The White House has slammed those calling on him to lose his re-election as he stood on the steps of the Supreme Court building in Washington to pay homage to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Everyone has a First Amendment in this country, but I thought it was a dreadful and disrespectful thing to do while the president honored Justice Ginsburg,” press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Thursday. .

As Mr Trump and First Lady Melania Trump stood atop the high court steps next to Ms Ginsburg’s coffin, the crowd outside was silent as raindrops could be heard on the television footage .

Then came a chorus of boos. Mr. Trump, dressed in a dark blue mask, stood still.

Seconds later, the crowd started chanting “vote it!”

The President and the First Lady stayed in their seats for a few more seconds before turning around and heading back inside the High Court.

Mr Trump visited Ms Ginsburg’s coffin despite his ignorance and mockery of his last wish: for the next president to fill his seat. The president told Fox News earlier this week that he believes she did not dictate this wish to his granddaughter, but her family was fed by the Democratic leadership in Congress.
