'THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD CHOOSE!': Trump Team Releases Statement Ahead of SCOTUS Debate on Ballot Removal

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.08.24

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on Thursday regarding former President Donald Trump’s removal from the ballot in Colorado’s primary.

The focus of the hearing: did Trump commit “insurrection” by inciting a crowd to storm the U.S. Capitol Jan. 6, 2021. According to Fox News, an expedited ruling could come within days or weeks.

Spectators were lining up outside the court building as early as yesterday with blankets and chairs, hoping to secure one of the few seats reserved for the public.

Team Trump released a statement ahead of what’s sure to be a historic hearing.

“President Donald J. Trump won the Iowa caucuses with the largest margin ever for a non-incumbent and the New Hampshire primary with the most votes of any candidate from either party. He is the presumptive Republican nominee and the leading candidate for President of the United States,” the Trump legal team wrote.

“In our system of ‘government of the people, by the people, [and] for the people,’ … the American people — not courts or election officials — should choose the next President of the United States … Yet at a time when the United States is threatening sanctions against the socialist dictatorship in Venezuela for excluding the leading opposition candidate for president from the ballot, respondent Anderson asks this Court to impose that same anti-democratic measure at home.”

60 state and federal courts nationwide have refused to remove the former president from the ballot.
