WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump is challenging a federal appeals court decision that ruled he violated the U.S. Constitution by blocking people whose views he disliked from his Twitter account.

In court papers filed late Friday by the U.S. Justice Department, Trump sought a rehearing by the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals calling the 3-0 decision “fundamentally misconceived.” Trump has more than 63 million followers on Twitter and often uses his account to make significant announcements.
