President Trump told Fox News in an interview on Saturday his administration intends to "refile" plans to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program before the presidential election in November.

Driving the news: The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the way in which the Trump administration rescinded the program in 2017 violated federal law.

What he's saying: "They want us to refile if we want to win. So we'll refile and it's going to work out for DACA," Trump told Fox News' John Roberts in an interview conducted in Tulsa before the president held a campaign rally in the Oklahoma city.

  • Pressed by Roberts on whether the administration would resubmit plans before the election, Trump replied: " I will. And I hope we can get directly to the Supreme Court; maybe we can't."
  • Trump told Roberts that the court's opinion showed "we won." "But we have to refile. And everything's going to work out for DACA and the young people, who aren't so young," he added, without elaborating further.

How the Supreme Court could decide the election

The Supreme Court isn't just one of the most pressing issues in the presidential race — the justices may also have to decide parts of the election itself.

Why it matters: Important election-related lawsuits are already making their way to the court. And close results in swing states, with disputes over absentee ballots, set up the potential for another Bush v. Gore scenario, election experts say.

Biden on Supreme Court fight: "This is about whether or not the ACA will exist"

Joe Biden made health care the overwhelming focus of his remarks from Wilmington, Delaware, on Sunday, stressing that the Senate confirmation battle over Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court is about preserving the Affordable Care Act in the midst of a pandemic.

Why it matters: Democrats are aggressively pushing the message that Barrett, who has previously criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for his 2012 ruling salvaging the ACA, will seek to invalidate the law when the Supreme Court hears a Trump administration-backed lawsuit against it on Nov. 10.

Leopoldo López, a former political prisoner and prominent Venezuelan opposition leader, has left the country, his Popular Will party confirmed in a statement Saturday.

Why it matters: He's been an influential force in the push to oust President Nicolás Maduro's regime and a mentor to opposition leader Juan Guaidó. He'd been in the Spanish ambassador's Caracas residence since escaping house arrest in April 2019 following a failed military uprising.
