Trump Dismantles Democrat Argument to Have Him Disqualified

( — As the fall season of 2022 draws nearer, the United States remains a year and a half away from the 2024 presidential election. Despite this, in these trying and tumultuous times in domestic and global American politics, many are heavily focused on the presidential battle for power. Since taking office in January 2021, President Joe Biden has overseen an unstable and problematic period in American affairs. This has resulted in Biden being viewed as unpopular and incompetent, with a recent poll showing the president with a 61% disapproval rating.

Biden’s vulnerability is a worrying factor for Democrats hopeful of keeping control of the nation’s executive branch in 2024. In the Republican field, former President Donald Trump boasts a substantial double digit lead over his nearest challenger, Ron Desantis. Despite facing four criminal allegations and an endless barrage of overwhelmingly negative media coverage, Trump remains poised to become the Republican presidential nominee in 2024 and is the undisputed frontrunner in the crowded field of candidates. As the election draws nearer and all signs point to a Trump nomination, political opponents on both the left and the right seek to stop him at all costs. In a recent development, opponents have broached the idea of using the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution’s “disqualification” clause as a means to prevent Trump from seeking office and bar him from the presidency. The amendment was put in place in the aftermath of the American Civil War as a preventative measure against ex-confederate leaders holding political power. Legal experts have warned of the dubious nature of the claim and the dangerous political precedent it would set if actually utilized.

In a Truth Social post in early September, Trump made the claim that the argument had no legal basis and dismissed the idea. He then attacked Biden, calling him incompetent, and accused opponents of initiating a political witch hunt against him.
