President Trump has issued a presidential proclamation banning or restricting travel from eight countries, adding Chad and Venezuela and North Korea to the original list of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. The administration is taking a tailored approach, providing a variety of conditions, ranging from suspended immigrant and non-immigrant travel to allowing travel for nonimmigrants with additional scrutiny. Since the travel ban is condition-based, if and when the conditions change for any of the eight countries, the proclamation can be changed.

President Donald Trump's lashing out at NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem and the resulting backlash is playing out in part on social media, including under a Twitter hashtag trending Sunday morning, #takeaknee and also another variation, #taketheknee.

Prince Harry struck an inspirational tone at the Saturday opening of the Invictus Games in Toronto -- the sporting event he started three years ago to exclusively feature military veterans who were injured in combat.
Some 60 million Germans are making their way to polling stations today as Europe's most powerful country looks set to re-elect Angela Merkel as chancellor for an historic fourth term. Major western democracies have delivered unpredictable election results recently, including in the United States, the United Kingdom and France, but German polls have been historically accurate and Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) looks set to be the biggest party, although they would still likely need a coalition with smaller parties to form a government. The polls also predict that Germany's right wing nationalist and anti-immigration party Alternate for Deutschland (AfD) will enter the Bundestag -- Germany's parliament.
