The allegation is that the Minnesota GOP violated its own constitution and state law in the process of taking the steps it did to get Trump on the ballot. If they are in fact found to have done so then Trump's ballot access would technically be illegitimate. If not he should stay on.

With that said, even if Trump does stay on the ballot (as I expect he will) look at this:

Clinton would not presently need Trump to be removed from the ballot to win Minnesota.

That might change though, considering that she basically called his fans trash.

Yeah, and? Certainly not every Trump supporter is a bad apple, but a lot of them are.

Racists in America are head over heels for Trump. Millions of them.

Neo-nazis, Klan members, and white supremacists in general love Trump. They love him.

How many people here at CR just don't realize that Trump is energizing the white supremacists in America?

Really? where does that even come from..

Barry been in office 8 years and his home state is a borderline warzone with inner city African Americans on the front lines. Welfare powered economic slavery and liberal socialism clearly is the most racist facet of America right now.

The cries of SJW against Trump really are empty and unfocussed... and part of the problem. 70 people being shot over a holiday weekend is acceptable apparently, SJWs only care about words that go against their common core upbringing.

The republican party has been the party of choice for white supremacists for years now, but Trump has really struck a chord with them. They are especially excited about this GOP candidate.

I don't like Trump either, but I do think it's in bad taste for a politician to be calling their opponments trash.

Well, that word "trash" was someone else here saying that, she never said that actual word about them. She did say many Trump supporters are racist, sexist, and homophobic, which is true. And she didn't say these things about all his supporters, just many of them, which again, she wasn't wrong.

I guess actually being in the klan doesn't matter, only your opinion it is the party of choice?

"This is Senator Robert Byrd(D) an actual KKK member who was endorsed by Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama"

I could quote a great many sources proving your statement isn't much more than personal opinion, but hardly worth it. Both parties are mostly elitist trash taking part in questionable activities. At least Trump is upfront about it though.

Yes, you found an example of a KKK member who endorsed some democratic candidates, but when you look at white people who are racist towards blacks and non-whites in general, not just extreme individuals like klan members and neo-nazi, you find that a lot of them vote republican, and the truth is that a majority of white racists vote republican. The republican party has been catering to these kinds of people for decades now.

On top of this, the republican party is the party of choice for those who are bigoted towards gays, bis, trans, and lesbians.

To be fair, the Minnesota GOP didn't follow the proper procedure so the democrats actually have a legitimate claim here. The court will have to do one of two things. They can either say that Trump needs to be taken off the ballet according to their own laws, or they can go against the law to keep Trump on the ballet, which might possibly set a precedent and make it easier for third-party candidates to challenge ballot access laws.

What I find hilarious about this case is that if the court decides to uphold the law, Hillary Clinton and Gary Johnson will be the only two people on the ballet in all 50 states + D.C.

Besides, let's face it. It's not like Trump was ever going to win Minnesota anyways. It's like expecting New York to go red. It would be much wiser for Trump to campaign in battleground states where the race is really close. That is if he's actually genuinely trying to win...
