Democrat Judge Removes Trump From Illinois Ballot

A Democrat Illinois state judge has removed former president and current GOP primary frontrunner Donald Trump from the presidential ballot using the claim that Trump engaged in an insurrection, despite the fact that the former president has not been convicted or even charged with such a crime.

Judge Tracie R. Porter of the State Circuit Court in Cook County, Illinois, stated in her ruling that the State Board of Elections “shall remove Donald J. Trump from the ballot for the General Primary Election on March 19, 2024, or cause any votes cast for him to be suppressed.”

This decision overruled the State Board of Elections’ ruling last month that kept Trump on the ballot.

The Democrat judge stayed the order temporarily, giving Trump the ability to appeal her ruling until Friday, ignoring the fact that early voting has already begun for the state’s presidential primary. She also ignored the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court has already begun hearing the case of Colorado removing Trump from its ballot for the same reason, a case that should be decided soon. It is highly likely that the Supreme Court will rule against the removal of Trump’s name from the ballot, according to the remarks from the justices during the hearing.

All of these decisions removing Trump from the ballot from Democrat judges are based on Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment, which bans former officeholders who “engaged in insurrection” from ever holding public office again. There’s just one major problem with this — the fact that Trump has never been convicted of engaging in an insurrection, nor has he even been charged with doing so.

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign has issued a statement in response to the Illinois’ state judge’s ruling.

“The Soros-funded Democrat front-groups continue to attempt to interfere in the election and deny President Trump his rightful place on the ballot,” the statement read. “Today, an activist Democrat judge in Illinois summarily overruled the state’s board of elections and contradicted earlier decisions from dozens of other state and federal jurisdictions. This is an unconstitutional ruling that we will quickly appeal. In the meantime, President Trump remains on the Illinois ballot, is dominating the polls, and will Make America Great Again!”
