Supreme Court Rules They Can’t Remove Trump From Ballot

( – Donald Trump can’t be removed from the election ballot, according to a Supreme Court ruling. Therefore any state ruling has been revered, including Colorado, that voted to remove him from the ballot.

The ruling means that no other state can remove Donald Trump from their ballot and it also rules that no other candidate can be removed off of a ballot. Donald Trump’s placement on the ballot was being reconsidered after many argued that Donald Trump went against Section 3 of the 14th Amendment which says that nobody who takes the oath of federal office can serve in office again in the case that they “engaged in insurrection or rebellion.”

The first state to argue Trump’s place on the ballot after the role he played in the January 6 Capitol Riot was Colorado and was then followed by Maine and Illinois.

The Supreme Court stated, “We conclude that States may disqualify persons holding or attempting to hold state office, but States have no power under the Constitution to enforce Section 3 with respect to federal offices, especially the Presidency.”

They continued to say that the Supreme Court’s ruling does not rest with the states but with Congress. With this said, the decision did not state whether or not Donald Trump did commit insurrection or not.

Trump responded to the ruling by saying “The voters can take someone out of the race very quickly, but a court shouldn’t be doing that and the Supreme Court said that very well.”

“It was a very important decision, very well-crafted, and I think it will go a long way toward bringing our country together, which our country needs,” he said.

Colorado Secretary Jena Griswold said, “I do believe that states should be able under our Constitution to bar oath-breaking insurrectionists.”

The ruling states that Colorado citizen votes for Trump that were sent on Tuesday will be considered for the state.
