Calling my reps #1: Conflicts of interest

I called Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. John Cornyn, and Rep. Roger Williams today. This is what I said:

Hello, I am one of your constituents in Texas. I am concerned about Trump’s many conflicts of interest. Passing control of his business interests to his children is not enough; he needs to completely divest and place his assets in a blind trust. Congressional Republicans are our best hope for providing checks and balances on Trump. Republicans who blindly accept Trump’s words and actions put our Democracy at risk, and set precedent for future administrations from either party. History, and voters, will reward only those who oppose Trump’s ethical lapses. Thank you for listening.

All of my reps are Texas Republicans, so I’m trying to tailor my messages to that fact, in such a way that they might actually listen. I’m tracking all of my calls here. You are welcome to reuse what I wrote.
