President Donald Trump has been bared by the Supreme Court in Colorado from appearing on the state’s ballots for next year’s election due to his inciting the 2021 U.S. Capitol riot — but paused the decision from taking effect until Jan. 4.

 

“A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the majority wrote in the ruling.

 

The Colorado Supreme Court in that decision said there was significant evidence that showed “that President Trump engaged in insurrection,” disqualifying him from serving as president under a provision in the U.S. Constitution.

 

But the decision said that if Trump seeks a review of the case from the U.S. Supreme Court — which his campaign immediately vowed to do — the pause in the ruling will remain in effect until the federal high court either rejects Trump’s request or rules on the question of his eligibility on the ballot.
