A federal district court judge on Wednesday ruled that President Trump can’t block people from viewing his Twitter feed over their political views.
Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, said President Trump’s Twitter account is a public forum and blocking people who reply to his tweets with differing opinions constitutes viewpoint discrimination, which violates the First Amendment.
I’m sure an autocrat like Trump will respect the wishes of a court. I mean, it’s not like he has a history of attacking courts and judges, right?
How is he an autocrat? He does stuff within the US political system and he has to get stuff passed by the house and the senate. If he was an autocrat he would be just handing down executive orders left right centre like Obama did.
It seems Thom you have no idea what an autocrat is. Maybe look it up in a dictionary.
The ruling is completely ridiculous. If someone wants to see someone’s tweets, they can just use incognito and just look at their page anyway.
