Donald Trump Kicked Of Colorado Ballot

The Colorado Supreme Court has disqualified former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 presidential ballot over the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist” ban.

The court ruled that Trump violated the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist ban” and is ineligible to be on the ballot in the state, according to Daily Caller.

The court, in a 4-3 decision, found that Colorado courts do not need an act of Congress to remove Trump from the ballot. The court also found that the Jan. 6 protest amounted to an insurrection in which Trump allegedly “engaged” in.

Chief Justice Brian Boatright, who dissented, argued that the state’s election law was not enacted to decide whether a candidate engaged in insurrection.

“In the absence of an insurrection-related conviction, I would hold that a request to disqualify a candidate under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment is not a proper cause of action under Colorado’s election code.”

Trump took to his Truth Social account to respond to the ruling with fury, with the former president accusing his successor, President Joe Biden, of weaponizing the Justice system.

“So, now we have reached a point when a President of the United States has WEAPONIZED the Department of Justice as though we were a Third World Country,” Trump wrote. “They don’t want to run against me, and never have. I am leading in the Polls, by a lot, and based on the results of the failed Biden Administration, this will continue. But ‘Justice’ Weaponization is a very dirty game to play, and it can have repercussions far greater than anything that Biden or his Thugs could understand. They ought to withdraw all of their Fake, Political Indictments against their Republican Opponent, me, immediately. This is a Pandora’s Box, that works two ways, and it should be closed and tightly sealed RIGHT NOW. Withdraw your Political Indictments and Lawsuits, Joe, before it is too late!”

Steven Cheung, Trump’s campaign spokesman, described the ruling as “un-American” and “deeply undemocratic decision.”

“Democrat Party leaders are in a state of paranoia over the growing, dominant lead President Trump has amassed in the polls. They have lost faith in the failed Biden presidency and are now doing everything they can to stop the American voters from throwing them out of office next November,” Cheung said. “The Colorado Supreme Court issued a completely flawed decision tonight and we will swiftly file an appeal to the United States Supreme Court and a concurrent request for a stay of this deeply undemocratic decision. We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits.”

The ruling is, however, on hold pending an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
