Trump challenges court ruling barring him from blocking Twitter users

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump is challenging a federal appeals court decision that ruled he violated the U.S. Constitution by blocking people whose views he disliked from his Twitter account.

In court papers filed late Friday by the U.S. Justice Department, Trump sought a rehearing by the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, calling the 3-0 decision "fundamentally misconceived."

Trump has more than 63 million followers on Twitter, and often uses his account to make significant announcements, including Friday when his tweets about trade with China sent U.S. stock and oil prices down sharply.

The three-judge panel last month upheld a May 2018 lower court ruling that forced Trump to unblock several dozen followers.

9. Not to mention that this habit of announcing

policy via Twitter is something we have gotten used to but it is not the way a President should be conducting business. It is ridiculous.

5. Chump should be banned from Twitter

Take away his free soapbox and give the rest of us some peace and quiet already.
His behavior is truly unacceptable.

6. I thought repubs were against "frivolous lawsuits", that's all they do nowadays

That must be so last century.
