The Supreme Court justice released a statement Thursday morning saying she regrets her comments, adding that “judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office.”
Trump said on "The Herman Cain Show" later Thursday that Ginsburg’s statement wasn’t a true apology.
"It wasn't really an apology, but we have to move on anyway. It's just something that should not have taken place," the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said.
"It's just a very disappointing moment for me because the Supreme Court is above that kind of rhetoric, those words. … But she acknowledged she made a mistake, and I'll accept that."
Ginsburg joked earlier this week that she would move out of the country if Trump were elected president and later called him a faker and said she did not want to "contemplate" the country "with Donald Trump as our president."
Her comments drew criticism from both Democrats and Republicans, and Trump questioned her mental capacity and called on her to resign.
"She's a disgrace to the Supreme Court,” Trump told Fox News on Wednesday.
“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them," Ginsburg said in a statement Thursday morning. "Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.”
