Former President Donald Trump, who presided over an optimistic America, used the Truth Social platform to declare victory after the Michigan Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit seeking to prohibit him from appearing on the state’s primary ballot for the 2024 election. The majority of the Michigan Supreme Court is Democratic.
“The Michigan Supreme Court has strongly and rightfully denied the Desperate Democrat attempt to take the leading Candidate in the 2024 Presidential Election, me, off the ballot in the Great State of Michigan. This pathetic gambit to rig the Election has failed all across the Country, including in States that have historically leaned heavily toward the Democrats. Colorado is the only State to have fallen prey to the scheme,” expressed Trump.
Following that, he redirected his attention to the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision, which imposed a prohibition on his ability to vote in the state’s 2024 election. Legal authorities have expressed strong disapproval of this course of action.
“We have to prevent the 2024 Election from being Rigged and Stolen like they stole 2020 – just look at the complete mess we have as a result with Crooked Joe Biden violently destroying everything in his sight, from our once-great Economy to our once-fair Justice System,” former President Trump added. “We have to save our Country from decline and the Radical Left. Make America Great Again!”

Legislative organizations leaning to the left have advocated for Trump’s removal from primary ballots in more than a dozen states. The challenges make reference to Section III of the 14th Amendment, which forbids former United States officials who have participated in “insurrection” despite swearing allegiance to the Constitution from running for federal office.
This clause is found in the Fourteenth Amendment:
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Despite the absence of legal charges or convictions regarding his alleged incitement of a “insurrection” on January 6, 2021, the Colorado Supreme Court issued an atypical order to remove Trump from the ballot last week. Trump has declared his intention to contest the verdict through the submission of an appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States.
At this time, difficulties continue to exist in more than a dozen states.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
An appeals court in Michigan has already rejected a case brought by the leftist advocacy group Attorneys for Free Speech for People. After careful consideration of the legal challenge, the court eventually determined that the secretary of state of Michigan lacks the jurisdiction to prevent Trump from appearing on the state’s ballot.
Earlier this month, a federal judge in Arizona “rejected the case questioning former President Donald Trump’s qualification to run for president, which is a big legal victory for him. This outcome is particularly important as Trump is currently considered the leading candidate for the 2024 presidential election.” CONTINUE READING…
