousands of asylum seekers have been bussed to sanctuary cities across the country to combat the surge, but now some of these mayors are demanding the federal government contribute resources to help care for newly arriving migrants. FOX’s Washington-based correspondent, Griff Jenkins, joins the Rundown from Eagle Pass, Texas, to discuss how overwhelmed the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials are now, why the majority of migrants entering Texas are first coming from Venezuela, and why the Biden administration favors releases versus the “Remain in Mexico” policy.
