The Supreme Court is set to consider arguments on former President Donald Trump’s eligibility to run for the 2024 US elections, in light of the Insurrection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. The court is scheduled to convene Thursday at 10 a.m. ET to deliberate on this landmark challenge. This would bring to mind Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, taking us back to Trump’s insurrectionist actions against the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. The hearing is an important one in the history of presidential candidates as it will be the first hearing for someone of this status to be considered under the Insurrection Clause.
