Ginsburg died last Friday at the age of 87.
Trump, dressed in a black mask and accompanied by Melania Trump, stood by the marble courthouse coffin amid loud and clearly audible hues from many assembled.
As the President and First Lady pulled up in front of Ginsburg’s coffin, the crowd shouted, “Vote it!
The moment highlighted the public flashpoint that Ginsburg’s death became ahead of the November 3 presidential election, especially as Trump rushes to take his seat in a move Democrats have decried as treacherous and hypocritical after Republicans blocked Barack Obama’s candidate from court 10 months before the election. in 2016.
Ginsburg, appointed by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1993, was an icon for the Liberals, especially as the court became increasingly conservative.
His death sparked another push from Democrats to get people to the polls in November, and a wave of campaign donations.
Prior to the 2016 election that made Trump president, Ginsburg criticized him publicly, calling him “fake” in an interview. Trump responded by writing Ginsburg’s “spirit is down” on Twitter. She apologized later.
Trump has drawn criticism in recent days for failing to honor Ginsburg’s wish at the end of his life, dictated in a statement to his granddaughter, that she be replaced by the next president.
It is also not the first time Trump has been booed during a public appearance in Washington.
When Trump attended a Washington Nationals game last October, during the House impeachment inquiry, the crowd booed and chanted, “Lock him up.”
