Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick Threatens to Remove Biden from Ballot Following Colorado’s Exclusion of Trump


Dan Patrick, who is Lt. Governor of Texas and is known for stirring things up, just oversaw the impeachment of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, which caused a lot of controversy. What now? Not being able to vote for Donald Trump in Colorado makes him mad.

What should the Lt. Gov. do? Tell Fox News that he believes President Joe Biden should not be on the ballot in Texas.

Patrick said those things on Fox News and told host Laura Ingraham that Biden’s tactics on the border made them okay.

“Joe Biden should not be running for office in Texas because he has let eight million people cross the border while he has been president, causing problems in our state,” Patrick said. “But we believe in democracy in Texas.”

His words came just a few hours after the Colorado Supreme Court said that Trump could be taken off the 2024 ticket. The Court said Trump broke Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by taking part in the riot on January 6. The Supreme Court said that Trump took part in an uprising, which means he can’t run for president again.

The Court said that Trump “then stood back and let the fighting happen, even though he had the power and ability to stop it (with his words or by calling in the military), confirming that this violence was what he meant.”

Trump and his campaign said right away that they would be appealing the ruling.

“We have full faith that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits,” Steven Cheung, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, said in a statement.

Biden also doesn’t have many fans among Democrats in Texas or people who support immigration. Supporters say that Biden is just carrying on many of Trump’s policies and, at best, making things worse for foreigners. Democrats in Texas are angry and frustrated with the President’s border policies. They say the President doesn’t care about the needs of our state and would rather pass social policies that are easy for voters to support instead.

Patrick and most of the Trump-supporting Texas GOP, on the other hand, seem to like harsher means than writing angry letters to the White House.

Texas just passed a law this week that lets state judges deport people who cross the U.S.-Mexico border without papers. The controversial law sparked fights within the Texas GOP between the more extreme “MAGA” group and the more moderate “traditional GOP” group. These fights have dominated state politics all through 2023.
