Citing section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the US constitution, Colorado’s apex court ruled that the former president led US citizens to overthrow the government when he lost to President Joe Biden in 2020.

It wrote on Tuesday:

“We do not reach these conclusions lightly. We are mindful of the magnitude and weight of the questions now before us.

“We are likewise mindful of our solemn duty to apply the law, without fear or favor, and without being swayed by public reaction to the decisions that the law mandates we reach.”

However, the decision has been placed on hold and it does not apply to other 49 states outside Colorado.

This is the lastest attempt to kick Trump out of 2024 race where he has great prospect of winning according to many polls. Similar lawsuits in New Hampshire, Minnesota and Michigan have failed.

Reacting, Steven Cheung, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, said the ruling is “flawed” and lambasted the justices, who were all appointed by Democratic governors.

“Democrat Party leaders are in a state of paranoia over the growing, dominant lead President Trump has amassed in the polls,” Mr Cheung said.

“They have lost faith in the failed Biden presidency and are now doing everything they can to stop the American voters from throwing them out of office next November,” Cheung said.

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was ratified after American Civil War to block secessionists from returning to previous government roles once southern states re-joined the Union.

The secession clause is very unpopular and, in centuries of America’s history, it was applied only once against Confederate president Jefferson Davis and his vice-president Alexander Stephens.
