Trump says he's not responsible for "Democrat run" states and cities.
George Stephanopoulos says, "they're American cities".
Trump says, "no, they're Democrat run."
Cool, so...we can secede then, right?#Cascadia #TrumpTownHall
For those not familiar, Holly Figueroa O'Reilly is responsible for one of the largest successful lawsuits against Donald Trump in 2017 after he blocked a twitter reply she had made using a GIF of the Pope rolling his eyes at him. In response, she joined with seven other users and the Knight First Amendment Institute and sued him in a landmark case for violating her right to free speech.
She is also an op-ed contributor for both the Washington Post and Huffington Post, and March for Truth organizer. The March for Truth swept the United States in 2017 and called for for deeper investigation into possible Russian interference in the U.S. election and the nature of Russia’s ties to President Trump and his administration.
In response, a U.S. District Court decided that because of how he uses it, US President Trump's personal Twitter account is a public forum and is a place for Twitter users to freely engage with his statements which must remain accessible.
