The Taliban took control of Kabul overnight, with chaotic scenes emerging of people trying to flee Afghanistan in any way they can.

Matt Mayer, US Public Policy expert and a former senior official at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security joined Kieran on Monday's edition of The Hard Shoulder to discuss what the US President could do.
