If Donald Trump is waiting for an apology from the cast of "Hamilton," he will continue to wait.

Actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the celebrated musical, told "CBS This Morning" that "there's nothing to apologize for." Dixon gave Vice President-elect Mike Pence an onstage earful about equality at the end of Friday's performance.

Trump has taken to Twitter to demand an apology.

Dixon said "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda had a hand in crafting Dixon's remarks, although Dixon said he "made some adjustments."

Dixon said Monday that both Trump and Pence are welcome to come back stage and meet with the cast at any time, adding, "Art is meant to bring people together."
