The US Supreme Court has unanimously sided with former President Donald Trump in opposing Colorado’s attempt to disqualify him from the 2024 presidential election.

In the judgement handed down on Monday, all nine Supreme Court justices agreed with President Trump.

Efforts to remove the likely GOP nominee from several other states’ ballots will certainly be affected by the decision.

The 14th Amendment’s Article 3, which prohibits former office holders who “engaged in insurrection” from holding public office again, was taken into consideration by the court for the first time.

Recall that more than thirty states have filed challenges to remove Trump from the 2024 ballot.

Trump should be withdrawn from the state’s ballot, according to one of the states, Colorado, because of his actions contributing to the Capitol rioting on January 6.

The Supreme Court, however, issued a different decision, stating that states had the authority to disqualify anyone who was running for or had already been elected to a state position. However, the Constitution does not give States the authority to enforce Section 3 with regard to federal offices, including the presidency.

Reacting to the ruling, Colorado’s Secretary of State Jena Griswold issued a statement Monday, saying, “The United States Supreme Court has ruled that states do not have the authority to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment for federal candidates.”

“In accordance with this decision, Donald Trump is an eligible candidate on Colorado’s 2024 Presidential Primary.”

In response to the decision, Trump wrote on Truth Social, writing, “BIG WIN FOR AMERICA!!!”
