Former President Donald Trump responded to a Michigan Supreme Court ruling on Wednesday after justices refused to remove him from the state’s 2024 presidential and primary ballots.
Trump sang the state high court’s praises for having “strongly and rightfully” rejected a bid to remove him under the 14th Amendment’s “insurrection” clause.
“The Michigan Supreme Court has strongly and rightfully denied the Desperate Democrat attempt to take the leading Candidate in the 2024 Presidential Election, me, off the ballot in the Great State of Michigan,” President Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform.
“This pathetic gambit to rig the Election has failed all across the Country, including in States that have historically leaned heavily toward the Democrats. Colorado is the only State to have fallen prey to the scheme,” the post continued. “That 4-3 Colorado Supreme Court decision, which they themselves stayed, thus keeping me on the ballot as we go up to the U.S. Supreme Court, is being ridiculed and mocked all over the World.
