Mike Pence said he wasn't offended by the 'Hamilton' post-show speech

0

Mike Pence insisted Donald Trump will be the "president for all Americans" Sunday morning.

This comes after Pence, the vice-president elect, was booed by the crowd at a showing of "Hamilton" on Broadway on Friday. Actor Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the show, delivered a post-show speech to Pence, saying, "We are anxious you will not protect us."

Trump later criticized the actors and demanded an apology, saying "Theater must always be a safe and special place." Pence said he "wasn't offended," though he said he would "leave it to others" whether or not it was an "appropriate venue" for political commentary.

Pence even said he enjoyed the show.

He also addressed comments by Sen. John McCain about waterboarding.

He was asked about the role of lobbyists in the Trump transition team. After he was made head of the team, many lobbyists were removed. Trump had repeatedly campaigned on ethics reform and "draining the swamp."

As allegations of conflicts of interest arose against Trump, Pence also insisted Trump would separate "his business" from "the people's business."

Here are more of his remarks.
