Judge Blocks California’s Attempt to Keep President Trump Off 2020 Ballot

President Donald Trump declared victory Wednesday after a judge blocked a California law keeping his name off the state’s ballot ahead of the 2020 election.

Judge Morrison England Jr. officially blocked the law Tuesday afternoon, giving the president a major victory pending a California appeal. The law, passed in July, would have required any candidate running for president to give the IRS tax forms for the past five years.

“I won the right to be a presidential candidate in California, in a major Court decision handed down yesterday. It was filed against me by the Radical Left Governor of that State to tremendous Media hoopla. The VICTORY, however, was barely covered by the Fake News. No surprise!” Trump told his Twitter followers.

Democrats and other activists have long-criticised the president’s decision not to release his tax returns, so the law was not a surprise.

“These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement in July.

England appeared to sympathize with lawmakers’ intent. “[W]hile this Court understands and empathizes with the motivations that prompted California,” he said in his decision, “the Act’s provisions likely violate the Constitution and the laws of the United States.”

England put a temporary hold on the law in September.

The victory could be a Pyrrhic one for Trump as California Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced plans Tuesday night to appeal the decision — the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals will likely preside over the appeal process. England was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2002.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
