The 14th Amendment of The U.S. Constitution is clear.
DONALD J. TRUMP DOES NOT QUALIFY TO BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
Here is what the Amendment says, and I quote section 3…
Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3:
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
So now is the question of why Donald J Trump can run for any office. The Fourteenth Amendment is absolute. It stands by itself, and it is clear. Never mind the four indictments facing him, the disgraced president still barrels on as the front-runner candidate for the 2024 Presidential election.
This article in the Constitution forbids Donald Trump from holding the office of the presidency again because of his conduct before, in and after of the January 6th, 2021, insurrection of the U.S. Capital. He furthermore is not qualified because he came to the aid and comfort of the rebellionists who took part in what he wanted, and that was to stop Mike Pence and Congress from certifying the Presidential election. Trump therefore now is ineligible to serve as president ever again.
So why is disgraced Trump still allowed to run? He is in violation of the 14th Amendment, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, right? Should he not be running? The disqualification clause operates by itself. Any prosecution that Trump has pending that are a result of the four indictments against him are of no consequence of the U.S. Constitution 14th Amendment, Section 3.
But who is to enforce this law which is clearly being violated by Donald Trump? Who made the decision that Donald Trump can run for President?
The officials that decided to put in his nomination decided that he can run. The Secretary of State in the 50 states must make that call. If any of them overturns Trump’s qualification to run, he/she will be challenged in court. This decision to disqualify Trump will now have to go up to the U.S. Supreme Court that is heavily favored as Conservative, but it is my belief that the high court will rule against Trump, and he would be removed from the ballot for the 2024 Presidential election.
The bottom line here is that Donald J. Trump, disgraced President of the United States, is in violation of the 14th Amendment, and it will be up to the Secretaries of State and the Supreme Court to make this egregious error right.
