Who is eligible to run for President

"The Colorado Supreme Court Tells Trump No"

"The Colorado courts, is that they believe Trump is barred from appearing on ballots for president in Colorado under the 14th Amendment. Section C of the 14th Amendment prohibits a public officer from holding office again if they engage in insurrection after taking an oath to uphold the Constitution." - Joyce Vance in Civil Discourse

What exactly does the U.S. Constitution say about who is eligible to run President? What is the Fourteenth Amendment Section C say? Check this infographic.

What does the constitution say about who is eligible to run for President

Constitutional requirements for presidential candidates

Candidates for president of the United States must meet basic requirements. The U.S. Constitution states that the president must:
Be a natural-born citizen of the United States
Be at least 35 years old
Have been a resident of the United States for 14 years

Anyone who meets these requirements can declare their candidacy for president. Once a candidate raises or spends more than $5,000 for their campaign, they must register with the Federal Election Commission. That includes naming a principal campaign committee to raise and spend campaign funds. - USA.gov

Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3 - Disqualification Clause

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. - Constitution Annotated

Prohibit those who engage in insurrection after taking an oath to uphold the Constitution

"The Colorado Supreme Court took a step that may give us a preview of what a Trump loss in 2024 could look like. They removed him from the ballot in that state for next year’s election. Their reason, one we’ve discussed here as the case worked its way through the Colorado courts, is that they believe Trump is barred from appearing on ballots for president in Colorado under the 14th Amendment. Section C of the 14th Amendment prohibits a public officer from holding office again if they engage in insurrection after taking an oath to uphold the Constitution.

Review the case and the issues, here is our layout in the trial court in Colorado, and here we discussed that court’s decision as the case made its way to Colorado’s highest court. Today’s was 4-3, a narrow split among Colorado Justices, that Trump will undoubtedly use to inflame passions." - Civil Discourse

TakeAway: No one is above the law in America. Especially those who engage in insurrection after taking an oath to uphold the Constitution.
