A Cook County judge has disqualified Donald Trump from the Illinois Republican primary ballots,

citing his alleged involvement in the January 6 Capitol riots.

This makes Illinois the third state, after Colorado and Maine, to attempt to remove Trump from ballots.

The decision, based on the anti-insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment, follows similar challenges in other states.

Despite Trump's legal team's appeal, the ruling stands, barring him from both the primary and general election ballots.

The dispute centers on whether the events of January 6 constitute an insurrection.

Trump's removal from the ballot raises questions about the criteria for disqualifying candidates based on their actions.
