Hutchinson Raises Concerns About Trump’s Eligibility for Presidency

Former Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, a Republican presidential candidate, has voiced his reservations about former President Donald Trump’s suitability for the role of president. During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Hutchinson expressed uncertainty regarding Trump’s qualification to become the next president of the United States. Citing the 14th Amendment of the Constitution and the concerns raised by legal experts regarding Trump’s actions on January 6th, Hutchinson suggested that a court ruling may be necessary to address this issue. He mentioned the possibility of a lawsuit alleging that Trump’s involvement in the events of that day amounted to insurrection, rendering him ineligible for the presidency. Alternatively, Hutchinson noted that if a specific state independently deemed Trump disqualified, it could spark legal challenges. Hutchinson acknowledged that whichever path is chosen, it would likely result in legal proceedings. He predicted the filing of lawsuits challenging Trump’s eligibility and anticipated that certain states might take actions to confront this issue. Ultimately, Hutchinson conveyed his belief that there is a legitimate constitutional concern regarding whether Trump fulfills the requirements to hold the office of the president.
