Is Trump Eligible Under The Fourteenth Amendment?

Common sense Americans know that Donald Trump should be eligible to run in the 2024 election.

This does not mean that liberals agree.

In fact, we should have seen this coming because of just how rarely liberals are willing to accept what the right thing to do is and put that ahead of what's best for their party.

They know that they don't have a legitimate set of arguments against Trump.

All they're hoping to do is throw enough things at the former president to make at least one of them stick.

They aren't seeking justice; they're seeking to make sure that the results of the 2024 election end up falling a certain way.

Unfortunately, some Republicans in Colorado are apparently as unscrupulous or as uneducated as liberals are, because this group, being led by Noah Bookbinder, is trying to boot Trump from the ballot, saying:

The 14th Amendment says that anybody who swore an oath to support the Constitution and then engaged in insurrection is disqualified. The Constitution says you need to be 35 years old to be president, you need to be a natural born citizen. And there are procedures in place for ensuring that only qualified candidates can run and can serve … This is sort of just another constitutional qualification.

Trump does not agree.

He simply called the idea of trying to disqualify him from the 2024 election as "another ‘trick’ being used by the Radical Left Communists, Marxists, and Fascists."

Michael McConnell, director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School, doesn't think that Trump will be taken off any ballots, however.

"This is uncharted territory. Any lawyer or scholar who tells you confidently one thing or the other is making it up. No one really knows," McConnell said. "I think it’s pretty unlikely that these challenges are gonna succeed."
