Indian-American Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy urges fellow contenders to withdraw from Maine and Colorado ballots. These states disqualified Trump from the 2024 White House race due to his role in the Capitol attack, citing the 14th Amendment's insurrection clause. Ramaswamy seeks to challenge this by boycotting these states' elections, calling on others to join.

The 77-year-old former president faces legal hurdles but remains the frontrunner among Republican candidates. Ramaswamy opposes what he sees as unconstitutional barring Trump. While he seeks unity, contenders like Nikki Haley, Chris Christie, and Ron DeSantis resist efforts to prevent Trump's participation.

Ramaswamy criticizes the silence of fellow candidates on the issue, considering it potentially complicit in unconstitutional actions. Trump denies wrongdoing in the Capitol insurrection and views 14th Amendment lawsuits as legal abuse. He's indicted federally and state-wise for attempting to overturn the 2020 election results but pleads not guilty.
