Trump Claims RBG’s Dying Wish Is A Democratic Hoax

Mediaite reports:

President Donald Trump claimed without evidence that the dying wish of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was fabricated by his political foes to desist him from choosing a new Supreme Court justice. Ainsley Earhart brought up the statement that Ginsburg dictated to her granddaughter shortly before she died: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

The statement was given to NPR by Ginsburg’s family, the Supreme Court said. “I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff, and [Chuck] Schumer and [Nancy] Pelosi,” Trump responded. “I would be more inclined to the second, okay?… That sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or shifty Schiff. So that came out of the wind. I mean, maybe she did and maybe she didn’t.”
