Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg admitted Monday that Donald Trump will fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court in his coming administration.

Ginsburg, who criticized Trump publicly last summer as a “faker,” is acknowledging Trump will select the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s replacement. Her words are the latest sign that President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland is dead.

“President Trump will fill it,” Ginsburg said of the court’s vacancy during a meeting of the Jewish Federations of North America in Washington, according to the Associated Press.

Ginsburg also argued that the court’s work has decreased in recent years because less significant legislation has been passed by Congress. “Perhaps Congress will do some work,” Ginsburg said on Monday.
