The Supreme Court’s oldest justice, 85-year-old Ginsburg checked in to George Washington University Hospital in Washington early Thursday after a fall in her office at the court the night before left her with discomfort.

Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Ginsburg is working from home Friday.

Before the court announced her release from the hospital this morning, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that he wished the justice well, despite having clashed with her on the campaign trail.

“I wouldn’t say she’s exactly on my side,” Trump said. “But I wish her well. I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years.”

When Trump was running for president in 2016, Ginsburg described Trump’s possible election over Hillary Clinton as unthinkable. She later escalated that criticism, calling Trump a “faker” in subsequent media interviews,

Trump responded at the time by referring to Ginsburg as an embarrassment.

“Her mind is shot — resign!” he tweeted.

Ginsburg subsequently apologized, calling her remarks “ill-advised” and regrettable.

A survivor of both colorectal and pancreatic cancer, Ginsburg also has undergone heart surgery and broke two ribs in a fall in 2012.
