GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has said that he will not be participating in the Colorado state primary after former President Donald Trump was barred from the state ballot by a state Supreme Court ruling on Tuesday.

In a lengthy post on X, Ramaswamy condemned the riling, calling it an “actual attack on democracy.”

“Having tried every trick in the book to eliminate President Trump from running in this election, the bipartisan Establishment is now deploying a new tactic to bar him from ever holding office again: the 14th Amendment,” he wrote, adding, “I pledge to *withdraw* from the Colorado GOP primary unless Trump is also allowed to be on the state’s ballot.”

“Today’s decision is the latest election interference tactic to silence political opponents and swing the election for whatever puppet the Democrats put up this time by depriving Americans of the right to vote for their candidate of choice,” the biotech executive added.

Outlining the history behind the 14th Amendment, Ramaswamy went further to point out that it was put in place in order to stop former Confederate military and political leaders, who “had clearly taken part in a rebellion against the United States,” from holding high federal or state office.”

According to him, the move to get Trump booted off Colorado’s primary ballot is “absurd,” as Trump’s speech in 2020 cannot be compared to rebellion against the United States.

“The Framers of the 14th Amendment would be appalled to see this narrow provision—intended to bar former U.S. officials who switched to the Confederacy from seeking public office—being weaponized by a sitting President and his political allies to prevent a former President from seeking reelection. Our country is becoming unrecognizable to our Founding Fathers,” the tweet concluded.

Ramaswamy also requested the same show of solidarity from other candidates, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Haley and DeSantis have also condemned the ruling in statements, with DeSantis demanding that the United States Supreme Court reverse the decision.

“The Left invokes ‘democracy’ to justify its use of power, even if it means abusing judicial power to remove a candidate from the ballot based on spurious legal grounds,” the Florida governor said in a statement.

Haley, on her end, called for the decision to be left to voters, as she said she will beat Trump “fair and square” without court decisions removing him from primaries.

Surprisingly, Christie, whose candidacy is built on constant attacks against Trump, also derided the ruling during a town hall event in New Hampshire on Tuesday night. “I don’t think a court should exclude somebody from running for president without there being a trial and evidence that’s accepted by a jury that they did participate in insurrection,” he stated.

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. also weighed in, saying that Americans “should be troubled by the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to remove President Trump from the ballot.”

One person who is wholeheartedly supportive of the Court’s decision is President Joe Biden, who said, when asked about his thoughts on the ruling, that Trump’s guilt on the accusations of insurrection is “self-evident.”
