As NBN reports, this is stated in the material from CNN.

As you know, earlier the Supreme Court of Colorado, based on the third paragraph of the 14th amendment to the US Constitution, prohibited Trump from participating in elections in this state. This amendment prohibits those who have been involved in “insurrection or rebellion” from being elected to office. But the US Supreme Court overturned this decision.

According to the court, Donald Trump violated the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, according to which insurrectionists cannot occupy high positions. Donald Trump was accused of violating this amendment in the case of the storming of the Capitol in January 2021.  

As a result, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously, overturning the Colorado Supreme Court's ruling that Trump could not run for president again. Most judges have held that states cannot exclude any federal official from voting, especially the president, without Congress first passing the law.

Donald Trump himself has argued that efforts to block him from running would result in the country will experience chaos and disorder if they are successful. In addition, the former US president denied that he was a participant in the uprising and argued that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution does not apply to the office of the president.

Recall that Trump previously said that Biden wants to give Ukraine to Putin.
