Another President Biden Immigration Executive Order

President Biden addressed the nation yesterday, unveiling more executive action on the border.

One-on-One With RFK Jr.

Independent 2024 presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has been vocal about institutional obstacles his campaign has faced in reaching 2024 voters. He wants to debate the two frontrunners and earn his way onto state ballots across the country. While the Kennedy campaign has attempted to frame his candidacy as a viable third option, the Trump and Biden campaigns have been aggressive in labeling him as either an "anti-vaxxer" or a “radical leftist.” Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. joins the Rundown to set the record straight and discuss efforts to get his name on the ballot in 2024. Later, he discusses his plan to curb drug addiction in America and what he would do differently if he were in charge of the U.S. immigration system. This week, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy called for social media companies to issue mental health warnings on their platforms. He argues that a warning would be a step in the right direction toward protecting minors' mental health. Research shows that American teenagers spend an average of nearly five hours on social media daily. Dr. Murthy says there have been successes with similar warnings on tobacco products in reducing smoking in the United States. Director of the Tech Policy Center at The Heritage Foundation, Kara Frederick, joins to discuss how social media has evolved and how harmful algorithms are for developing brains.

President Biden's G7 Performance & Terror Threats At The Southern Border

This past week President Biden travelled to Italy for the G7 Summit, where he pledged $50 billion in new aid to Ukraine that is backed by seized Russian assets. Over the weekend peace talks were held in Switzerland, where notably Russia was not invited, after President Vladimir Putin proposed his own peace plan that involved Ukraine ceding all land occupied by Russia. Meanwhile, at the border with Mexico, migrants continue to enter the nation with eight people from Tajikistan with ties to ISIS being arrested last week. Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Mike Turner (R-OH-10) joins the Rundown to share his thoughts on the President's performance in Europe, his assessment of the terror threats at the border, and what he thinks of Russian ships docking in Havana, Cuba. On Friday, Pope Francis became the first to address a G7 Summit of world leaders. He used the occasion to talk about the perils and promises of artificial intelligence and why he worries about how the technology could be used in future wars. Pope Francis is far from the only person concerned about where AI is going. Some experts warn if we don't control the technology, it could even lead to human extinction. But Jamie Metzl, who served in the National Security Council during the Clinton administration, says in his new book, “Superconvergence”, why he’s cautiously optimistic about AI and how it has the potential to help humanity thrive. Metzl, joins the Rundown to discuss how he believes AI can change our world for the better and how our species can avoid its pitfalls.

Extra: Trey Gowdy On Hunter Biden, President Trump, And The "Weaponization" Of The DOJ

It took a federal jury in Delaware only about three hours to find President Biden's son Hunter guilty of three felonies. The charges included lying about drug use when he bought a gun in 2018 and then illegally having possession of that gun. President Biden says he'll accept the outcome and will not pardon his son or commute his sentence. Some Democrats in Congress suggested the conviction blows up Republican claims of a weaponized justice system that is unfairly targeting former President Trump and other conservatives. Shortly after the jury’s decision, FOX News Rundown host Lisa Brady spoke with former federal prosecutor and Congressman Trey Gowdy. The host of FOX News’ Sunday Night in America and the Trey Growdy Podcast weighed in on the verdict and explained why he was not surprised at all that Hunter Biden was found guilty on all counts. Gowdy also discussed the politics surrounding the case, the likelihood the President would pardon his son, and whether he thinks the conviction is proof the DOJ and justice system is still fair. The conversation was long and we could not include all of it in our original FOX News Rundown segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire conversation with FOX News contributor and former federal prosecutor Trey Gowdy and hear even more of his unique and sometimes humorous take on the legal troubles surrounding the Biden family and Donald Trump.

From Washington: Why Hunter Biden's Conviction Could Be Bad News For Former President Trump

 This past week, Hunter Biden became the first child of a sitting President to be convicted of a crime.

Former President Donald Trump has nearly a month to choose his running mate for the 2024 election, and there are several well-known individuals on his not-so-short list. Kyle Kondik, the managing editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia Center for Politics, discusses Trump's possible VP picks and their potential impact on his campaign.
