Once again, Donald Trump's thin, sallowy skin has sparked a constitutional crisis.

The American president recently went on a Twitter blocking spree, and now many users are demanding that he reverse his decisions or face legal action.

A letter representing a number of blocked Twitter users read: "This Twitter account operates as a 'designated public forum' for First Amendment purposes, and accordingly the viewpoint-based blocking of our clients is unconstitutional."

One of the people represented in the letter is Holly O'Reilly, who was blocked after tweeting Trump a GIF of him meeting Pope Francis.

Mashable reports that the attorneys argue that the decision to block American citizens from viewing a President's Twitter timeline supresses free speech. Sent from the Knight First Amendment institute at Columbia University, it was also addressed to Press Secretary Sean Spicer and social media head Dan Scavino.

No lawsuit has yet been filed, but lawyers say that they're considering one if Trump doesn't reverse his decision.

Another blocked user, Joe Papp, simply criticised Trump's widely lamented decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement before being blocked.
