Trump can stay on 2024 presidential ballot, Supreme Court rules


The Supreme Court on Monday declined to remove former President Donald Trump from the ballot in the 2024 presidential election, rejecting a challenge from Colorado voters who argued that he was prohibited from running because of his actions during the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. In a unanimous decision, the nation’s highest court found that “the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the States, responsible” for enforcing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits anyone who swore an oath to uphold the Constitution from holding public office if they have “engaged in insurrection.” Trump had also been barred from the primary ballots in Maine and Illinois based on the amendment.
