President Trump says there's tremendous "spirit" ahead of next month's midterm elections. At the White House yesterday, Trump predicted that Republicans will do very well this November. Trump said Republicans can check off tax cuts, security and a strong military in their column.        President Trump continues to say Democrats are at fault for the caravan of Central American migrants heading towards the US-Mexico border. At a rally in Houston, Texas, the President said he thinks Democrats had something to do with the massive numbers of Hondurans and Guatemalans fleeing their countries. Trump was in Texas backing Senator Ted Cruz, who is facing a challenge from Beto O'Rourke.       Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner says he told Saudi Arabia's crown prince it would be a good idea to be fully transparent about the death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi [[ ka-SHO-gi ]]. During a CNN forum yesterday, Kushner said the Trump administration is still looking into the incident and hasn't decided whether to take any action against Saudi Arabia. Khashoggi was a vocal critic of the Saudi government and was killed at a Saudi consulate in Turkey earlier this month.        There's a new credit score coming out that could help people with bad or no credit qualify for loans. FICO, which created the scores most people are familiar with, said the new score will look at how you manage checking and savings accounts, along with other financial activity.        The Fall Classic begins tonight. The Red Sox host the Dodgers in Game One of the World Series in Boston. The Dodgers beat the Brewers in seven games in the National League Championship Series to advance to the World Series for the second straight year. The Red Sox knocked off the defending champion Astros in five games to win the ALCS.        A new report says Russian troll bots made the controversy over NFL players protesting during the national anthem bigger than it would have been. The Wall Street Journal reports a Clemson University study found a Russian company backed by the Kremlin flooded Twitter with thousands of inflammatory tweets. The study says suspicious tweet activity hit a peak soon after President Trump ripped NFL players during a speech in Huntsville, Alabama in September of last year.        Amy Schumer says she's having a baby. The comedian wrote on journalist Jessica Yellin's Instagram story that she's expecting her first child with husband, Chris Fischer.
