Subject to appeal of course. Might set a precedent tho.

This on the day Trump said he'd ask Europe to "pay back" 200 billion dollars given by the US to help Ukraine.

Utterly bonkers.

Or what I wonder? He's going to buy another gold course?

Or even a golf course.

^At that price you were probably right the first time.

It will be overturned, would be a dangerous precident if it wasnt and could possible reignite the civil war.

Hilariously, Ramaswamy has promised to withdraw from the Colorado primary unless this is reversed. And no one moved :-)

Civil war? Give your head a shake. We need to stop overdramatising this 

He's a bigger nutter than Putin, well nearly I should say. Whenever there's going to be news on tv about him I just turn off right away.

It's a mystery to me why this hasn't happened before. A corrupt property magnate playing the victim and winning. 

Its an embarrassment to just hear him speak. Not seen his wife trailing around with him for some time now? or even hear of her.

well done Colorado...hopefully the ban extends - this loon in the White House?? Why can't they elect someone sensible?

why cant we?

So many good Republicans - none of them remotely likely to succeed 

Trump is not actually all that popular in the USA... he has a small but extremely loyal following who are willing to kill and terrorise in his name but most americans who vote do not vote for trump

"They're not trying to silence me they're trying to silence you"

Sheer shameless demagoguery

Question Author

Well, plainly he is popular.

But I wish we'd  stop talking up the violence and threats behind him. We keep hearing about this but I haven't seen any evidence of it. We shouldn't terrorise ourselves 

14th amendment section 3...

"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability."

seems pretty clear to me. trump did "engage in insurrection or rebellion" against the US constitution and gave aid and comfort to its enemies. slam dunk as they say. 

It will be decided the the supreme court, ie the one he loaded with sympathetic Republicans for just this sort of eventuality.

Let's not celebrate just yet.

Trump said ( only I noticed)  Ukraine they speak Russian right so they are Russian.

giives you some idea of what will happen if he regains power. Putin they say said in return that he will make Trump the richest man in the world

such people rule us

The jurists ( they what know) dont know

The colorado supreme court has said he ccant stand as a republican on the ticket BUT they cd 'write in'. The whole system is different

I am not sure if the High Court London wd  say that boris cdnt stand on a Tory ticket.

As for the Fed supreme court they  are mostly originalists who take it from - what did the framers of the carnstitution think in 1791 ?

This is so  alien to brits that we cant conceive of interpreting the 1604 Charities Act ( now superceded but anyway) in the way the jacobeans framed it

If the originalists have their way then.... yes the  president ( I am president I can do anything right ?)does NOT give wide immunity. Geo Washington and his cohorts limited the presidents immunity compared to the old colonial governor, the King of England.

all this reads like the usual old crazy AB rubbish

You read it here first

Peter, Boris did not commit treason or incite insurrection...a huge difference to the Frump's case. Colorado are spot on and may their decision be uptaken by the other 49 States....

Are our own Trump loyalists in conference, mulling maybe?
