Alabama's state and federal lawmakers are coming out to support former President Donald Trump after the Colorado Supreme Court disqualified him from appearing on the state's presidential ballot.

On Tuesday, the Colorado Supreme Court officially ruled to disqualify Trump from participating in the state's presidential election related to his alleged role in the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

The court cited the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution in its opinion, which bars a person from holding federal office if they have "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against" the U.S. 

Trump immediately announced plans to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Crooked Joe and the Democrats know they can't beat us at the ballot box, so their new plan is to nullify every single 'Trump ballot' in the nation to keep Biden in the White House," Trump said in a statement.

He continued, "A ruling party is attempting to amass total control over America by rigging the election against its leading opponent who happens to be a political outsider committed to defending the needs and interests of hardworking Americans. This is how dictatorships are born."

Shortly after the ruling was announced, lawmakers in D.C. and Montgomery blasted the court's ruling and declared support for the former president.

Aside from Alabama's federal delegation, Alabama Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth also chimed in in support of Trump, claiming the ruling was an attempt to "steal and rig next year's election."
