With the White House comments phone line still closed, the digital team from Bernie Sanders’ campaign have built a convenient workaround.
For anyone who has been trying to make a call only to be redirected to the White House website or Facebook page, now there’s a calling tool to deliver you to the businesses run by the same man currently running our country.
WhiteHouseInc.org was created last year with a PAC to push Trump to divest from his businesses while in office. The team that worked on Sanders’ digital presidential campaign, Revolution Messaging, is behind the project.
“Until Trump steps away from his businesses for real, their property is no different from the Oval Office.”
On the site, callers fill out a form with their email and phone number and then receive a call that connects them to one of Trump’s properties from all over the world and totally randomly. The website is aware that you will probably be connected to a hotel or golf course, but they suggest you “tell management that until Trump steps away from his businesses for real, their property is no different from the Oval Office and you want to talk about the issues that matter most.”
White House Inc. has a few suggested topics and recent Trump actions (and inactions) to bring up during your call, all of which sound Bernie-approved:
Pulling federal funding for reproductive health and women’s organizations.
Building a wall.
Repealing the Affordable Care Act.
Not intervening on student loan debt.
The site explains that they view his resorts, hotels and clubs as “satellite White Houses all over the world.” So if the main line isn’t up and running (which on Wednesday evening it was not), this site has a few dozen numbers that connect you to real, living, breathing humans, who like the White House staff, work for Trump.
