Do Joe Biden and the Democrats support late-term abortion?

Claim: Republicans have said that President Joe Biden and the Democrats support late-term abortion, including up until the moment of birth. 
Rating: This is MOSTLY FALSE. Biden supports Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal in the United States, and allowed abortions up until about 24 weeks (six months) of pregnancy. After that point, abortion is only allowed in situations where the woman’s life is threatened or if the fetus has birth defects that would not let it live outside of the womb. Roe v. Wade was overturned in June 2022, making abortion illegal in 13 states.

Will the Inflation Reduction Act fight inflation? 

Claim: President Joe Biden’s administration has claimed that the Inflation Reduction Act will provide inflation relief to Americans.
Rating: This claim is MOSTLY TRUE. The Inflation Reduction Act does not seek to directly affect inflation by altering monetary policy, which is the role of the Federal Reserve Bank. Instead, it seeks to address some of the historical causes of inflation by tackling health care and energy costs. It also invests in renewable energy and energy manufacturing, which protects the United States from global events that affect energy supply and cost.

Did Joe Biden authorize the FBI raid against Donald Trump

Claim: Former President Donald Trump has accused President Joe Biden of sending the FBI to raid Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. Biden has denied knowing about the FBI investigation of Trump. In addition, the FBI is led by Trump appointee Christopher Wray. Trump’s claim is to distract from him knowingly having classified documents in his possession at Mar-a-Lago, and refusing to return them to the federal government when requested. Those actions are a federal crime, according to several former Trump allies.
