(TargetLiberty.org) – Many are calling for former President Donald Trump to be disqualified from running for the White House in 2024 over allegations that his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack was in violation of his constitutional oath.

Several advocacy groups and some individuals have already started to make attempts to have Trump barred from appearing in state ballots next year, claiming that his actions had violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. According to that section a person who had sworn an oath to the Constitution and had “engaged in insurrection” is not allowed from ever running or holding office again.

This has led to many people pushing secretaries of state to disqualify Trump from appearing on the state’s ballots, claiming that the former President had taken part in an insurrection which hindered his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. In most states, the secretary of state has the power to decide whether or not a candidate is qualified to run for the White House.

Trump is currently leading the 2024 GOP primary race, and he has maintained that he is innocent in all the accusations that relate to his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. He has also claimed that the attempts to use the Fourteenth Amendment against him were another “trick” employed by his opponents to try and stop him from winning the presidential election.

Legal scholars have joined the debate on whether or not the Amendment should be used to block a former President from running again or if the Amendment could be used against Trump. Trump is likely to face challenges to be kicked off the ballot in Colorado, New Hampshire, Michigan and Arizona.
