The powerful role money plays in politics

Season 2024 Episode 13 | 16m 24s

At a Radio City Music Hall event that featured former Presidents Clinton and Obama, President Biden raised $25 million for his campaign. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is selling “God Bless the USA Bibles” for $60 a pop, part of an effort to fund his cash-strapped campaign and pay his legal bills, which are becoming biblical in scale.

Major funding for “Washington Week with The Atlantic” is provided by Consumer Cellular, Otsuka, Kaiser Permanente, the Yuen Foundation, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
