( – On Saturday, former President Donald Trump stated during his Cedar Rapids, Iowa campaign rally that the alleged attempts to have him removed from the election ballot have made him “more popular” than he had been in his two previous presidential campaigns.

During his Commit to Caucus event, Trump told his crowd of supporters that the attempt to use the 14th Amendment to block him from being on the ballot had backfired.

The cases brought against Trump were initiated by advocacy groups that had been looking to bar Trump from participating in the 2024 presidential race. Many of these cases, including the ones in Minnesota, Colorado, and Michigan, have also ended up going to court. According to those pushing forward these cases, Trump has allegedly violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment through his actions on Jan. 6, 2021, during the Capitol attack. The 14th Amendment explicitly states that no one who had previously “engaged in insurrection” is allowed to hold office again.

All the cases against Trump thus far have been unsuccessful and he has been allowed to stay on the ballot in three states.

Trump argued that these attempts to keep him off the ballot were only because they did not want to run against him, and that this was also the reason why they had indicted him four times this year. The former President seems to be using the attempts as fuel to further bolster his 2024 campaign against Joe Biden.
