If y’all recall, Donnie’s Twitter account was suspended in January following the storming of the U.S. Capitol, a move deemed “indefinite” in alignment with the platform’s guidelines.
According to Politico, Donnie has asked a federal judge in Florida to force Twitter to retinstate his account. His attorney’s filed a motion on Friday seeking a preliminary injunction against Twitter and its CEO, Jack Dorsey. The injunction states that Twitter is violating Trump’s First Amendment rights by censoring him.
“Plaintiff Donald J. Trump respectfully moves for a preliminary injunction directing, inter alia, Defendant Twitter, Inc. and all persons acting in concert with Defendant to reinstate Plaintiff’s access to Defendant’s social media platform(s),” the filing states.
