Just minutes after President Trump finished his campaign rally Friday night in Bemidji, Minnesota, he learned of the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"I didn't know that. I just heard, you're telling me now for the first time" he said while ascending the steps of Air Force One. "She led an amazing life. What else can you say? She was an amazing woman, whether you agree with her or not, she was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I'm sad to hear that" he said.
Ginsburg died after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer at her home in Washington D.C. surrounded by family. She served on the U.S. Supreme Court for 27 years after being appointed by President Bill Clinton.
She was the second woman to serve on the nation's highest court, joining Sandra Day O'Connor, who retired in 2006. Ginsburg was then the sole woman until 2009 when Sonia Sotomayer was appointed to the court.
She was affectionately known by her initials 'RBG' or 'Notorious RBG' which become popular in pop culture.
