Supreme Court Rules Unanimously For Trump!

In a resounding victory for former President Trump, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously upheld his challenge against Colorado’s bid to exclude him from the 2024 primary ballot. All nine justices sided with Trump, impacting similar efforts in over 30 states.

The Court, for the first time, interpreted Article 3 of the 14th Amendment, emphasizing that states lack constitutional authority to enforce Section 3 concerning federal offices like the Presidency. Challenges to remove Trump from ballots across multiple states faced a decisive setback.

Colorado’s Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, acknowledged the ruling, stating that the Supreme Court affirmed that states cannot enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment against federal candidates like Trump. This affirms Trump’s eligibility for Colorado’s 2024 Presidential Primary.

Trump celebrated the ruling on Truth Social, labeling it a “BIG WIN FOR AMERICA!!!”

Colorado’s argument, associating Trump’s conduct with the Jan. 6 Capitol riots as an “insurrection,” was dismissed by the Supreme Court. The Court highlighted the potential for conflicting state decisions and emphasized the need for consistency in electoral matters to preserve the integrity of the electoral process.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh delved into the complexities surrounding Section 3, questioning the consequences of state disqualification proceedings and the potential for conflicts among states in candidate eligibility determinations. Justice Samuel Alito pressed Colorado’s attorney about the perceived challenges stemming from the state’s argument, underlining concerns about managing conflicts among states’ decisions.
