Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 84, said on Friday at an Equal Justice Works event that she does not plan on retiring anytime soon.
“My answer is as long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it,” Ginsburg said.
“I used to have an answer, it worked for a lot of years. It was Justice Braindeis, when he was appointed he was the same age as I was, 60. And he stayed for 23 years, so I expect to stay at least as long. Well, now I’ve passed Brandeis, I’ve passed Frankfurter,” she said.
The Hill added:
Trump has rallied conservatives around a promise he would fill the nation’s highest court with right-leaning picks.
The president appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch earlier this year to the delight of conservatives.
Ginsburg has spoken out against Trump in the past.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she told The New York Times in July 2016. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
