“A Double Referendum Election”: Unusual Dynamics At Play In 2024

As Election Day gets closer, former President Donald Trump continues to assert that the New York hush-money trial is “a scam” and “a witch hunt.” The former president denies he falsified business records before the 2016 election, blaming his mounting legal issues on his opponent, President Biden. Anchor and executive editor of The Story on the Fox News Channel, Martha MacCallum, explains why former President Trump has an advantage over President Biden, previews the veepstakes, and discusses why the only thing the candidates agree on is keeping Robert F. Kennedy Jr. off the debate stage.

Early Monday morning, Iranian state media confirmed that President Ebrahim Raisi died in a helicopter crash that also killed the country’s foreign minister. Now questions arise as to what foreign relations with the country will be like under interim President Mohammad Mokhber. Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) joins the Rundown to discuss how the Iranian President’s death impacts foreign policy, how the Biden administration has been handling conflict in the Middle East, and what measures he would like to see taken against the authoritative regime.
