According to Graham, the United States Supreme Court will overrule the disqualification as there is no constitutional basis for keeping Trump’s name off the ballot.
“This Colorado Supreme Court made a political decision. In my view, there is no constitutional basis for the decision they rendered. I think it will be a slam dunk in the Supreme Court. Donald Trump will eventually be on the ballot in Colorado,” he said.
He added, “I think he will win the primary. You’ve got a lot of good choices in the Republican Party. But this ruling in Colorado is chilling to me. And it would set up a politicization of the presidential races. It would be bad for the country.”
The senator also weighed in on Trump’s chances of winning the 2024 presidential election. He expressed worry for Trump’s prospects as he warned against him looking back to 2020 election. However, he believes that putting out his vision of improving the nation’s security and economy will be a sure ticket to him winning.
In his words, “If President Trump puts the vision out, improving security and prosperity for Americans, he will win. If he looks back, I think he will lose. So, at the end of the day, the 2020 election’s over for me. We need to secure the ballot in the 2024 cycle. But Donald Trump’s not the first person to complain about an election.”
Graham’s interview comes after Trump was disqualified from Colorado’s ballot, in a 4-3 majority in the state’s top court. The court had ruled that the GOP front runner is not qulified to hold presidency under the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.
“We conclude that because President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Secretary to list President Trump as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot. Therefore, the Secretary may not list President Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot, nor may she count any write-in votes cast for him,” the opinion on the decision stated.
