3. That's not how it works.

The SCOTUS does not answer questions on speculative matters. It hears cases that involve the Constitution. Without a case that has been brought to the court, SCOTUS remains silent.

A President cannot ask the court to decide anything on his own. SCOTUS is the court of last resort, mostly. No case; no ruling.
