“Hello. You have reached the Office of the Director of Communications at the White House. No one is currently available to take your call, but if you feel President Trump has insulted you using inaccurate information or otherwise mischaracterized something you have said or done, please explain your situation after the beep and the president will double down on whatever he has already said, then invent new lies and slanders about you. Thank you and have a wonderful day.”
