Disable Trump's Twitter Account

Dear Mr. Dorsey,
We, the undersigned, respectively request that you honor your own Twitter Rules and remove the President's @POTUS and @RealDonaldTrump twitter accounts, for the following reasons directly from your own Help Area:
1) Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
Trump has continuously attacked other people based on race and national origin, as his newest ban indicates. As one particular example, dated January 27, 2017, Trump tweeted "Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough. Massive trade deficits & little help on the very weak border must change, NOW!"
2) In detail with regard to point 1, you further express as examples of point 1: "
Examples of what we do not tolerate includes, but is not limited to behavior that harasses individuals or groups of people with:
...behavior that incites fear about a protected group.
The following are just a few examples of his tweets intended to incite fear about a protected group:
August 10, 2015: "We must stop the crime and killing machine that is illegal immigration [i.e. Mexicans]. Rampant problems will only get worse. Take back our country!"
June 30, 2015: "I love the Mexican people, but Mexico is not our friend. They're killing us at the border and they're killing us on jobs and trade. FIGHT"
July 13, 2015 "....likewise, billions of dollars gets brought into Mexico through the border. We get the killers, drugs & crime, they get the money!"
3) As president, he is a risk to the national security, especially with tweets coming from the sitting Commander in Chief like this one, dated January 29, 2017: "...Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III." The @POTUS twitter account has retweeted these tweets and must be also suspended so as to prevent any future channel for Trump's ill-advised and impetuous tweeting.
Finally, you have set the precedent with Milo Yiannopoulos, who was permanently suspended after his hate speech with Leslie Jones and the Ghostbuster movie. Yiannopoulous, as you know, was a staff member of Breibart, now the President's Chief Strategist and member of the National Security Council. We simply ask you do the same thing to @POTUS and @RealDonaldTrump.
We are not the first to ask this, I'm sure there are others. Now, however, with the ban on Muslims and Trump tweeting as the commander in chief, we cannot afford to take on the risks that he will breach national security, or tweet something that could be misconstrued by the international community.
You have the right to do this. You are a private company with no obligation to keep anyone on as a consumer of your product. Do this to protect America.
