Sept. 24 (UPI) -- The late Ruth Bader Ginsburg is lying in repose for a second day Thursday at the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., which drew President Donald Trump and the first lady in attendance.
The president and Melania Trump arrived late Thursday morning to honor the late associate justice, who died last week at age 87.
Hundreds lined up to view Ginsburg's casket, as they had on Wednesday.
The Trumps were met at the Supreme Court with chants of "Vote him out" and "Honor her wish" as they viewed Ginsburg's flag-draped casket.
Before her death, Ginsburg had transcribed to a relative her wish that her successor would not be appointed until after the winner of the Nov. 3 election is inaugurated in January.
"Our nation mourns the loss of a titan of the law," Trump said after she died last Friday.
"Renowned for her brilliant mind and her powerful dissents at the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg demonstrated that one can disagree without being disagreeable toward one's colleagues or different points of view."
Trump's visit came as he prepares to nominate his third justice to the Supreme Court in less than four years. He said he will name his choice on Saturday, a day after Ginsburg lies in state at the U.S. Capitol and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
Ginsburg's casket was first positioned atop the building's front steps on Wednesday as hundreds visited to honor her.
Following the second day of public viewing at the Supreme Court, Ginsburg will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday -- the first woman to be accorded the honor.
Earlier Thursday, a new Gallup survey showed that most Americans believed this month that the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court was "about right." The poll, however, was conducted before Ginsburg's death created a vacancy that's now expected to be filled by another conservative justice.
