Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about Monday:

1. WHOSE CRITICISMS SPARKED MORE PROTESTS AT NFL GAMES

President Donald Trump's comments about owners firing players who kneel during the national anthem sparked a mass increase in such protests around the National Football League as about 150 players sat, knelt or raised their fists in defiance.

2. WHAT HURRICANE MARIA'S DEVASTATION HAS DONE TO PUERTO RICO

Puerto Rico's nonvoting representative in the U.S. Congress says the storm's destruction has set the island back decades, even as authorities worked to assess the extent of the damage.

3. WHO WAS VICTORIOUS IN GERMANY ELECTION

German Chancellor Angela Merkel won a fourth term, but now faces the tricky prospect of forming a coalition with two disparate new partners after voters weakened her conservatives and a nationalist, anti-migrant party surged into parliament.

4. TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCES NEW TRAVEL BAN

Travelers from eight countries Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria and Venezuela will face limitations on entry to the U.S. ranging from a total ban to more targeted restrictions.

5. OPPOSITION FROM GOP SENATORS GROWS AND JEOPARDIZES HEALTH BILL

Republican opposition to the GOP health care bill swelled to near-fatal numbers as Sen. Susan Collins all but closed the door on supporting the last-ditch effort to scrap the Obama health care law and Sen. Ted Cruz said that "right now" he doesn't back it.

8. BLACK LAWMAKERS PONDER TRUMP AGENDA AT ANNUAL GATHERING

Those who flocked to the nation's capital for the gathering of black lawmakers, leaders and policy experts identified multiple ways that black Americans are losing ground under President Trump's watch.
