Political roundup: Netanyahu, border wall and more

Fellow Mark Jones joined a panel on Houston Matters to talk about national and state politics and government. On U.S.-Israel relations, Jones said that "President Obama always tried to walk a delicate line between the Arab world and Israel. In President Trump, Prime Minister Netanyahu knows he has a true friend and ally who's unlikely to push back against [Israel] the way President Obama did."
