JUST SO WE HAVE THE CORRECT CONTEXT.....
♦️The President of the United States IS NOT "an elector" OR "an Officer of the United States".
♦️You will find, under the Appointments Clause of the Constitution, the principal officers of the U.S., such as federal judges, ambassadors, and "public Ministers" (Cabinet members etc.) are APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT (with the advice and consent of the Senate).
♦️Therefore you have the definition of "officer" found in the 14th Amendment AND the context as stated in the Article 2 Section 2 Clause 2 of the Appointments Clause, how that term is used....
📜The 14th Amendment of the US Constitution -
Section 3. "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as AN OFFICER OF THE UNITED STATES, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability." 🇺🇸
[as ratified 7/9/1868]
♦️The Supreme Court of the United States in the 2010 case of Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board affirmed by stating that "The people do not vote for the 'Officers of the United States'".
---Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, 561 U.S. 477 (2010)
♦️IN CONCLUSION: Since the President of the United States is elected by the people, the president is therefore NOT "an Officer of the United States".
The Colorado STATE COURT decision to keep Trump off the ballot MUST be reversed.
