State Supreme Court Rules Trump Not Eligible To Run In 2024, Removes Him From Ballot | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The Colorado Supreme Court removed former President Donald Trump from the state's 2024 presidential ballot on Tuesday after ruling that he engaged in an insurrection with his actions on January 6, 2021.

    The 4-3 ruling will be placed on hold pending appeal until January 4, the Court said in its ruling.

    "A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution," the ruling said. "Because he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Colorado Secretary of State to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot."

    The Trump campaign responded to the ruling by saying that they would "swiftly file an appeal," calling it "a completely flawed decision" that was "deeply undemocratic."

    "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," a spokesperson for the campaign said.

    The Court said that they had "little difficulty concluding that substantial evidence" existed that showed "a concerted and public use of force or threat of force by a group of people to hinder or prevent the U.S. government from taking the actions necessary to accomplish the peaceful transfer of power in this country."

    The Court said that because of this, "the events of January 6 constituted an insurrection."

    "We do not reach these conclusions lightly," the Court said in its ruling. "We are mindful of the magnitude and weight of the questions now before us. We are likewise mindful of our solemn duty to apply the law, without fear or favor, and without being swayed by public reaction to the decisions that the law mandates we reach."
