BREAKING: US court rules it's UNCONSTITUTIONAL for Trump to block trolls on Twitter

Conservative Review

A U.S. appeals court Tuesday upheld a previous ruling that said President Donald Trump cannot block his critics on Twitter.

According to Reuters, the Second Circuit court found it is unconstitutional under the First Amendment for Trump "to exclude persons from an otherwise‐open online dialogue because they expressed views with which" he disagreed. This decision follows a 2018 lower court ruling that said public officials may not block a person from following their Twitter accounts because of that person's political views.

Courthouse News reporter Adam Klasfeld reports that the Second Circuit rejected the president's argument that the @realDonaldTrump Twitter account is Trump's personal account and therefore not official.

This lawsuit was brought against President Trump by seven academics, celebrities, and political personalities blocked by the president's Twitter handle.
