Trump Demands Facebook and Instagram Reinstate Accounts in New Lawsuit

Former President Trump asked a federal judge to reinstate his Facebook and Instagram accounts going into the 2022 midterm elections. In a new lawsuit, Trump’s lawyers filed a preliminary injunction in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida while he fights to be permanently reinstated to the platforms.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“This preliminary injunction against Facebook seems appropriate to file this week since they’ve been big in the news lately for all the issues they’re facing,” said John Coale, lead counsel of the Trump lawsuits against Big Tech companies. Constitutional Litigation Partnership, a legal entity created by Trump and his allies earlier this year, supports the lawsuit.

Trump’s accounts on Facebook and its subsidiary, Instagram, had a combined following of about 59 million. His legal team argues Facebook is muzzling him while being a major avenue for public discourse and an essential tool for politicians to connect with voters and win elections.

“Zuckerberg and Facebook say it’s the 21st-century public town square; if so, they should uphold the First Amendment,” Coale said. “You can’t have it both ways. They’re like a public utility when it comes to speech.”

In the preliminary injunction, Trump’s legal team argued that by “cutting him off from the most effective and direct forms of communication with potential voters,” Facebook is “threatening irreparable damage to the Republican Party’s prospects in the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

Trump was first removed from the platforms following the Jan. 6th Capitol riot. Facebook’s Oversight Board briefly reconsidering the ban but ultimately decided to stick with the original decision.

Big Tech has silenced the truth, shut down free speech, and helped usher in this globalist takeover of America.

Our country on the verge of economic breakdown with joe biden policy.
NATIONAL SECURITY CRISIS? The biden supply chain. Trumps spent years to get our steel mills back open, return domestic production, biden is trying his best to kill that, just look at the recent order he gave his friends in China for drones? look at the the nuclear deal created with Australia,United Kingdom etc what happens when the supply chain indicates those orders of like high pressure plate, hangers,forged steel,alloy. high pressure valves and fittings are not available? Steel mills shut down, must get all material from China? Tax the mills, back out of business, create more shortages, how long will those orders will be in place and those allies remain with us? Where is the department of defense on these matters? Whose back does joe biden have? Not France, Afghanistan, not ours, maybe China’s. did he not go on Tellevision and brag about how China steel ptoduction, can make more steel in one day then all our production in a year? Is he not trying to kill our domestic energy sources? more solar panels for China? Why is joe biden’s adjenda trying to kill America? Time to hold the Biden family responsible for war crimes against our Nation, Time to hold his radical cabinet members equally responsible for their crimes against the American people, Time for full accountability on acceptance of money from foreign sources, adversarial to our Governmental, it’s ideals. principals. Biden crime family has been allowed to continue for too long. Time has come to hold the Biden’s for criminal border acts against the American people. The Country can not continue on this path without the full input of Congress to hold the executive branch to the laws they created, that are in place to stop incompetent self elected dictatorships from taking our country. Overreaching criminal political obfuscation by a mindless leader. Impeachnent is not enough, Biden’s betrayal should be held on the world stage for his Crimes agaiinst America, against our allies, against our militiary, against Americans who were killed, against family corruption, against his personal attack on American values, against our Country, it’s more then just politics, he seens to have total hate, for our way of life. Once again, look at the money the Biden’s have received from China, Russia, those decisions he made to benefit China and Russia, which no American would choose, against our Country’s welfare and values.Without Biden’s being held accountable. their betrayals, we will never be able to move forward, in Biden’s mind if the Clinton’s got away with it so can he ten fold. Impeachment is not enough it should just be a start. Inflatrionary trends prices and shortages are out of control the only thing we are not short of is illegal aliens. WHY IS HE TRYING TO RAISE TAXES FOR PROGRAMS MOST AMERICANS DO NOT WANT?

Soon it will be too late for the Middle Class democrat voters to see how much they will also be hurt by this 46th Illegal president we have in Office now. he new green deal isn’t going to change the climate at all as China and India are the biggest Polluters now and will continue to be. Al Gore made Millions starting the false narrative about Global Warming. In my opinion if we ever get attacked by China, Russia, Iran or North Korea all the Radical Democratic Liberals who are trying to bring our Country to its knees will more than likely make the hit list that is inevitably going to come for them.

Oh, but …. but …. the Democrats claim that they champion FREE SPEECH! They only censor their opponents because it’s their RIGHT to under FREE SPEECH. There, got that now?

I used to use Facebook but got tired of my posts being deleted. I have friends who are routinely blocked.

It’s the same on Twitter. I signed up on Twitter and posted one comment. Twitter deleted it. Haven’t been back since!

Typical of Liberal/Communists – they claim the “Right” of Free Speech, then take everyone else’s away. Their Communist Masters have been doing exactly that for over 100 years now. Oh, and “counting the votes” too!

So, why the down vote? Can’t stand the Truth? I see that everywhere I go now. Ignorant, mal-educated people that don’t know what’s actually happening fiercely attacking the Truth. Well, down vote all you want, but you can’t change FACTS by stifling the Truth.
