    Supreme Court to rule if Trump can run for president – By BBC News Staff (BBC News) / Jan 6, 2024

    The US Supreme Court says it will hear a historic case to determine whether Donald Trump can run for president.

    The justices agreed to take up Mr Trump’s appeal against a decision by Colorado to remove him from the 2024 ballot in that state.

    The case will be heard in February and the ruling will apply nationwide.
