Donald Trump is facing a Supreme Court decision.
It's a BIG ONE.
In fact, some people are calling it a decision that Trump...
CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE.
That's the opinion of Newsweek journalist Katherine Fung. She says that the U.S. Supreme Court is going to decide very soon if it will hear a case on the topic of banning Donald Trump from running for federal office in the future.
She says that the Supreme Court really needs to make the proper decision on whether to take a case on Trump's candidacy, because this is a situation that the former president "can't afford to lose."
The U.S. Supreme Court is currently deciding whether or not to hear the matter of John Castro v. Donald Trump and will make the decision on whether to accept it by Oct. 9 at the latest.
The outlet 1945 summarized Castro's case against Trump:
Castro, a Texas tax attorney, claims that Trump participated in an insurrection against the U.S. government by organizing his rally against certification of the 2020 election on Jan. 6, 2021. He is a declared candidate for the Republican nomination and has previously run for various offices. Castro ran for his first race in 2004 as a Democrat. He is currently running as a write-in candidate.
Fung said that Castro "is arguing that because he and Trump are appealing to the same voters and donors, Trump’s candidacy—which he argues is unconstitutional because of Trump’s involvement in the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot—would cause him 'political competitive' injuries."
Obviously, Castro doesn't have a shot at winning any sort of national election, but does that mean he shouldn't be afforded these protections?
If he is interested in attracting the same voter base as Donald Trump, and the former president shouldn't be allowed to pursue them, then I would say Castro would be silly not to look into this.
Will it work? Probably not.
Was it worth a shot? Time will tell.
