While the show’s pro-immigrant and pro-diversity themes may seem an odd choice of entertainment for the conservative politician, he’s not the only member of Donald Trump’s inner circle to have seen the show.
While the message of the musical is one of diversity and inclusion, the show’s expensive tickets and its lack of accessibility to those outside of New York can give the impression of liberal elitism — the very same thing the Trump campaign promised to fight against.
The historian Niall Ferguson has even speculated that Trump’s election win was “in some sense, a vote against Hamilton, with its celebration of multicultural America as heir to the American Revolution.”
BuzzFeed News has reached out to the Trump campaign to find who else has seen, or is familiar with, the musical.
So far, Republican National Committee communications director Sean Spicer has told us, “No, but if you’ve got the inside scoop on how to get tickets let me know.”
