Former President Donald Trump is asking a federal judge to force Facebook to reinstate him while his July class-action lawsuit alleging censorship by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube proceeds, the Washington Examiner reported Thursday.
Banned from most major social media platforms for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, Trump filed his latest court action in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida — seeking access to Facebook ahead of next year’s midterms and his own possible White House run, the news outlet reported.
“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,” John Coale, lead counsel of the Trump lawsuits against the big tech companies, told the news outlet, referring to a whistleblower’s damning testimony in Congress.
Trump’s accounts on Facebook and its subsidiary, Instagram, had a combined following of about 59 million.
“Zuckerberg and Facebook say it’s the 21st-century public town square; if so, they should uphold the First Amendment,” Coale said, referring to Zuckerberg’s 2019 description of the social media platforms. “You can’t have it both ways. They’re like a public utility when it comes to speech.”
He has also sued to get his Twitter back:
