BREAKING: Michigan appeals court rules Trump can remain on 2024 primary ballot

"Who to place on the primary ballot is determined by the political parties and the individual candidates."

A Michigan appeals court ruled on Thursday that Trump can remain on the 2024 Republican presidential primary ballot.

In a unanimous decision, the appeals court wrote, "Who to place on the primary ballot is determined by the political parties and the individual candidates," according to The Messenger.

In regards to Trump being on the 2024 general election ballot, the court said that was still too early to rule on.

Watchdog group Free Speech For People filed the case on behalf of a group of Michigan voters, arguing that Trump was disqualified from running in the state under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

"As the Court of Claims recognized, it would be improper to decide whether to grant a declaration that Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President of the United States at this time," the court wrote, according to ABC News.

"At the moment, the only event about to occur is the presidential primary election. But as explained, whether Trump is disqualified is irrelevant to his placement on that particular ballot. Thus, with respect to the presidential primary election, there is no actual controversy, as the only purported basis for removing Trump from the presidential primary ballot would not be a sufficient basis for removal of Trump's name from that ballot," the court said.

In a statement, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said, "With the Michigan Court of Appeals' affirmation of the Trump campaign's victories in the lower court, the Soros-funded Democrats have once again failed in their desperate attempt to interfere in the election via a bad-faith interpretation of the 14th Amendment. President Trump remains undefeated against these frivolous legal claims and has never been in a stronger position to win next year's election."

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
