Trump will pay his respects to Ginsburg while she is lying in repose at the high court, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement.
Ginsburg will lie in repose Wednesday and Thursday at the top of the court’s front steps following a private ceremony inside the Supreme Court’s main corridor.
The arrangement allows for public viewing outdoors. Ginsburg will also lie in state in the Capitol’s National Statuary Hall on Friday.
The president's decision to pay his respects to the liberal stalwart of the court comes amid a heated battle in the Senate over the push to confirm her replacement before Election Day. Trump has said he plans to announce his nominee on Saturday evening, and Senate Republicans appear to have the votes to confirm the eventual pick.
