Trump, Mar-a-Lago, Inflation Reduction Act: politics news this week


Trump, Mar-a-Lago, Inflation Reduction Act: politics news this week

The search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate topped a busy week in politics, which included passage of the Inflation Reduction Act and primaries.

  • The House passed the Inflation Reduction Act, sending it to President Joe Biden.
  • National gas prices fell below $4 per gallon. Biden signed the PACT Act and toured Kentucky floods.
  • Rep. Ilhan Omar barely won her primary. Trump pleaded the Fifth in a deposition.

“This week has been monumental.” 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s statement – given to reporters ahead of voting to pass the Inflation Reduction Act – feels like an understatement. 

Between the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, passage and signature of landmark legislation to solidify Biden’s domestic agenda, and primary elections in four states, this week was jam-packed for Washington.
