Vivek Ramaswamy's gutsy plan to respond to Trump ballot removal

The Colorado Supreme Court has made an unprecedented and potentially nation-changing move.

The court removed former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 presidential ballot on Tuesday after ruling that he engaged in an insurrection with his actions on January 6, 2021.

The justices cited Section Three of the 14th Amendment as their reasoning.

Vivek Ramaswamy isn’t having it.

“They have just tried to bar President Trump from the Colorado ballot using an unconstitutional maneuver that is a bastardization of the 14th Amendment to our U.S. Constitution,” Ramaswamy said.

“This was a provision Section Three that was designed to bar Confederate members, people who switched to the Confederacy, from actually being able to serve. That’s very different than what’s at issue here,” he continued.

He called the move “a hollowed out husk of what the country was built on” before withdrawing his own name from the Colorado GOP Primary ballot — until Trump’s name is restored.

“I demand that Ron DeSantis and Chris Christie and Nikki Haley do the same thing or else these Republicans are simply complicit in this unconstitutional attack on the way we conduct our constitutional republic,” Ramaswamy added.

Dave Rubin believes Vivek has made his political move.

“That’s what Vivek is very good about. Like, how do you control media? How do you get the social media people behind you?” Rubin says, adding, “Who knows if Vivek was even going to make it to the Colorado primary?”

The Colorado Republican Party responded to Vivek in a tweet on X.

“You won’t have to because we will withdraw from the primary as a party and convert to a pure caucus system if this is allowed to stand,” they wrote.
