Just more a week after having pledged to restrain himself on social media after his victory as a U.S. President, Donald Trump has leaped back into the Internet, especially on the social network, Twitter. He tweeted on Saturday morning pointing out on the things regarding the issue made by Hamilton.
Donald Trump On Twitter
According to The Wall Street Journal, in a series of Twitter posts, Mr. Trump weighed in on all the buzz about Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s attendance at the musical “Hamilton” in New York on Friday evening. Mr. Pence arrived at the famous production but was greeted with boos, and the cast addressed him after the performance from the stage.
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior
The tweet of Trump alarmed the social networks and the reporters. Meanwhile, Pence told Fox News that he enjoyed the play, and was not offended by the curtain call speech that singled him out, the network reported.
The Hamilton's Answer
Hamilton: An American Musical is a musical about the life of the American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show, inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.
“We, sir, we are the diverse Americans who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us,” actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, said from the stage. “But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us.”
Dixon told the audience not to boo Mr. Pence, saying the production of “Hamilton” was one of love. While Pence said he wasn’t offended and that he didn’t want an apology. He also said that he, his daughter and her cousins “enjoyed the show” and that he “reminded them this is what freedom sounds like.”
