Undemocratic: Banning President Trump from the 2020 Ballot

Craig Huey Donald Trump, Election, Government, Congress, and Politics 6 Comments

It’s ridiculous. But they are dead serious…

17 states are trying to take President Trump off their 2020 presidential ballot.

Why?

Politics. Pure and simple.

It’s because Trump’s enemies are demanding he release his income tax returns to the public.

There is no law that requires presidential candidates – or sitting presidents for that matter – to release their tax returns to the public.

Although it’s been common practice since the 1970s, candidate Donald Trump broke the tradition in 2016 by claiming he couldn’t release his returns because they were being audited by the IRS.

According to the U.S. Constitution, the requirements for presidential candidates are:

  • Must be a natural-born citizen of the United States
  • Must have been a resident of the U.S. for 14 years
  • Must be 35 years of age or older

That’s it. Congress can’t add to the constitutional criteria through federal legislation.

The only way presidential candidates can be forced to release their tax returns is through a constitutional amendment to Article II … which would require ratification by three-fourths – currently 38 – of the state legislatures.

Bills to exclude President Trump from the 2020 ballot have passed the state senate in California, Hawaii, Illinois and Washington.

These Blue States are out of line. They complain about the Russians – and Donald Trump – attacking our democracy…

But these Democrat-controlled state legislatures are the real attackers and defilers of our democracy … our Constitution … and the will of the American people.

Voters knew in 2016 that Trump wasn’t going to release his tax returns … and enough voted for him anyway to elect his president.

Whether you like President Trump or not, this kind of political retaliation is wrong.

If you agree, watch for our upcoming petition to let your elected state representatives know what you think.

  1. I can’t believe these how Democrats are acting. I have never seen a more irresponsible group of people in my life. They are like a bunch of school children on the playground, taunting and teasing one child just because they’re different. Or do things differently then they do. This is so ridiculous. The republicans need to back Up President Trump 100% weather they like him or not. This is not right how they are treating him. It makes me so mad I’ve stop watching the News.

    1. I can’t stand watching the news either. I used to watch FOX NEWS but, I’m tired of hearing what the left thinks – I don’t give a hoot what the left thinks. Then there’s Juan Williams, Shepherd Smith and Chris Wallace – all liberals!
      Watch One America News Network, no liberal BS, just news.

  2. I’m watching the do or die end game for the american communist pigs in our government making a last ditch effort to change our country forever. BO wanted to do it with everything he did. I think first we better get rid of the RINO’s by voting them out in their states. Trump should focus on replacing the RINO’s in the next election with conservative republican candidates. When the cameras go off we have a one party system I think. Voters on our side are increasingly fighting mad

  3. Now they’re trying to get rid of the electoral college & force all the electoral votes to go to who wins the popular vote in each State! They can’t win, so they change the rules, cheat, & steal the votes by ballot harvesting, stuffing, forging, busing illegals & buying the votes of the homeless people!
