Colorado Supreme Court kicks Trump off ballot

The Colorado Supreme Court on Tuesday banned former President Donald Trump from appearing on the state’s ballot for the 2024 presidential election.

Those who have argued that Trump should not be on states’ ballots have cited a Civil War-era clause in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that mandates officials who take an oath to support the Constitution to be banned from office in the future if they engage in “insurrection.” Those fighting Trump’s eligibility say his actions during and related to the January 6, 2021, siege on the U.S. Capitol amounted to engaging in an insurrection.

“A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the Colorado Supreme Court said in its ruling.

Steven Cheung, spokesperson for Trump’s campaign, vowed to file an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Unsurprisingly, the all-Democrat appointed Colorado Supreme Court has ruled against President Trump, supporting a Soros-funded, left-wing group’s scheme to interfere in an election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden by removing President Trump’s name from the ballot and eliminating the rights of Colorado voters to vote for the candidate of their choice,” Cheung said in a statement.
