President Trump says migrants headed to the U.S. might as well turn around and go home. In Scottsdale, Arizona today, Trump repeated a threat to deploy military troops along the southern border. Trump has been angered by the current surge of illegal immigration.       At least 50 people are feared to be dead after being hit by a train in Northern India. The victims had gathered near a railroad crossing to watch celebrations for a nearby festival as part of a Hindu tradition. At least 60 more people were transported to the hospital because the speeding train did not stop following the accident.       U.S. officials are targeting a Russian woman for election interference. The Justice Department is charging Elena Khusyaynova [[ kush-yah-NOVA ]] with trying to meddle in the upcoming U.S. midterm elections through social media. The woman lives in Russia and it is unlikely that she would be extradited to the U.S.       Several South Carolina students and an adult are hospitalized after a school bus crash. Officials say a bus ran off the road into the woods on US 25 in northern Greenwood. The school district says the bus was on its way back from a field trip.       The Orionid [[ or-RYE-oh-nid ]] meteor shower will peak on Sunday night. Astronomers say stargazers could see around 15 to 20 meteors an hour. Each meteor can travel around 148-thousand miles an hour as they rocket through Earth's atmosphere.       Rap superstar Cardi B is helping out those in need in Brooklyn. The Bronx native handed out coats and sneakers to people at the Marlboro Houses yesterday and caused quite the frenzy. Cardi B was late because of a photo shoot, making hundreds of fans stand out in the cold for hours. Unfortunately, not everyone got a coat because they ran out.
