How much deference should SCOTUS give to the president? | Omar Noureldin on CNN

Omar Noureldin, a legal analyst, USC law lecturer, and MPAC vice president & general counsel, joined CNN Newsroom to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision to hear Trump’s Muslim travel ban later this year. Noureldin commented that the decision will likely hinge on two issues. First, whether then-candidate Trump’s anti-Muslim campaign statements can be attributed to President Trump’s policymaking functions. And, second, how much deference the justices believe should be given to the president’s action despite alleged religious animus.
