The Michigan Appeals Court ruled in favor of allowing former President Donald J. Trump to remain on the 2024 presidential primary ballot. The ruling follows legal challenges brought forth by plaintiffs who questioned Trump’s eligibility under the Insurrection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that a Michigan judge dismissed a challenge aimed at preventing former President Donald Trump from appearing on the state’s ballot for the 2024 presidential election.

“The Fourteenth Amendment arguments of plaintiffs present a political question that is nonjusticiable at the present time,” Judge James Robert Redford noted in his ruling.

Judge Redford also tated that under Michigan law, Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson lacks the authority to interfere in a primary election if a political party opts to list a candidate who may not qualify for the office.

“The ultimate decision is made by the respective political party, with the consent of the listed candidate,” the judge said.
