President Trump, mourners to pay respects to Ginsburg during second day of viewing
President Donald Trump will join hundreds of mourners at the Supreme Court on Thursday to pay his respects to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal icon who died last week after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Trump and first lady Melania Trump are expected to make the trip from the White House to the Supreme Court, where the 87-year-old justice will lie in repose for a second day, even as Trump is preparing for a bruising confirmation fight over her successor.
Hundreds of mourners filed past Ginsburg’s flag-draped coffin on Wednesday, including former President Bill Clinton, who appointed Ginsburg to the court in 1993, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who likely would have named Ginsburg’s successor had she won the presidency in 2016.
