Trump Campaign Responds to 2024 Ballot Disqualification by Colorado Supreme Court

Date:

Following the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to remove Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 presidential election ballot, the Trump Campaign released a statement calling the ruling “a completely flawed decision.”

“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,” the statement said.

“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. 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.”

The Colorado Supreme Court argued that Trump is ineligible to be a candidate under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment “because he engaged in insurrection on January 6, 2021, after swearing an oath as President to support the U.S. Constitution.” Section 3 states that no one shall hold office having “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

“We conclude that because President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Secretary to list President Trump as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot. Therefore, the Secretary may not list President Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot, nor may she count any write-in votes cast for him,” the ruling stated.

The ruling will not go into effect until January 4, 2024, pending the Trump Campaign’s appeal to the US Supreme Court.
