Biden Campaign on Trump Ruling: We Don’t Care


President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign on Monday took a cavalier approach to the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling that Donald Trump is eligible for Colorado’s presidential primary ballot.

“We don’t really care,” Quentin Fulks, principal deputy campaign manager for Biden, told MSNBC, according to The Hill. “It’s not been the way we’ve been planning to beat Donald Trump.”

In its unanimous decision, the Supreme Court struck down the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling that Trump was ineligible for the state’s primary ballot because of his alleged involvement with the events of Jan. 6, 2021.

The Colorado court used Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which disqualifies from office those who engage in insurrection against the Constitution after taking an oath to support it.

Trump has never been charged with insurrection and denies any responsibility for the events of Jan. 6.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that, “States have no power under the Constitution to enforce Section 3 with respect to federal offices, especially the Presidency.”

“Our focus since day one of launching this campaign has been to defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box,” Fulks said. “And everything we’ve done since the president announced back in April that he’s running for re-election is to build an infrastructure and apparatus to do so.”
