Trump Gets Last Laugh After Attempt To Remove Him From Ballot

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Former President and current 2024 front-runner Donald Trump, was victorious in the Republican primary in Colorado following the Supreme Court’s ruling against the left-wing attempt to remove him from the ballot.

The triumph represents another ignominious setback for Jena Griswold, the Democratic Secretary of State of Colorado, who spearheaded the campaign to remove Trump from the ballot. “It is alarming that federal candidates can participate in insurrection and not be held accountable for their ability to participate in elections,” Griswold expressed to Politico following the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to overturn the finding of the Colorado court.

Colorado, after receiving a favorable verdict from its Democrat-controlled Supreme Court, became the first state to exclude Trump from the ballot. Subsequently, the Democrat Secretary of State, Shenna Bellows, has excluded Trump from the vote in Maine, while a judge in the Chicago area has recently banned the former president from Illinois’ primary ballot.

Trump’s triumph in Colorado adds to his recent victories on Super Tuesday in Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, Maine, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Virginia.

Reacting to his Super Tuesday primary victories, Trump told Fox News Digital that it is a “great evening,” and that it is his “honor to represent not just the Republican Party but our country in leading it back to health and prosperity.”

“It is a great evening,” Trump told Fox News Digital in an exclusive interview after races were called in his favor in 11 states, and while awaiting race calls and polls closing in others.

“Rarely has politics seen anything quite like this,” he said.

Trump added: “It is my honor to represent not just the Republican Party but our country in leading it back to health and prosperity.

Trump’s immediate response followed the announcement of the results in 11 states.

Subsequently, Trump emerged victorious in California.

Nikki Haley, the former Governor of South Carolina, was victorious in the Vermont primary on Tuesday, marking her second win in the 2024 election cycle. Prior to this, she had also secured a victory in the Washington D.C. primary earlier this week.

However, Trump’s campaign remained undeterred by the defeat.

“President Trump dominated Super Tuesday in convincing fashion in ways that have never been done,” a Trump campaign spokesperson told Fox News Digital after the race was called in Vermont. “There is no doubt— President Trump is the nominee and he will go on to defeat Crooked Joe Biden.”

Trump’s significant Super Tuesday primary victories follow his overwhelming success in the Iowa caucuses, dominating victory in New Hampshire, sweeping of the caucuses in Nevada and the U.S. Virgin Islands, triumphant win in South Carolina surpassing his expectations, and triumph in Michigan.

Over the weekend, Donald Trump emerged victorious in the Republican contests held in Missouri, Idaho, and Michigan. Additionally, on Monday, he also secured a win in North Dakota.

During his Super Tuesday Victory Party at Mar-a-Lago, Trump vehemently criticized President Biden, labeling him as “the most inept president in the entire history of our nation.”

“There has never been anything like what’s happening to our country,” Trump said, pointing to the crisis at the southern border.

During the speech, the former president stated that his main goal is to “unify this country and unify this party.”

“We have a great Republican Party with tremendous talent and we want to have unity and we’re going to have unity and going to happen very quickly,” Trump said. “I have been saying lately, success will bring unity to our country.”

“Our country was coming together,” Trump continued. “Our country was coming together. And now we have a very divided country.”

On November 5, Election Day, according to Trump, is “the single most important day in the history of our country.”

“We’re going to take it and make it like it should be… right now our country is known as a joke,” Trump stated.

Trump thought back on his first term’s accomplishments in foreign affairs, the economy, and energy independence.

According to the former president, several people said his demeanor would “cause wars.”

In reference to his presidency and its effects on the international scene, Trump remarked, “No, my personality is going to keep us out of wars — and that’s what happened. For 20 years they were fighting ISIS. I defeated ISIS in four weeks. We got rid of ISIS 100%.”

Trump stated that there has “never been an administration that had more success in so many different elements.”

“We got the largest tax cuts in history. We have the largest regulation cuts in history. We rebuilt our military,” Trump said.

If elected to a second term, Trump promised to “take back our country.”

“We are going to have the greatest economy ever in the history of our country. We’re going to top what we did. We are going to become an energy center of the world,” he said. “We’re going to pay off debt. We’re going to do things that nobody thought was possible.”

Trump added: “But we’re going to win this election because we have no choice. If we lose the election, we’re not going to have a country.”
