The Trump campaign has already said it will appeal the “completely flawed” decision – dozens of lawsuits have been filed nationally to disqualify the former president from running again under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

The court ruled that as a result, he cannot appear on the state’s ballot for the 2024 Republican Primary.

The ruling was handed down in a 4-3 decision by judges who have all been appointed by Democratic governors.

But the ruling will remain on hold until January 4 pending an appeal, which Trump is expected to make to the US Supreme Court.

States have been litigating Trump’s eligibility since his association with the Capitol protests on January 6, 2021.

Trump shared tweets during the riot that encouraged protesters to demonstrate while claiming Democrats stole the election results.

“We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits.”
