Colorado Supreme Court Removes Trump From Presidential Race

The Supreme Court of Colorado has barred former President Donald Trump from contesting from the state.

The Supreme Court used a rarely invoked article 14 of the U.S. Constitution that restricts people from holding public office if they are involved in rebellion.

Trump’s political campaign said they will challenge the decision in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Another Hurdle

The decision of the Colorado Supreme Court is yet another political hurdle the former President is yet to overcome.

Mr. Trump also faces five legal hurdles, including a hush-money case and mishandling of classified documents.

The Colorado Supreme Court decision comes under section 3 of the 14th Amendment enacted in the U.S. Constitution after the U.S. Civil War.

First President To Be Bared

The historic 4-3 ruling disqualifies anyone from running for the President if he/she is involved in inciting the public to rebel.

Donald Trump became the first-ever presidential candidate, now deemed ineligible for the White House.

Trump’s campaign spokesperson said the court’s decision was “flawed” and it’ll file an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
