WASHINGTON (AP) — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a "dumb" political statement when she said last week that he's not qualified to be president.
Speaking with the NY Times, Ginsburg weighed in last week on the impact of a Trump presidency. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that,” said Ginsburg.
It is unusual for a justice to criticize a candidate.
Trump says on Twitter that Ginsburg's "mind is shot."
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that it was "totally inappropriate" for Ginsburg to criticize Trump.
