Melania Trump: Ginsburg’s ‘Spirit Will Live On In All She Has Inspired’

First Lady Melania Trump offered her condolence to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader, saying her passing is “an immense loss,” and her “spirit will live on in all she has inspired.”

“Justice’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing is a immense loss,” Melania tweeted Saturday morning. “Her tenacity & strength were matched by her intellect & compassion, & her spirit will live on in all she has inspired. My prayers are with her family & all who loved her. #RIPRBG

Tiffany Trump in a tweet thanked Ginsburg for “being a trailblazer for women in the legal field, a pioneer for women and gender equality, and for showing that patriotism hinges not on agreement, but on the unwavering commitment to persevere, to listen, to learn, and to develop together.”

In a series of tweets, Tiffany talked about the closest friendship of Ginsburg and the late Justice despite their political views.

“Justice Ginsburg, an icon of the left, and Justice Scalia, an icon of the right, were great friends- regardless of their different ideologies. Ginsburg admired Scalia for his love of the constitution and his fierce devotion to defend it how he believed was intended,” Tiffany wrote. “Ginsburg often disagreed with his jurisprudence, but she too sought to defend the Constitution how she believed it was intended to by the founders. Scalia once even gave Ginsburg an advance notice of his dissent so Ginsburg could make her majority opinion better. What both understood about each other was that, despite their vast differences of opinion, they shared a truly unique bond – that of dedicating their life to advancing this country.”

President Trump’s two eldest sons also offered condolences.

“RIP Justice Ginsburg. Agree with her or not, she was a true trailblazer and fighter until the end,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Saturday morning, along with a video clip of his father first learning of the justice’s death.

“Justice Ginsburg was a remarkable woman with an astonishing work ethic. She was a warrior with true conviction and she has my absolute respect! #RIP,” Eric Trump tweeted.

The president in a statement called Ginsburg a “titan of the law” and offered prayers for the late justice’s family.

“Renowned for her brilliant mind and her powerful dissents at the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg demonstrated that one can disagree without being disagreeable toward one’s colleagues or different points of view,” the statement read. “Her opinions, including well-known decisions regarding the legal equality of women and the disabled, have inspired all Americans, and generations of great legal minds.”

Trump ordered flags across the country to be flown at half-staff in Ginsberg’s honor.

Ginsburg died late Friday from complications surrounding metastatic cancer of the pancreas. She was 87.
