President Trump is making his first official visit to India. He addressed a packed house during a rally overnight at the world's largest cricket stadium. The rally, dubbed "Namaste Trump," is the first event to be held at the venue that seats around 110-thousand. It was billed as a sequel to the Texas rally held last year "Howdy Modi," when 50-thousand Indian-Americans greeted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his visit.        White House National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien says he's not aware of any intelligence that shows Russia is trying to help President Trump win re-election. On ABC's This Week, O'Brien questioned why Russia would want to support Trump considering his record on issues like rebuilding the American military.        Billionaire Tom Steyer will be on stage with his fellow Democratic presidential candidates this week. A new CBS News/YouGov poll today gives him 18-percent support in South Carolina and that's enough to qualify him for Tuesday's debate in Charleston. Steyer will debate six others including Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.        Federal and local authorities are investigating after 18 Jewish community centers across New York were targeted with bomb threats Sunday. At least one center in New Jersey was also targeted. The threats were emailed but none were found to be credible. In Albany, more than a hundred people were evacuated from a center Sunday morning as police swept the building.        Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is calling for an end to caucuses. The retired Nevada Democrat tells the New York Times that caucuses should be a thing of the past, adding that they don't work for a variety of reasons. Reid's home state just held its caucuses over the weekend and he thinks the state did a fine job, but he also thinks it's time for primary elections to replace caucuses.        Quentin Tarantino is now a dad. The Oscar-winning filmmaker welcomed his first child with his wife Daniella on Saturday. Tarantino and his wife got engaged in June 2017 and tied the knot in an intimate Los Angeles ceremony in November 2018.
