The Colorado Supreme Court judges that former President Donald Trump is ineligible to run in the 2024 presidential election in the state because of his role in the January 2021 storming of the Capitol.

The state Supreme Court upheld a November trial ruling finding that he did engage in rebellion on January 6, 2021, during the storming of the Capitol.

On the other hand, she considered that the 14th amendment of the Constitution, invoked to claim her ineligibility, did indeed apply to a president.

In issuing its ruling Tuesday, however, the Colorado Supreme Court suspended the decision until January 4, in the event of an appeal to the United States Supreme Court before then.

Donald Trump's spokesperson has already expressed his intention to go to the Federal Supreme Court, denouncing this judgment as undemocratic.

This ruling makes Donald Trump the first presidential candidate in American history to be ineligible for election federal depending on the constitution of the country which blocks access to this position to people who have undertaken acts of rebellion or insurrection.

Trump will not be eligible for election in the Republican primary on March 5, 2024, but his absence could have repercussions on the general election on November 5.

However, some U.S. election experts view Colorado as solidly Democratic, meaning Joe Biden would win the state regardless of Trump's fate.

According to what the New York Times reports, the Colorado Supreme Court becomes the first instance to approve the disqualification of the ex-president, an argument that has been regularly mentioned.

Similar prosecutions took place in other states, such as New Hampshire or Minnesota, but were dismissed on grounds procedural.
