The Trump Organization's profits still flow to Trump, letting foreign governments funnel money to Trump through his properties in the U.S. and business dealings in over 20 different countries1 – all in violation of the U.S. Constitution.
Congress members who represent you in Washington, Representative Martha McSally and Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, have not yet joined the lawsuit.
Call your reps and tell them to join the lawsuit and hold Trump accountable to the Constitution. Here are the numbers to call:
Rep. McSally - (202) 225-2542
Sen. McCain - (202) 224-2235
Sen. Flake - (202) 224-4521

Some of your members of Congress haven’t joined this lawsuit yet. It’s time they hear from you. Tell them to join the lawsuit against Donald Trump for violating the Constitution. Hear are their numbers:
