(TheRedWire.com) – GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie noted in a statement that it should not be up to the courts to decide whether or not former President Donald Trump should be reelected to the White House. This statement came after the Colorado Supreme Court determined that Trump could not appear on the state’s ballot.
Christie in his statement argued that it was not up to the court to prevent Trump from being the U.S. president. Instead, he argued that it should be up to U.S. voters to make that decision. Christie pointed out that he did not believe that it was “good” for the country for Trump to not be allowed to be on the ballot.
As he claimed if Trump was blocked from being on the ballot then that would be bad for the country. He added that the other reason he believed that was because this would mean that Trump had incited insurrection, however as he pointed out there has not yet been a trial on this.
The Department of Justice has brought forward charges regarding his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, including stopping the certification of the 2020 election votes by telling his supporters to march on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. That trial is set to begin on March 4, however, Trump is still trying to get this case dismissed claiming that he should be protected from presidential immunity.
On Tuesday night, the Colorado Supreme Court determined that Trump’s alleged role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection should block him from appearing on the primary ballot of the state.
