President Donald Trump shouted, “Vote for him!” When he came to the Supreme Court on Thursday morning to pay his respects to the late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Videos from Capitol Hill showed the president wearing a mask and the first lady standing in the Supreme Court with Melania Trump, with countless spectators shouting and shouting at the couple.
The late Justice lied in the Supreme Court before being laid to rest in the state in the American Capitol.
Thousands of people surrounded by police and his former law writers have paid tribute to Judge Ginsburg, who died Friday of metastatic pancreatic cancer. She is 87 years old.
Before he passed, Judge Ginsburg called on his granddaughter not to fill the vacancy left by the president in the country’s highest court.
“My greatest wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” the late Justice is said to have told her granddaughter Clara Spora.
Mr Trump has revealed that he will soon announce a candidate earlier this week, the day after he passed, in defiance of the dying will of hidden justice. His Republican allies in the GOP-led Senate have vowed to support any nomination he makes to fill the vacancy before the next presidential election.
When he faced the coffin of justice that came late, people chanting “Vote for him” echoed on the steps of the Supreme Court.
Mr Trump and the First Lady walked out of the coffin as the chants and chorus of worship were still audible.
It is a breaking story and will be updated.
