The White House has not released further details about the trip, but the New York Post reports he plans to attend a matinee showing of the Broadway show “Hamilton” on Saturday before returning to Washington. 
 
The hip-hop musical, which follows the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton, is one of the hottest tickets in town, taking in $27.6 million in advance sales. 
 
Malia, 17, is reportedly in New York this summer interning on the HBO series “Girls.”
