BREAKING: This State Passes LAW To Keep Trump OFF 2020 Ballot

They just did the unthinkable…

More proof of the Democrats win at any cost shenanigans has happened as California Gov. Gavin Newsom has essentially removed President Donald Trump from the election ballots.

The governor of the blue state signed a law on Tuesday that will not allow any candidate to appear on the ballot unless they show their tax returns.

Now it should be noted that this is really a symbolic gesture as the chances of the law surviving a court fight is virtually nonexistent.

In fact, it is likely so Unconstitutional that the vote from the Supreme Court, if it gets that far, could be unanimous in the president’s favor.

But be that as it may, the governor wanted to virtue signal, and virtue signal he did with this new law, Politico reported.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom embraced a politically explosive and legally dubious attempt to pry loose President Donald Trump’s tax returns on Tuesday, signing legislation that would boot Trump from California primary ballots if he doesn’t make his filings public.

For Democrats who wield absolute control over Sacramento, the measure offered a chance to directly confront a president who is deeply unpopular among most California voters — and for Newsom to escalate his long-standing feud with the president while distinguishing himself from Gov. Jerry Brown, who vetoed a similar measure in 2017.

Newsom rarely hesitates to throw punches at Trump, habitually assailing the president on Twitter as the California Department of Justice challenges the administration over dozens of policies. Before becoming governor, Newsom regularly called out Trump for not disclosing his tax returns and insinuated that Trump was hiding damaging information.

Signaling that a lawsuit was likely forthcoming, counsel to the president Jay Sekulow said in an email that “the State of California’s attempt to circumvent the Constitution will be answered in court.”

Trump has sued to rebuff House Democrats who are subpoenaing his tax returns and challenged New York officials who enacted a law that could expose the president’s financial records.

“As one of the largest economies in the world and home to one in nine Americans eligible to vote, California has a special responsibility to require this information of presidential and gubernatorial candidates,” he said in a statement.

“These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence.

“The disclosure required by this bill will shed light on conflicts of interest, self-dealing, or influence from domestic and foreign business interest,” he said.

As Newsom does his best acting to make the law seem like it is a fair, non-biased piece of legislation, the bill’s author made it known it was aimed at President Trump.

“Presidential candidates need to put their own interests aside in the name of transparency. So far, our current president has done the opposite,” he said.

It’s time that President Trump steps up, stops with the obstruction, and follows through with 40 years of time-honored tradition that has made this nation’s democracy stronger,” he said.

Decades of time honored tradition notwithstanding, your feelings are not what is written in the Constitution and that is the only thing that is supposed to matter in court.

    “Presidential candidates need to put their own interests aside in the name of transparency.”

    LIARS! If they believed that they would require presidential candidates to submit their birth certificate so they could assure the age and citizenship requirements that ARE required by the Constitution.

      So far we never needed to do that. If circumstances came to light that brought that up, …..we would and should. Just like this circumstance.

        Actually kinda did. Obama was suspect by some. Consequentially presented his birth certificate. If he didn’t perhaps there would have been attempt at legislation. Like now with Trump and financial records. Being that he hasn’t voluntarily presented……that’s why we see legislative angles addressing this.

          First with the birth cert. NO he did not produce a birth certificate. He produced a certificate of live birth that would have given him citizenship (if not a fake) but that document does not qualify for natural born. Remember he obtained money for college as a foreign exchange student and either he lied about or he lied about birth. Which one do we the people get to see him tried in a criminal court? A persons income tax is private property and that includes the President. Others may have shown their income tax forms but it is not a requirement to be President or they would and could be demanded if even running for the office.

          rodney, Trump gave them a financial statement. That’s all that’s required, by law.

    The next time Newsom needs Federal funds for something remember what he tried to do to Trump. This is nothing more than bias signaling and it’s a disgrace that a state government official would stoop so low that he puts his whole state in jeopardy.

      Instead why not impeach Gov. Gavin Newsome ? – by definition he is the
      epitomy of an empty suit; he never stays longer than two years in any positon elected, or appointed. His inane proposition if taken to the Supreme Court could actually invalidate or eliminate, “All” Californian voting in the next election. Now wouldn’t that be a fun result ?

      What good can come from forcing candidates to be transparent financially? If we voted in a president without this knowledge and he’s doing a good job (with the economy and all) , on what basis should other voters need to be aware of financial records before voting?

    You’re not asking the important questions; WHY DOES TRUMP RELEASE HIS TAXES? WHY DOES McConnell not want to stop Russian interference.? More states will follow suit. It appears that Trump should actually be in thefederal pen, and not on the ballot.,

    This shows what an idiot Gavin Newsom is. According to the U.S. Constitution, a State cannot add its own requirements to a Federal Election process. As such, California just spent a whole bunch of needed taxpayer money frivolously in order to make a political statement.

    And we wonder why people are leaving California in droves?

    Fine, if Californcaition wants to keep Trump off their Primary 2020 ballet, then the government needs to refuse to let Caifornication votes count in the primary! Fair is fair! I say build a wall around Caifornication! Anyone from there would need to be veted BEFORE entering into the rest of the United States! Only Democraps would be allowed entry and maybe, just maybe if enough demos go there, it would just break off and fall into the Pacific Ocean! Just saying!

    Not a great fan of Trump myself although I am a Republican but the more I see and hear of Newsome, the more I like Trump. Newsome is a nuisance and should never have become governor of California. Is he trying to break us away from the United States to become a foreign country, dominated by illegals????!!!!

    Let’s not allow these BLUE State votes to count! Of course, there are the Write Ins” for your candidate. Looks like a LOT of writes Ins would happen if the Courts allows this and A LOT of losing DEMOCRAT candidates who will lose the elections if the voters find out AND WHY . . . Trump and his allies 2020.

    Another attempt by the democrats to rig the election. If they ban him from the ballot then their votes should NOT count for the election.

    I beleive that in order to avoid all this going around tax returns by politicians to hurt others from the other party its very easy to resolve, make a legislation where every single politician in washinton and estate govermemt ,congress,senate, and governors MUST SHOW THEIR LAST 5 YEARS INCOME TAXES before they are elected to office and every year after ELECTED while they are active in the position,, ,LETS SEE HOW MANY OF THEM ARE REALLY CLEAN AND HONEST,LOL,,,,MORE THAN LIKELY NONE, BUT FOR SURE IT WILL STOP ALL THESE DIRTY GAME OF LIES AND HYPOCRECY THEY ALL ARE PLAYING IN THE POLOTICAL FIELD should that legislation becomes a law…LMAOOO
