When donald trump announced its political aspirations for 2024, the ‘Move On’ campaign launched a call for all those who were against their wishes to sign a petition asking government officials to disqualify the former president from running in the 2024 presidential elections for violating the Constitution.
Seven months after its creation, the petition has more than 125 thousand signaturesas demonstrated by the official page, who hopes to get 200,000 signatures.
According to the petition, Trump’s actions during and after the storming the capitol violate the Fourteenth Amendment, even mentioning the article 3 which says that any person who “participates in an insurrection or rebellion” after taking an oath before Congress must be disqualified from running for office.
“Donald Trump and his associates planned, promoted and paid for a criminal conspiracy which became the January 6 insurrection. We still have to fight back with force so that Trump is held accountable for his actions to damage our democracy, actions that continue today and that are focused on laying the foundations of his next coup to place him in the White House in 2024, regardless of the will of the voters,” the petition read.
The people who sign the petition have the opportunity to express their opinion and all agree that Trump violated the Constitution and they do not want a person with such a record to rule the country again.
“Trump has violated the Constitution. Either we are a nation of laws that believes in the Constitution or we are not. This is our chance to say who we are,” wrote one user.
Another one believes that one thing is “peaceful demonstration and another to destroy the capital and looking for people to do harm, in addition to destroying their offices, is quite another. They should stop him from running for any government office.”
Nevertheless, Trump rejects these accusations and affirms that he is the victim of a witch hunt.
The candidate for the White House not only faces more than 125 thousand signatures so that he does not appear in the next elections, but at this moment it faces two serious problems.
The first is the indictment of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records as a result of an allegation related to a payment he “secretly” made to her in 2016 to prevent her from discussing her affair with the porn model Stormy Daniels.
A month after said accusation, the Department of Justice charged him criminally in connection with the discovery of hundreds of classified documents that they were taken to his Mar-a-Lago home after he left the White House and that they remained there even after White House officials National Archives issue a subpoena demanding their return and the Justice Department reclaim them as well.
Trump was indicted for willful withholding of national defense secrets in violation of the Espionage Actmaking false statements and an obstruction of justice conspiracy, two people familiar with the matter told The New York Times.
