Ginsburg, who attended each of former President Barack Obama’s addresses over the past eight years, also skipped those of President George W. Bush.
Five Supreme Court justices will attend the address: Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito will also skip the ceremony, Kathleen Arberg, a court spokeswoman, told Bloomberg.
No reason was given for Ginsburg’s expected absence. She did not reply to a Huffington Post request for comment.
Trump and Ginsburg have been at odds over the past year after she said the then-candidate “really has an ego” and called him “a faker.” Ginsburg also told The Associated Press before November’s election that she’d rather not “think about [the] possibility” of a Trump presidency. She later walked back her comments as “ill-advised.”
Trump, for his part, called on Ginsburg to resign over the statements, saying on Twitter that the 83-year-old’s mind was “shot.”
Bloomberg notes Alito has forgone the congressional speeches since 2010, following Obama’s criticism of the controversial Citizens United ruling. Alito was seen mouthing the words “not true” during the address, which lambasted the decision. Thomas has not attended since 2009.
