Could Trump ban Muslims from coming to the U.S.?
Legal experts have said he probably could: Noncitizens seeking to enter the country generally aren’t protected by the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection of the laws.
Are same-sex marriages at risk?
No. Just as with abortion, the president can’t overturn a Supreme Court decision by himself, although he could appoint more conservative justices. Even then, the chance that the high court would reverse itself is very small. Unlike abortion, same-sex marriage has steadily gained in public approval.
Could Trump reverse current policies on climate change?
What happens if Trump tries to repeal Obamacare?
Trump has promised to ask Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something else.
The repeal part is easy since the Republicans control both houses of Congress. The replace part is a lot harder, as my colleague Noam N. Levey explained.
Could Trump end federal funds for Planned Parenthood?
