Trump’s attorneys ask judge to restore his account, claim Twitter had been “coerced” into banning him

According to a new report from the Hill, former President Trump is still fighting to get his Twitter account back.

“Trump’s attorneys on Friday filed a motion for preliminary injunction against Twitter and its CEO Jack Dorsey. The filing states that Twitter had been “coerced” into banning Trump,” the Hill reports.

The filing reads “Coerced by members of the United States Congress, operating under an unconstitutional immunity granted by a permissive federal statute, and acting directly with federal officials, Defendant is censoring Plaintiff, a former President of the United States.”

The report also claims Twitter “exercises a degree of power and control over political discourse in this country that is immeasurable, historically unprecedented, and profoundly dangerous to open democratic debate.”

The report adds “The filing also argues that Twitter had selectively enforced its policies, noting that the Taliban appeared on the platform in August.”

“Over the weeks that followed, Twitter allowed the Taliban to tweet regularly about their military conquests and victories across Afghanistan. The Taliban’s Twitter account is active to this day,” the filing states.
