But in fact, social media platforms have always been an important tool for trump to promote political views. Avery Gardiner, CDT’s general counsel, called Trump’s executive order “unconstitutional.”. In the lawsuit, the CDT said the White House’s move contradicts the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits government officials from retaliating against individuals or entities for their protected statements. White House spokesman Judd Deere said the government’s request to dismiss the case was based on insufficient legal arguments. < / P > < p > twitter described the executive order as “a reactionary and political move against a landmark law.”.
