Recently, Ruth Bud Ginsberg (Ruth Bader Ginsburg), the oldest judge in the US Supreme Court, said he wanted to stay in the Supreme Court until the age of 90.

"I'm 85, and my old colleague Stevens (John Paul Stevens) retired at 90, so I think I can at least be able to do it for at least 5 years," Ginsberg said last Sunday after a famous play for The Originalist in New York. The play tells about 2016. The story of judge Antonin Scalia.

"If someone gave me a different opinion on the documents drafted by the court, the man must be chancellor," Ginsberg thought that the argument she had come back to by the chancellor of Scaria was like playing table tennis.

In fact, she hired legal personnel not long ago to help her work until June 2020.

When Smith (Molly Smith), the director of the drama "originalist", asked what kept her "hopeful", Ginsberg mentioned her husband Martin (Martin Ginsburg) who died in 2010.

"My dear partner may say that the real symbol of the United States is not a bald eagle, but a pendulum," Ginsberg said. "When the situation goes to an extreme, you can expect it to slowly come to the other extremes."

When it comes to retirement and other restrictions, she says, "no chance."

"You can not set restrictions, because this will require constitutional amendments. The third of the Constitution says that we are good at our position because of good performance.

She added, "most of the judges are very good."

Born in New York in 1933, Ginsberg is an outspoken liberal who has been fighting for women's rights since the 1970s.

In 1993, she was nominated to the Supreme Court by then President Clinton and became the second female justice of the Supreme Court.

During the presidential election in 2016, Ginsberg criticized the then Republican candidate Trump. Trump then wrote in twitter that "Ginsberg's brain was hit by a gun" and asked her to resign quickly.

Although Ginsberg apologized to Trump and said he would never talk about him in public, he also said he wanted to insist that Trump would not retire before Trump left the White House, because she wanted to ensure the balance of the Supreme Court's conservative freedom of the two judges.

In June, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced that he would retire at the end of July. Subsequently, President Trent nominated Brett Cavanaugh (Brett Kavanaugh) as the Supreme Court judge to replace Kennedy in a national television speech.

In January 2017, the Trump nominated judge Neil Gorsuch succeeded in succeeding the death of judge Scaria and entered the Supreme Court, which was regarded as a major victory by the Conservatives. There is no doubt that the new justices will play a crucial role in the direction of the US political situation.
