"We are one-third of the court".

"Some bad things have happened in the United States", Ginsburg said.

Ginsburg, who leads the high court's liberal wing, was openly critical of Trump in media interviews before his election. Ginsburg explained that, in her view, "we are not as mindful of what makes America great" - our "treasured First Amendment" and the idea that "in our nation we are many and yet we are one". Specifically, she cited "the woman's march", which she praised for its "numbers" and "rapport".

The liberal U.S. Supreme Court justice, who previous year called then-candidate Trump a "faker", hailed the country as one made great by immigration, diversity and free speech, and suggested the U.S. was losing sight of some of its core values.

Still, she didn't shy away from speaking her mind about the current state of the country.

Bader Ginsburg did not refer to President Donald Trump by name in the interview, but her remarks stand in stark opposition to his regular salvos against the American media, which he has described as an "enemy of the American people".

Ginsburg noted that the USA has emerged from dark chapters in its history, like the imprisonment of Japanese Americans during World War II. She said she got to know Gorsuch two years ago during a judicial trip to the United Kingdom. "So I have a way to go". "That story might never have come out if we didn't have the free press that we do", Ginsburg said about the Watergate scandal. "What will be next year?" she said.

When asked how she felt about today's political climate, Ginsburg said: "Our legislature - which is the first branch of government - is right now not working". While at times in its history, America has been a less open society - Ginsburg referenced the.
