Home law Trump Cannot Block Critics on Twitter Says US Southern District Court in...

US Southern District Court judge Naomi Reice Buchwald has ruled that Donald Trump as President of the United States cannot block critics on Twitter.

Judge Buchwald wrote in her decision:

“This case requires us to consider whether a public official may, consistent with the First Amendment, “block” a person from his Twitter account in response to the political views that person
has expressed, and whether the analysis differs because that public official is the President of the United States. The answer to both questions is no.”
The case was brought by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University against Trump, Hope Hicks, Sarah Sanders, and Daniel Scavino.
