Donald Trump fired back at Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Tuesday, calling the U.S. Supreme Court judge's negative remarks about him "highly inappropriate" and suggested she apologize to her fellow jurists.
"I think it's highly inappropriate that a United States Supreme Court judge gets involved in a political campaign, frankly," Trump told The New York Times
On Sunday, Ginsburg said in an interview with The Times
"I can't imagine what this place would be — I can't imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don't even want to contemplate that."
Trump appeared to be jolted by the remark, which was uncharacteristically frank opinion for a Supreme Court justice.
"I think it's a disgrace to the court and I think she should apologize to the court. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. That she should be saying that?" Trump said.
"It's so beneath the court for her to be making statements like that. It only energizes my base even more. And I would hope that she would get off the court as soon as possible."
