Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich expressed concern on “The Ingraham Angle” about the removal of former President Donald Trump from Colorado’s ballot by the state’s Supreme Court.
He criticized the decision as a display of establishment arrogance and warned that it could lead to a disastrous confrontation among Americans.
Gingrich highlighted the potential impact on the American people’s right to choose their president and compared the situation to historical election issues. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)
“No, I think this is potentially a catastrophe,” Gingrich said.
“1,360,000 Coloradans voted for Donald Trump in the last election. Four lawyers want to block him from being on the ballot — that means basically, for every 340,000 Coloradans who voted for Trump, one lawyer is stopping him.”
“That’s a system of establishment arrogance. That’s not sustainable.”
“The last great effort like this was the 10 states that refused to put Abraham Lincoln on the ballot in 1860.”
“The American people are not going to tolerate — and I hope the Supreme Court fully understands this.”
“The American people are not going to tolerate being told that they’re not allowed to have a choice for who they want to have as president. This is not Venezuela. It’s not Nicaragua.”
“It’s not Cuba. And I think the Democrats are dangerously close to causing the kind of confrontation that would be truly disastrous for the country,” Gingrich said.
The ruling has prompted Trump’s campaign team to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court before the state’s ballot certification deadline.
