Through the course of his candidacy for the highest political position in the United States, presumptive Republican candidate Donald Trump has made a name for himself by clashing with some of the biggest personalities in America, and beyond. Previous presidents, rivals, even the Pope himself, became a target for the brazen candidate. Now, The Donald has added another name to the list - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader.
In a way, it could be said that the Supreme Court Justice drew first blood. In a previous interview, Ginsburg, who is known as one of the most vocal and headstrong women in the American justice system, expressed her reservations about Trump's candidacy.
"I can't imagine what this place would be -- I can't imagine what the country would be -- with Donald Trump as our president," she said.
In true Trump fashion, the GOP candidate responded on Wednesday, demanding that the Supreme Court Justice resign immediately. Trump has also added some fire to his own rhetoric, branding Ginsburg's statements as "dumb."
Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!

Undeterred, however, Ginsburg has responded to Trump once more. Responding to the real estate mogul-turned presidential candidate, the Supreme Court Justice even elaborated on her previous statement. She even targeted a pretty notable criticism of the candidate - his tax returns.
"He is a faker. He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that," she said.
Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg's statements about the GOP candidate has polarized the public's opinion, with some believing that she was out of line and some stating that she was well within her rights to express her own opinions about Donald Trump.
