Donald Trump

Because Donald Trump uses his Twitter account for official purposes and creates a “public forum,” he can’t exclude people based on their views, the 2nd Circuit ruled.

The president cannot infringe the first amendment rights of citizens by banning them from being able to see his tweets or post messages to him, the court decided.

The constitution does not allow Mr. Trump “to exclude persons from an otherwise open online dialogue because they expressed views with which” he disagreed, the judges said.

The president and a number of his staff members had been sued by a host of social media users who had been blocked by him on Twitter, meaning they could no longer see his profile or send tweets to him.
