Donald Trump and Melania Trump arrived to pay their respects to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she lays in repose outside the Supreme Court. After the crowd of people outside realized that they were there, they are started to boo.
According to ABC News, people were standing a block away shouting “Vote him out!” and “Honor her wish,” as Trump and Melania stood at the top of the steps of the Supreme Court in front of RBG’s casket.
This comes after it was revealed that Trump plans to announce his nominee for the Supreme Court. However, prior to her passing, RBG reportedly wanted her replacement to be announced after the election.
Ginsburg’s granddaughter reportedly told NPR that before she passed, she said, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” However, Trump has already expressed his interest in possibly nominating her replacement before Election Day.

As we previously reported, last week it was announced that Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at the age of 87 after battling cancer. Many people expressed their heartbreak following the news of her passing, but that also thanked her for all of the groundbreaking contributions she has made in honor of this country.
Many people also expressed their concerns for the American Government.
According to CNN, when asked about the boos he received, he said, “I think that was just a political chant. We could hardly hear it from where we were. Somebody said there was some chanting. But they were right next to the media. But we could hardly hear too much. We heard a sound but it wasn’t very strong.”
