Ginsburg: Time to Move to New Zealand if Trump Wins

The current presidential election cycle has led many in the public eye to announce future relocation plans if the election doesn’t turn out the way they hope. According to The Hill, we can add someone that holds a seat on the highest court in the land to those that may be dusting off their passports to do a little house hunting.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has held a seat on the Supreme Court since being appointed by former President Bill Clinton back in 1993. During a recent interview, she touched on a number of topics, including her plans to continue on the bench “as long as I can do it full steam.”

As with nearly every interview that’s conducted with a high-profile figure in this volatile election cycle, the conversation turned to the upcoming presidential election, and let’s just say the Ginsburg may find that she’s run out of steam if Donald Trump is victorious.

She jokes that if her husband were still alive, he’d likely say “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.” Turning to a more serious tone, she voiced some concerns for what the aftermath of a Trump victory would be like.

“I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that,” she said.
