Trump assails Ginsburg statements about him
WASHINGTON - Presumptive Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump is assailing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a message tweeted late Tuesday.
"Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me," he posted on realDonaldTrump.
Ginsburg had said that she felt Trump was unqualified for the position. She said in an interview with The Associated Press last week that she didn't want to think about the possibility that Trump would be president and predicted that Democrat Hillary Clinton would win.
"Her mind is shot - resign," Trump demanded in his Twitter message.
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that it was "totally inappropriate" for Ginsburg to criticize Trump.
McConnell said that members of the Supreme Court shouldn't weigh in on American elections.
"It raises a level of skepticism that the American people have from time to time about just how objective the Supreme Court is, whether they're over there to call the balls and strikes, or weigh in on one side or another," he said.
