Future Pulitzer Prize Winner Lin-Manuel Miranda on 'Hamilton', Race, and Originality

-On Donald Trump: "We've had characters like Trump in American politics forever, characters who trade on xenophobia. I don't have to remind you of the "Irish Need Not Apply" signs at the end of the 19th century. This happens in waves, and I'm trying to take the long view and not make Trump a part of my life; it's bad enough we have to endure his ugly buildings."
-People at Universal were afraid they didn't have a big enough Latino star to bankroll In The Heights movie, were concerned about it not performing well internationally.
-Still into the idea of a Hamilton movie, but will demand that the diversity he has on stage remains the same on film.

Source has a lot more interesting/intelligent stuff about his views on Hamilton and representation in theater/film.
