By November 2nd, 2020, will Twitter temporarily or permanently suspend @realDonaldTrump, or @teamtrump, or @POTUS based on alleged violations of Twitter's Terms of Service?

Question

From his official declaration of candidacy in June 2015 through the first two-and-a-half years of his presidency, Donald Trump has tweeted over 17,000 times (Wikipedia).

Since early on in his presidency, there have been many calls for Twitter to suspend Trump. Recently, Kamala Harris, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 election, has argued that Trump has been violating the platform’s user agreement, as his tweets are:

“blatant threats that put people at risk and our democracy in danger. No user, regardless of their job, wealth, or stature should be exempt from abiding by Twitter’s user agreement, not even the president of the United States [1]”

By November 2nd, 2020, will Twitter temporarily or permanently suspend @realDonaldTrump, or @teamtrump, or @POTUS based on alleged violations of Twitter's Terms of Service?


Resolution

This resolves positively if Twitter confirms that it has intentionally temporarily or permanently suspended @realDonaldTrump, or @teamtrump, or @POTUS. Moreover, Twitter must confirm that the suspension was due to alleged violations of its Terms of Service.
