    What is the point? FB, MSN, Yahoo others etc delete what they do not want read either.!

    It is disturbing to want to read your president‘s statements and related commentary but to not be able to find anything but endless strings of insulting spam immediately posted to every Trump comment by people who have likely been paid by the "RESIST" movement of hatred and DNC corruption cover-ups who have already all but destroyed the Democratic Party, as shown in this film: be/V8ERFwZoPXE

    It‘s a silly lawsuit. A public forum is one controlled by the government. @realDonaldTrump was established before Trump was elected. It is not controlled or operated by the government and a non-public forum does not become a public forum (like a park) merely because the account holder was elected to a public office.

    That is crazy, anyone can block any person from any social media, if I don‘t like someone simply because that person is putting bad comments on my page I will remove them. This Amendment suit make nonsense just because he is POTUS. Why everyone is suiting the president for stupid things? They should get Hillary she colluded with the Russians and the killing Richie the DMC that work for Hillary. Also,POTUS won the electoral vote and the popular vote for sure. Lots of Illegals, legal residence and death people voted for crooked Hillary, they already prosecuted someone for doing that. THE DMC is becoming more like a communists party and is losing their credibility instead of working and helping POTUS they working to creating more FAKE news against the President, they all should get impeach for wasting taxpayers money. DEMOCRATS GET TO WORK OR GET IMPEACH FOR NOT WORKING, enough IS enough WITH THE RUSSIANS, STOP!!

    To be fair, the President won the electoral college, but Hillary won the American votes by over 3 million votes more than Donald Trump - imagine if Trump had not colluded with Russia!

    A silly, botched break-in and cover-up brought down Nixon, so this one is worth following.
