Donald Trump is pushing back against efforts to keep him off the 2024 ballot in some states.

On Monday, Trump’s legal team filed a lawsuit seeking to prevent Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson from refusing to put him on the ballot for the state’s 2024 presidential primary and general elections.

The Hill reports that the lawsuit asks the court to affirm that Benson (D) lacks the authority to decide whether Trump can be disqualified from the ballot under an interpretation of the 14th Amendment. The lawsuit asks the court to enter an injunction stopping her from barring Trump from the ballot.

The suit cites several national and state polls where Trump is the leading Republican candidate for the upcoming presidential election.

“Despite President Trump’s tremendous popularity, there are people who want to deny Michigan voters the opportunity to express their choice by voting for him,” the lawsuit said.

Trump’s attorneys said court intervention is necessary so Trump can “ensure he is included” on the upcoming ballots.

“There is an actual controversy, the outcome of which will determine how President Trump and his campaign allocate their resources both in Michigan and around the country,” the lawsuit said.

Polling from August shows Biden and Trump neck and neck in Michigan, each earning 44 percent support from voters.

  1. Any state who tries to take ANY candidate off ballot or interfering with election and voters right to see full slate. Those states must LOSE electorals. RED STATES UNITE, TAKE ALL DEMOCRATIC ( DOMESTIC ENEMY ) candidates off ballot. EXPEL ALL INCUMBENT DEMOCRATS.

    • No need to sue just vote for Trump by write-in if he is not on ballot. We could make history wining by write-in votes! Just imagine that!!

  2. The money should come out of the globalist puppet, god worshipiing, demonrat criminal party funds not out of hard working, tax paying Americans funds . globalist puppet, god worshiping, demonrat criminaol party commit all the crimes and fraud they can to spend and waste and steal hard working, tax paying Americans funds .

  3. To deny Trump a place on the ballot seems to violate Article XV of the Bill of Rights. This is another act similar to the CIA deciding against Trump as being of questionable character. Sort of reminds you of leadership like Putin.
