WASHINGTON — In an unprecedented case that could determine the fate of former President Donald Trump’s appearance on the Colorado Republican primary ballot, oral arguments before the Supreme Court lasted over two hours on Thursday.
At the center is whether the Colorado Supreme Court was justified in determining the former president ineligible.
Outside the Court, a handful of protesters gathered with homemade signs and a bevy of opinions about how the case should be decided.
“It’s not fair what’s being done and things need to change,” said Trump supporter Rylee Walk.
Others are concerned with the importance of upholding Section 3 of the 14th Amendment and whether it applies to the presidency.
“If you have taken an oath to the Constitution to uphold the Constitution, and then you engage in an insurrection or try to overthrow the U.S. government,” Jennifer Hobbs said. “Then you are disqualified from running for office.”
