The Colorado Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that former US President Donald Trump can’t be on the primary ballot in that US state. The Republican front-runner has vowed to appeal.

The case was brought by Democrat activists arguing that Trump was disqualified from running for the White House again because he engaged in “insurrection” against the US government, citing a section of the 14th Amendment passed after the Civil War in 1865. Democrats have used the term “insurrection” to describe the January 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol, though no one – including Trump – has been charged with that particular crime.

Four judges of the Colorado Supreme Court – all Democrats – agreed that Trump was not eligible to be on the primary ballots in the state, but stayed their ruling until January 4, 2024 pending appeals.

Reacting to the ruling, the Trump campaign called the decision “completely flawed” and a product of “a Soros-funded, left-wing group’s scheme to interfere in an election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden,” according to spokesman Steven Cheung.

“Democrat Party leaders are in a state of paranoia over the growing, dominant lead President Trump has amassed in the polls,” said Cheung. “They have lost faith in the failed Biden presidency and are now doing everything they can to stop the American voters from throwing them out of office next November.”

The Trump campaign will appeal to the US Supreme Court and has “full confidence” that it will “quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits,” Cheung added.
