A federal judge just ruled ‘yes’ and handed a stunning victory to President Trump. Democrats are furious, but patriotic Americans are cheering.
“I won the right to be a presidential candidate in California, in a major Court decision handed down yesterday,” tweeted Trump, referring to a California bill that added an unconstitutional requirement to appear on the ballot.
Trump continued: “It was filed against me by the Radical Left Governor of that State to tremendous Media hoopla. The VICTORY, however, was barely covered by the Fake News. No surprise!”
The bill mandated that every presidential candidate seeking to appear on the 2020 primary ballot must produce tax returns from the past five years in order to qualify — which is “dangerous precedent” said the judge.
U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. elaborated by saying that “allowing the controlling party in any state’s legislature to add substantive requirements as a precondition to qualifying for the state’s presidential primary ballot, should concern all candidates alike.”
It was also abundantly clear that Democrats were attempting to target Trump himself, since they’ve been after his tax returns since before he became president. But the rule of law has halted yet another anti-Trump agenda.
