Calling himself `presumptive nominee,' Trump tells Supreme Court to keep him on the ballot

Trump at insurrectionCalling himself the 'presumptive nominee' for president, Donald Trump on Monday asked the Supreme Court to protect the rights of the tens of millions of Americans who want to vote for him.

In a filing days before the nation's top court considers the case for removing him from the Colorado ballot, Trump's lawyers argued that taking him off would be 'anti-democratic', similar to recent actions in Venezuela. His lawyers are appealing the decision by Colorado to disqualify him from running in that state because of an anti-insurrection clause in the Constitution.

'There was no `insurrection,'' Trump's lawyers wrote. 'President Trump did not `incite' anything, and President Trump did not `engage in' anything that constitutes `insurrection.'
