If you have been hearing a lot about Trump vs. Hamilton, or even seen “#BoycottHamilton” on Twitter, then you’re probably wondering what in tarnation is going on in our country. Or, you are thinking… “Here we go again…” This is what Trump vs. Hamilton is all about.

Friday, November 18th, the Vice- Presidential Elect Mike Pence attended the play, Hamilton at a theatre in New York. The play is based upon early American times, but has a multi-ethnic cast portraying white figures. At the end of the performance, the cast read a pre-drafted announcement to their future vice president.'

“We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir,” “But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us. All of us,”

The next morning, Trump took to twitter, and responded to the Hamilton cast. Instead of assuring them that everyone will be treated fairly in his vision of America being great, he felt the need to reprimand them. He ironically demanded an apology after rarely ever apologizing for the horrendous things he has said. accusations.
