Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene warned on social media her views that the U.S. is facing a “constitutional crisis” that could lead to a “national divorce” between red and blue states. The vocal critic of President Biden’s immigration policies stated in a post on X, that “America is in a constitutional crisis” due to the “full scale border invasion.” She also accused the courts of “judicial tyranny” and said the government is “politically weaponized against the people.” Greene concluded that “Soon national divorce may be our only option.”

Her warning came after the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump will be barred from the 2024 ballot in the state for inciting the January 6th insurrection. Greene slammed the 4-3 decision, claiming on X, “The Democrats and 4 Colorado judges just stole the election away from the people of Colorado and robbed them of their right to vote for President Trump.” She called it an “unprecedented First Amendment violation” that the U.S. Supreme Court must overturn, stating “This can not be allowed to stand.”

This is not the first time Greene has proposed a “national divorce.” In February, she suggested states with ideological differences could “separate” while “maintaining our legal union” to resolve political disagreements.
