Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg thinks the Electoral College is in need of a change.

"There are some things that I would like to change, one is the Electoral College," Ginsburg said during a talk at Stanford University Monday night.

According to CBS News, Ginsburg, 83, did not elaborate on just what she would change about the election process, but her reaction drew cheers and applause from those in attendance at the event.

After President Donald Trump won the Electoral College vote without winning the popular vote, cries to dismantle, abolish or change the Electoral College abounded. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

During the presidential campaign, Ginsburg openly criticized Trump, calling him a "faker" and saying that she "can't imagine" what his presidency would do to the U.S. She has since apologized for her critical remarks.

Ginsburg reportedly did not speak about Trump's pick to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, Monday night.
