Donald Trump was salivating after reports that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was taken to the hospital on Friday for cancer surgery.
Ginsburg underwent surgery Friday to remove two malignant growths in her left lung. Doctors say there is no evidence of any remaining disease.
White House insiders revealed that Trump hoped he could replace the 85-year-old justice if she couldn’t return to work. However, Ginsburg is up and working as she recuperates from surgery, PBS reported Sunday.
Ginsburg has been treated for cancer two other times, a spokeswoman for the court, Kathy Arberg, said.
Last month she cracked three ribs in a fall at the court.
Despite her health problems, Ginsburg has never missed arguments.
The court next meets on January 7.
