Trump barred from Colorado primary ballot for role in US Capitol attack

The ruling sets the stage for the Supreme Court, whose 6-3 conservative majority includes three Trump appointees, to consider whether Trump is eligible to serve another term as president. Trump's campaign called the court decision "undemocratic." "The Colorado Supreme Court issued a completely flawed decision tonight and we will swiftly file an appeal to the United States Supreme Court," a spokesperson from the Trump campaign said. Some advocates had hoped the Colorado case would boost the overall disqualification effort and potentially put the issue before the U.S. Supreme Court. Three Colorado Supreme Court justices dissented from Tuesday's ruling.
