Supreme Court Just Ruled In Trump’s Favor

The Supreme Court has ruled on a case on Mon­day relat­ed to for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s use of his Twit­ter account. Specif­i­cal­ly, the case dealt with whether or not he was allowed to block users who were repeat­ed­ly crit­i­ciz­ing him. But Jus­tice Clarence Thomas’ con­cur­ring opin­ion is the real headliner.

Twit­ter users had filed the case Knight First Amend­ment Insti­tute v. Trump in 2017, which became Knight First Amend­ment Insti­tute v. Biden in 2021. The claimants argued that the for­mer pres­i­dent had vio­lat­ed their First Amend­ment rights by block­ing their user accounts. While Trump tweet­ed from his per­son­al account, the Twit­ter users argued that he had used it in a pres­i­den­tial capac­i­ty by releas­ing offi­cial state­ments, thus mak­ing it a “pub­lic forum.” In 2018, a judge in New York had ruled that the president’s actions were unconstitutional.

Jus­tice Clarence Thomas wrote the con­cur­ring opin­ion stat­ing that dis­miss­ing the case was the right thing to do, and not­ed that Don­ald Trump is no longer in office.
