Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers argued in federal court on Friday that Facebook should restore Trump’s account because Facebook’s terms of service don’t apply to him because he’s a ‘government entity’
Reuters legal correspondent Brad Heath couldn’t believe the unbelievable new filing
“It’s basically a copy/paste of his argument that he’s not bound by Twitter’s terms of service, so much so that the lawyers didn’t update the filing to address cases in that district that uphold the enforceability of Facebooks’ forum-selection agreement,” Heath reported.
“Trump’s lawyers are arguing that ‘President Trump’s social media accounts were government accounts, and not private ones,’ which would seem to raise loads of questions about how he, a private citizen, would have standing to sue over their suspension,” Heath said.
Legal experts ridiculed the former president when he first revealed the lawsuit against his social media bans
