Gitmo cannot be closed by executive order, otherwise he would have done it already. It will take legislative action to accomplish that. And since the Republicans, and some Democrats, are vociferously opposed to having any Gitmo prisoner tried on U.S. soil, there is little chance that there will be any movement there. Just like everything else that is stuck in Congress.
