Former President Donald Trump referred to the states’ use of the 14th Amendment to try and keep him off the ballot in 2024 as a “trick” and the most recent instance of election meddling.

Monday night, Trump asserted that “almost all legal scholars” agreed that utilizing the 14th Amendment to remove the previous president from the presidential vote has “no legal basis or validity.” He made this assertion in a post on Truth Social.

As the former president announced his run for president in 2024 following the midterm elections, the idea of disqualifying Trump under the 14th Amendment has gained popularity.

When Trump’s four legal cases—two at the state level and two at the federal level—were made public, it has drawn increased attention. Conservatives are divided on whether to support the former president in 2024 or hunt for a strong alternative to President Joe Biden due to the legal matters.

Republicans are arguing among themselves on tactics to prevent Trump from winning the White House in 2024.

Former President Donald Trump referred to the states’ use of the 14th Amendment to try and keep him off the ballot in 2024 as a “trick” and the most recent instance of election meddling.

The 14th Amendment prohibits anyone who have taken an oath to protect the Constitution from holding office again if they have “engaged in rebellion” against the United States or “provided aid or comfort” to its adversaries, according to certain conservative legal scholars and critics of the former president.

Trump claimed on social media that the radical left’s communists, fascists, and marxists are just pulling another ruse to rig the election in favor of their choice, whom he called the worst, most corrupt, and most incompetent president America has ever had.

Last month, the legal advocacy group Free Speech for People wrote to the top election authorities in nine different states, including New Hampshire, pleading with them to remove Donald Trump from the ballot.

Republicans in New Hampshire have contacted the state’s secretary of state, David Scanlan, over the disqualification claim, and Scanlan has responded that he is consulting with legal counsel.
