I don't know if you can trust The Atlantic. A couple of years ago they told me ISIS would be empowered by get tough strategies from Trump and Obama that would drive up recruitments. It sure doesn't look that way now. ISIS is holding onto just one percent of their original territory. They look effectively dead. Meanwhile Al Qaida and the Taliban have been getting stronger.

long, but worth the information provided......in essence Trump probably would NOT win this battle....he has proven to be a inefficent in his ability to present FACTUAL platforms and the court
would tend to view his previous credibility gaps as reason to DENY accepting the case.
Lawmakers in both parties sharply criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday for planning to declare a national emergency to build his long-promised border wall.
"Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President Trump broke his core promise to have Mexico pay for his wall," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a joint statement.
"I do not support this decision because declaring a national emergency sets a very dangerous precedent that undermines our constitutional separation of powers. By circumventing Congress and Article I of the Constitution, President Trump is opening the door for any future president to act alone without Congressional approval," Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wa., said in a statement.
