Under the 14th Amendment’s Section 3 of the United States Constitution, it decrees that any individual who took an oath of office and has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion of the same” stands as barred from holding office at state or federal levels.

Furthermore, this segment of the Constitution also cites those who have “given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof” as barred from holding the aforementioned offices.

Due to the involvement that former President Trump had in the January 6 riots, dozens of House Democrats have submitted legislation to prohibit Trump’s 2024 presidential run under the rules laid out in the 14th Amendment.

A doomed presidential run?

Since Donald Trump announced his decision to run for president in the upcoming 2024 election, he’s endured negative press and backlash over the following situations:

  • His decision to dine with Holocaust deniers Nick Fuentes and Kanye West
  • His call to “terminate” the Constitution
  • His demand for Kari Lake to be “installed” as Arizona’s governor, despite Lake narrowly losing this election
  • His release of horribly photoshopped NFT trading cards for $99 each as Americans face historic economic hardships

On top of this, Trump is losing in GOP primary polls and betting markets to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. This latest move by Democrats in the House of Representatives only adds to Trump’s woes.
