The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal from Donald Trump after judges in Colorado ruled the former president is ineligible to appear on the state’s primary ballot. The justices will decide whether Trump violated the insurrectionist clause of the U.S. Constitution for his role in the January 6 insurrection. Oral arguments will be held on February 8.

Meanwhile, President Biden has denounced Trump as a threat to democracy. In his first campaign speech of 2024, Biden spoke in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, on the eve of the third anniversary of the January 6 insurrection.

President Joe Biden: “Donald Trump’s campaign is about him, not America, not you. Donald Trump’s campaign is obsessed with the past, not the future. He’s willing to sacrifice our democracy, put himself in power.”

Biden is heading to Charleston, South Carolina, today to speak at the Mother Emanuel AME Church, where the white supremacist Dylann Roof shot dead nine Black parishioners in 2015.
