Top Democrat breaks ranks and joins forces with Trump

The Left is nearly always united in its hatred for Donald Trump. Those days could be changing.

Because this top Democrat broke ranks and joined forces with Trump.

If former President Donald Trump is not permitted on the ballot in 2024, the United States will become ungoverned, according to independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Kennedy’s warning came shortly after the Colorado Supreme Court declared on Tuesday that Trump is ineligible to run for president under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, thereby eliminating him from the state’s primary ballot.

The decision, according to Kennedy, is one that “every American should be troubled by.”

“If Trump is kept out of office through judicial fiat rather than being defeated in a fair election, his supporters will never accept the result,” Kennedy said on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“This country will become ungovernable. It’s time to trust the voters. It is up to the people to decide who the best candidate is. Not the courts. The people. That’s Democracy 101.”

Kennedy also expressed optimism that the Colorado Supreme Court will overturn its judgment, stating that the court decision contributes to “the perception that the elites are picking the President by manipulating the legal system.”

This country needs more of this type of bipartisanship.

We can’t pretend that silencing political opponents is what free countries do.

And RFK Jr., thankfully, has put principle over politics.

His resistance to the Colorado Supreme Court’s recent decision comes as he gains support among voters in the 2024 race, creating a challenge to both the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees.

According to a recent study, one in every five people would consider voting for Kennedy in 2024, while one in every four registered voters would support a rematch between President Joe Biden and Trump.

The independent presidential contender is not the only one to criticize the court’s ruling, with Republican Vivek Ramaswamy calling it “an *actual* attack on democracy.”

He has committed to withdraw from the Colorado primary ballot if Trump’s name is not included on it, and he has asked his Republican colleagues to do the same.

Other Republican contenders, including former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, have not pledged to withdraw in response to Ramaswamy’s commitment, though they have opposed the Colorado court’s decision.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) informed Newsmax that he had no plans to withdraw his name from the Colorado ballot.

“I think the case will get overturned by the Supreme Court, but I qualified for all the ballots, I’m competing in all the states, and I am going to accumulate the delegates necessary,” DeSantis said in an interview.

“That’s the whole name of the game in this situation.”
