Screenwriter-producer Beau Willimon, best known for creating the American adaptation of the Netflix political drama House of Cards, is urging people to call Trump’s Washington D.C. hotel and demand that the President-elect sell the establishment to prevent “conflicts of interest.”
Willimon shared a script on his Twitter account Wednesday that includes lines for would-be callers to read to the phone operators at the hotel.
“Call Trump Hotel in DC to ask when Trump will sell to remove conflict of interest. Phone number & script here,” he tweeted.
“The Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. is only blocks away from the White House,” read the document Willimon shared on social media. “If Trump does not sell the hotel he will profit from diplomats, lobbyists and special interests seeking to curry favor with his administration, or who hope avoid retaliation for giving business to his competitors.”
