The Colorado Supreme Court has disqualified former President Trump from appearing on the state’s ballots in 2024 due to his alleged role in inciting the January 6 insurrection and attempting to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election.

Steven Cheung, Trump Campaign Spokesman, responded, “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.”

“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,” he continued.

“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,” he added.

“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.”

The disqualification is based on the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the court announced.

The ruling is stayed until January 4 due to likely appeals, and three justices dissented.

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold stated that she would continue to follow court guidance on the issue.

“The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled that Donald Trump is barred from the Colorado ballot for inciting the January 6 insurrection and attempting to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election. This decision may be appealed,” Griswold wrote.

Colorado’s 10 electoral votes were not believed to be part of former President Donald Trump’s projected path to reelection.

CNN political director David Chalian said, “If you start taking potentially available electoral votes off the board, the map to 270, even though this was not part of his 2020 path, becomes more complicated in that way.”

“He’s not necessarily playing for the 10 electoral votes in Colorado,” she told CNN.

“But it’s the precedent it sets and it’s also just the mindset that it signals to voters, which is, for the first time in history, he is unfit to appear on a ballot for the presidency.”

Senior legal analyst Elie Honig said, “There have been dozens of these challenges filed across the country, and 18 or so of them have either failed, been rejected, or been withdrawn by the plaintiff. So this is really an outlier.”
