Donald Trump responded to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s criticism of him by calling the comments a “disgrace to the court” and “highly inappropriate.”

In an interview with the Associated Press last week, Ginsburg said of Trump becoming president, “I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.” (RELATED: Justice Ginsburg Hints Hillary Will Be POTUS, Shudders At Trump)

Ginsburg even doubled down on her comments telling The New York Times, “I can’t imagine what this place would be, I can’t imagine what the country would be, with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be, I don’t even want to contemplate that.” She even said that she would move to New Zealand if Trump won. (RELATED: Ginsburg Moving To New Zealand If Trump Wins)

“I think it’s highly inappropriate that a United States Supreme Court judge gets involved in a political campaign, frankly,” Trump told The New York Times. “I think it’s a disgrace to the court and I think she should apologize to the court. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.”

The presumptive Republican nominee added, “That she should be saying that? It’s so beneath the court for her to be making statements like that. It only energizes my base even more. And I would hope that she would get off the court as soon as possible.”
