- Former Labor Secretary for Bill Clinton Robert Reich said states should refuse to place Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential ballot due to his alleged “treason.”
- Reich made the comments in an op-ed published Monday in The Guardian. Reich argues that Trump is guilty of treason under the 14th amendment because of his claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him. The 14th amendment prohibits anyone guilty of insurrection against the United States from serving in public office.
- “Secretaries of state – who in most cases are in charge of deciding who gets on the ballot – must refuse to place Donald Trump’s name on the 2024 ballot, based on the clear meaning of section three of the 14th amendment to the US constitution,” Reich wrote.
