Trump Accuses Biden of Inciting Insurrection in Fiery Response to Colorado Ballot Ban

Former President Donald Trump has come out denying to be an insurrectionist and referred President Joe Biden as one instead, citing several allegations including the unfettered border and anti-fossil fuel policies as his reasoning. He posted on Truth Social, calling out Biden as an “insurrectionist” while asserting that he himself was not an insurrectionist and used the words “peacefully and patriotically” from his Jan. 6 speech to support his claim.

Immediately, the White House did not respond to the request for comment on this matter. Two days after this issue, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Trump will be excluded from the state’s presidential primary ballot, based on a section of the 14th Amendment that prohibits anyone who has carried out an “insurrection” from running for office. This was labeled as a politically motivated decision by Trump, and his attorneys plans to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.

On the other hand, President Biden refused to comment on the Colorado Supreme Court decision but assured reporters that there was “no question” that the former president was, in fact, an insurrectionist. He further stated that the 14th Amendment process is yet to be determined by the court and urged the need to trust them on making the decision.

Former President Trump accused President Biden of being an “insurrectionist” once again on Thursday, citing a more in-depth rationale. This included allegations that Biden allowed millions of unknown people to enter through the “open” border while also starting a war in the Middle East and Ukraine. Moreover, Trump criticized Biden’s anti-fossil fuel policies which he claims are dismantling America’s energy independence and national security.

The ruling from the Colorado Supreme Court was based on a section of the 14th Amendment that bars officials who have engaged in “insurrection or rebellion” from holding office. This unprecedented ruling makes Colorado the first and only state to disqualify a candidate from appearing on a state primary ballot and makes Trump the first candidate in U.S. history to be declared ineligible to run for the White House.

President Trump held a rally near the White House on Jan. 6, 2021, in which he made statements encouraging his supporters to march to the Capitol, where Congress was in the process of certifying the results of the presidential election. The events of that day have been the subject of widespread scrutiny and debate, with President Trump’s political opponents accusing him of inciting an “insurrection.”

These “insurrection” allegations have led to legal efforts by President Trump’s opponents to block him from being listed on ballots in the 2024 presidential race on 14th Amendment grounds, seeking to portray him as the instigator of the Jan. 6 incident. Despite this, President Trump has repeatedly denied calling for violent protests while insisting he meant his remarks about fighting like hell metaphorically.

In conclusion, Former President Donald Trump denied being an insurrectionist as he labeled President Joe Biden as one in a social media post earlier this week. These kind of allegations have also led to the Colorado Supreme Court ruling to block Trump from their presidential primary ballot on 14th Amendment grounds, making him the first candidate in U.S. history to be declared ineligible to run for the White House.
