The creator of “House of Cards” has a new script that has nothing to do with the hit Netflix show — it’s a guide on how to bombard Donald TrumpDonald John Trump2020 Democrats spar over socialism ahead of first debate Senate passes .5 billion border bill, setting up fight with House 'Teflon Don' avoids the scorn of the 'family values' GOP — again MORE’s hotel in Washington with phone calls asking when the president-elect will “sell [it] to remove conflict of interest.”

"The Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. is only blocks away from the White House. 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,” the script states. 

“By flooding the hotel with calls,” it adds, “we can apply both public and media pressure for Trump to sell the hotel — the only surefire way to prevent such conflicts of interest.”

Trump has come under increased scrutiny over how he’ll separate his business interests from the presidency when he occupies the White House next month. Earlier this month, Democratic Sens.

In the script tweeted by Willimon on Wednesday, callers are advised to “be POLITE” and not to “bully or use foul language.”

“The folks at reception are just doing their jobs. It’s not their fault that Trump is profiting from conflicts of interest,” reads the script. “The goal is to have enough incoming calls that the message gets kicked up to their bosses, and eventually reaches the press and Trump himself.”

Willimon, who wrote and co-produced 2011’s George Clooney-starring movie “The Ides of March” is also the founder of the Action Group Network, which says on its website is “committed to moving the country progressively forward in the wake of a divisive election.”
