Supreme Court to determine if Trump can run for President

The U.S. Supreme Court has announced that it would consider a landmark lawsuit to decide whether Donald Trump is eligible to run for president.

The Supreme Court’s decision to hear Trump’s appeal came after attorneys general from 27 states filed a brief asking the court to reject Colorado’s ruling.

The justices agreed to take up Trump’s appeal against a decision by Colorado to remove him from the 2024 ballot in that state.

The case will be heard in February 8 and the ruling will apply nationwide.

Lawsuits in a number of states are seeking to disqualify Trump, arguing that he engaged in insurrection during the U.S. Capitol riot three years ago.

The clash over the Constitution’s insurrection clause promises to be a pivot point in Trump’s bid to reclaim the White House.

A ruling against Trump would raise new questions about the viability of his candidacy.

The legal challenges hinge on whether a Civil War-era constitutional amendment renders Trump ineligible to stand as a candidate.
