Representative Jamie Raskin believes that former President Donald Trump, along with a small group of Americans, has “disqualified themselves” for the presidency due to their actions.

Raskin emphasized the importance of the Supreme Court acting to address the issue of ballot access for such individuals, arguing that disqualification for engaging in insurrection is the most democratic form of disqualification.

“Every state will control its own ballot access and access to candidates for the ballot. And that is obviously difficult when we’re talking about electing the president, who is the one official we’ve got in America who is supposed to represent the entire country, represent everybody,” Raskin said.

“And so I think that the urgency is for the Supreme Court to act, but I think it’s going to be tough for some of them if they want to keep Trump on the ballot.”

“If they’re falling for the argument that this is undemocratic.”

“Is it undemocratic that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jennifer Granholm can’t run for president because they weren’t born in the country? Of all of the forms of disqualification that we have, the one that disqualifies people for engaging in insurrection is the most democratic.”

“It’s the one where people choose themselves to be disqualified in terms of your age or where you were born.”

“That’s not up to. But Donald Trump is in that tiny, tiny number of people who have essentially disqualified themselves.”
