Trump Petitions Supreme Court to Overturn Colorado Ruling

Former President Trump has now petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the recent Colorado ruling declaring him to be an insurrectionist ineligible to be on the 2024 presidential ballot.

Filed Wednesday, the petition said the Colorado Supreme Court ruling wrongly excluded Trump from the 2024 primary ballot by preventing “voters from casting ballots for the leading major-party presidential candidate.”

“The question of eligibility to serve as President of the United States is properly reserved for Congress, not the state courts, to consider and decide,” it said.

The petition further argued that the Colorado Supreme Court misapplied Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment in its ruling by wrongfully classifying the former president as an “officer of the United States,” saying, “President Trump falls outside the scope of section 3.”
