BREAKING: Biden backs Colorado Supreme Court claims that Trump 'supported an insurrection'

"But he certainly supported an insurrection. There’s no question about it, none, zero."

Speaking from Milwaukee on Wednesday morning, Joe Biden said that 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump "certainly supported an insurrection" after the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Trump was disqualified from appearing on the state’s primary ballot due to violations of the 14th Amendment.

Responding to reporters outside of Air Force One, Biden said that he wouldn’t specifically comment on the court case.

When asked whether Trump was an insurrectionist, Biden said, "well I think certain things are self-evident."

"We saw it all, and whether the 14th Amendment applies I’ll let the court make that decision. But he certainly supported an insurrection. There’s no question about it, none, zero. And he seems to be doubling down on about everything."

The Colorado Supreme ruled 4-3 that Trump should be disqualified from the primary ballot on Tuesday evening. 

An advance sheet headnote on the decision from the state Supreme Court states that "President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution," and that since "he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Colorado Secretary of State to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot." 

It goes on to note that the court will stay its ruling until Jan. 4, 2024, "subject to any further appellate proceedings."

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
