'She led an amazing life': Trump pays tribute to Ginsburg

President Donald Trump on Friday said he learned about the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just after wrapping up a campaign rally in Minnesota.

"She just died? I didn't know that. She led an amazing life, what else can you say?" Trump said before boarding Air Force One on his way back to Washington, according to a pool report. "Whether you agree or not ... she led an amazing life."

News broke of Ginsburg's death minutes after Trump took the lectern at a campaign rally in Bemidji, Minn.

Though Trump touted his record of appointing two justices to the high court, he did not mention Ginsburg. No aides interrupted him to tell him about Ginsburg's death, and he bragged about not looking at the teleprompter during rallies.

"The next president will get one, two, three, four Supreme Court justices," Trump said during the rally. He mused about appointing Sen. Ted Cruz for the court, saying he was the conservative "crème de la crème" of the country and would easily get Senate approval.

"He's going to get 50 Republican votes and he's going to get 50 Democrat votes," Trump said. "They're going to do anything to get him out of the Senate."

An audience member could be heard yelling about Ginsburg's death during the rally, but Trump did not respond. After wrapping up his talk, Trump mingled with an ebullient crowd of supporters.

The Supreme Court announced Ginsburg's death Friday evening. She was an avid advocate for gender equality and voted reliably with the liberal wing of the court. She died at age 87 from complications due to pancreatic cancer.
