She also called Trump a "faker", and he called for her to resign. Before the offers had subsided, Ginsburg was already back home, her strength no doubt bolstered by her faithful workouts with Johnson.

On Friday morning, before the Supreme Court announced her release from the hospital, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that he had good wishes for the leader of the court's liberal wing, despite harsh words between them previously. "I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years", Trump said.

As you know. she fractured 3 ribs after taking a nasty fall Wednesday. just one day after the midterm elections. As a result, she was forced to miss the formal investiture ceremony for new Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at the court that morning.
