Throughout history, the topic of politics has divided more people than any other subject. No more so than when Donald Trump took over as President of the United States of America. This was the first time in America’s history, that someone who wasn’t typically a politician, immediately entered the race, and won the presidency. In those four years, passions were extremely high and both sides were in a seemingly uncontrollable social battle with one another.

On January 6 during the insurrection, it was a somewhat fitting ending to a controversial period. But it is the insurrection on January 6 that has now led Colorado to use the 14th amendment and officially remove Donald Trump from their presidential ballot sheet. Now, it could be a matter of time before Ohio follows suit. Breaking down the 14th amendment, the former president may have a struggle with other states:

What Is The 14th Amendment?

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.

Does The 14th Amendment Affect Trump?

As AP News has pointed out, Trump's Lawyers are confident this rule doesn't apply to him:

Even if it did, they’ve argued the Jan. 6 attack wasn’t an insurrection — it was more of a riot. And even if it was an insurrection, Trump didn’t “engage” in it — all he did was exercise his rights to free speech under the First Amendment.

Will Trump Run For President In 2024?

Ultimately the Supreme Court must vote 2/3 majority on whether or not the 14th Amendment would apply to Trump. If they vote in favor, it wouldn't just be Colorado, but the entire country and his presidential campaign hopes would be gone.
