Trump campaign celebrates as Supreme Court takes up 14th Amendment case and sets date for arguments

The Trump campaign celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court’s Friday decision to hear arguments to determine whether President Donald Trump is eligible to remain on the 2024 Republican presidential primary ballot in Colorado.

The justices granted a petition for review and fast-tracked the case, with oral arguments set to start on Thursday, Feb. 8.

The justices also issued a stay that forces the Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold to put President Trump’s name on the Republican primary ballot until the case is decided.

In an official statement, Trump Spokesman Steven Cheung wrote that the campaign would “welcome a fair hearing” at the high court “to argue against the bad-faith, election interfering, voter suppressing, Democrat-backed and Biden-led, 14th Amendment Abusing decision” to block the 45th president from appearing on the state’s ballot.

He added, “The so-called ‘ballot-challenge cases’ are all part of a well-funded effort by left-wing, political activists hell-bent on stopping the lawful reelection of President Trump this November, even if it means disenfranchising voters.”

“President Trump is dominating the polls, and the Biden presidency has failed all Americans,” Cheung explained. “We are confident that the fair-minded Supreme Court will unanimously affirm the civil rights of President Trump, and the voting rights of all Americans in a ruling that will squash all of the remaining ballot challenge hoaxes once and for all.”

The Democrat-led Colorado Supreme Court previously ruled that the 45th president could not appear on the state’s GOP primary ballot because he “engaged in insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021, during the protests at the Capitol Building.

In a 4-3 decision, the Colorado Supreme Court argued that President Trump violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which bars those who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the United States from holding public office.

The Trump campaign immediately appealed the case and sought to send it to the Supreme Court. The campaign’s pleas to move the case to the high court also received a coalition of support from 27 attorneys general across the nation.

Although Colorado’s ruling only applies explicitly to that state, Democrat officials nationwide have fought to block Trump’s name from their state’s ballots.

In late December, Maine Democrat Secretary of State Shenna Bellows took it upon herself to ban Trump from appearing on her state’s ballot later this year—which the Trump campaign has already appealed in state court.

You could never find the words to describe how much I loved you. No matter how beautiful the picture is or how polished your writing is, you read it quickly. To be honest, I think you should give it another chance soon. I will probably try to go on this hike again and again if you make sure it is safe.
