Trump’s Political Turmoil
Donald Trump, is actively pursuing a non-consecutive second term in the upcoming 2024 U.S. presidential election.
Since the beginning of this year, Trump has faced indictments from both state and federal authorities, with allegations spanning business fraud and attempts to overturn the 2020 U.S. presidential election, resulting in a total of 91 felony charges.
Notably, the U.S. Constitution lacks provisions that automatically disqualify individuals, whether suspects or convicted criminals, from running for federal office.
Furthermore, the enforcement of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits convicted insurrectionists from holding public office, necessitates congressional action.
