A judge in New York has ruled that US President blocking access to his Twitter account would be a violation of the right to free speech, district judge Naomi Reice said.

Mr Trump’s @RealDonaldTrumpplatform has become an integral and controversial part of his presidency that he uses to announce policy and verbally attack critics.

It was rule that comments on the US leader’s account, and those of other government officials, were public forums, and that blocking Twitter users for their views violated their right to free speech under the First Amendment of Constitution.

The U.S. Department of Justice, which represents Mr Trump in the case, said: “We respectfully disagree with the court’s decision and are considering our next steps.”

Twitter Inc, which is not a party to the lawsuit, declined to comment on the ruling.
