2024 Heating Up

ON THE BALLOT: Michigan Court of Appeals Rules Trump Can Remain on 2024 Primary Ballot

Donald Trump’s 2024 troubles continue to fall away…

According to an ABC News report, a Michigan court of appeals has ruled that former President and 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump can remain on the 2024 GOP primary ballot.

“The Michigan court upheld two lower courts’ rulings by rejecting an appeal filed by the watchdog group Free Speech For People on behalf of a group of Michigan voters,” ABC News reports

The opinion was 3-0 in favor of Trump.

“As the Court of Claims recognized, it would be improper to decide whether to grant a declaration that Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President of the United States at this time,” the court wrote.

“At the moment, the only event about to occur is the presidential primary election. But as explained, whether Trump is disqualified is irrelevant to his placement on that particular ballot. Thus, with respect to the presidential primary election, there is no actual controversy, as the only purported basis for removing Trump from the presidential primary ballot would not be a sufficient basis for removal of Trump’s name from that ballot,” the court said.

Trump’s team issued a statement on the ruling Thursday evening.

“With the Michigan Court of Appeals’ affirmation of the Trump campaign’s victories in the lower court, the Soros-funded Democrats have once again failed in their desperate attempt to interfere in the election via a bad-faith interpretation of the 14th Amendment. President Trump remains undefeated against these frivolous legal claims and has never been in a stronger position to win next year’s election,” campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement.
