Senator John Fetterman opposes the efforts to remove Donald Trump from the 2024 election ballots, stating that it would only make him more popular and energize his base.

Colorado and Maine have moved to block Trump from their ballots under the 14th Amendment, with potential Supreme Court involvement.

“I just want to just go on the record to say how incredibly unhelpful it is to have other states removing him from the ballot,” Fetterman said. (Trending: Sports Icon Dies Suddenly At 56)

“All of that is a gift to Trump. And all it does is just make him more popular and strong. That’s just going to energize his base—it’s just not helpful.”

“You know, he just absorbs this kind of energy,” Fetterman added.

“The only way that we’re going to put him away is going to be in an election.”

Fetterman’s stance contrasts with other Democrats, such as California Governor Gavin Newsom, who believe in defeating Trump at the polls rather than through disqualification.

This issue has sparked varied opinions within the Democratic party.

“There is no doubt that Donald Trump is a threat to our liberties and even to our democracy,” Gavin Newsom stated.

“In California, we defeat candidates at the polls. Everything else is a political distraction.”

“If you think about it, of all of the forms of disqualification that we have, the one that disqualifies people for engaging in insurrection is the most democratic because it’s the one where people choose themselves to be disqualified,” Rep. Jamie Raskin said.
