As for the upcoming U.S. presidential elections, Donald Trump will run

Posted by

When former president Donald Trump challenged Colorado’s effort to remove his name from the ballot for the 2024 presidential election, the US Supreme Court unanimously agreed with him.

In Monday’s ruling, all nine justices of the Supreme Court supported Trump.

Efforts in a number of other states to deselect the probable Republican nominee will undoubtedly be affected by the verdict.

When deciding this case, the court first looked at the scope and interpretation of Article 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits reelection to public office for those who have “engaged in insurrection” in the past.

Keep in mind that more than 30 states have challenged Trump’s inclusion on the 2024 ballot.

Among the states that sought to have Trump removed from the ballot was Colorado, which claimed that Trump’s actions leading up to the disturbances on January 6 at the Capitol constituted an “insurrection” and so warranted his removal.

Yet, the highest court in the land reached a different conclusion, saying:

We find that states have the authority to bar individuals from running for or currently serving in state office. However, the states do not possess the authority to execute Section 3 in relation to federal posts, including the presidency, as stated in the Constitution.

“The United States Supreme Court has ruled that states do not have the authority to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment for federal candidates,” said Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold in a Monday statement, reacting to the decision.

“This ruling means that Donald Trump can run for president in Colorado in 2024.”
