Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she is optimistic about the future of the U.S. over the long term.

Speaking after a viewing of "The Originalist," a play about late Justice Antonin Scalia, Ginsburg reportedly told a Washington crowd that she hopes politics can become less polarized in her lifetime.

When the pendulum of U.S. politics swings too far in one direction, Ginsburg said, according to the Wall Street Journal, "you can look forward to it moving back." Ginsburg reportedly made no mention of President Trump after the viewing of "The Originalist," but said she shared a favorable outlook for the future of the nation "over the long haul."

Late last week, Ginsburg commented on a case set to come before the Supreme Court next term. At Duke University Law School on Friday night, Ginsburg reportedly said a gerrymandering controversy could be the "most important" case the high court hears next term.
