Houston Matters and News 88.7 continue to follow political developments form the weekend. Among them: a new travel ban, the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, an election in Germany, and — of course — President Donald Trump’s message to NFL players who kneeled or locked arms during their games’ national anthem.
