US SC judge apologises to Donald Trump for calling him phoney
Washington: United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Thursday apologised for publicly dubbing presidential candidate front-runner Donald Trump as a ‘phoney’ with big ego problem.
The 83-year-old judge on Monday said she felt Trump was a big-time faker who did not think before spitting out his words. She also said that she could not imagine how the US would be like under Trump’s rule.
Ginsburg, however, apologised to Trump for her remarks on Thursday.
"I think my recent remarks were inappropriate and I regret making them. Being a Judge, I should have avoided commenting on a hopeful candidate for public office. Furthermore, I will be careful in future," said Ginsburg.
Trump's tweets regarding this:
Is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg going to apologize to me for her misconduct? Big mistake by an incompetent judge!
