Louisiana is considering removing former President Donald Trump from the state’s primary ballot based on the 14th Amendment.

A lawsuit was filed against Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin, arguing that Trump’s actions and inaction during the Jan. 6 riot disqualify him from holding any office under the United States.

Similar challenges have been filed in other states, with Colorado being the first to rule in favor of the challenge. (Trending: Ex-Marine Imprisoned In Russia Sends Message To Biden)

According to the lawsuit, “Both Trump’s actions (engaging in insurrection) as well as his inaction (giving aid and comfort to insurrectionists) on Jan. 6, 2021, disqualify him from holding any office of/under the United States.”

Trump has responded on Truth Social, calling the efforts a failed gambit.

His Republican primary rivals and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have also criticized the efforts.

“This pathetic gambit to rig the Election has failed all across the Country, including in States that have historically leaned heavily toward the Democrats,” wrote Trump.

“Colorado is the only State to have fallen prey to the scheme,” continued the former president.
