Supreme Court Allows Trump to Remain on Colorado Presidential Ballot Despite Insurrection Allegations

In a recent ruling, the United States Supreme Court has unanimously decided that former President Donald Trump is eligible to run for president, overturning a previous state court decision that barred him from the ballot in Colorado due to allegations regarding the January 6th Capitol riot. The ruling comes just before the Super Tuesday elections, where Trump is anticipated to perform strongly. Despite this legal victory, Trump still faces several legal challenges, including upcoming criminal trials and substantial fines from civil cases.
