European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker has come up with the perfect description for a trade war: “We can also do stupid.” Maybe there is a way for the EU, Canada and other victims of President Trump’s draconian tariffs on steel and aluminum to “do smart” – to retaliate against the U.S. trade action in a way that helps their own consumers, rather than inflicts more pain on them.
Last week, President Trump informed several lawmakers that he was considering imposing new tariffs on imported steel. The reaction was overwhelming – alarm. Most Republicans and Democrats in the room warned, in effect, be careful what you wish for – new steel tariffs would hurt the U.S. economy and cost Americans more jobs than they save.
The Soviet Union was the first country to try to centralize the distribution of goods through government. That system lasted all of 75 years, failing miserably in its attempt to match free market economies in the creation of wealth. Now the White House seems to think it can learn something from the Soviets.
@guypbenson No, I’d say the one who is undermining the legitimacy of the IG probe is Trump, who has already tweeted about how the McCabe firing demonstrates Mueller’s probe should be shut down - even though the IG’s report was based on unfairness toward Hillary Clinton
@benshapiro Maybe you don’t see a connection between McCabe and Mueller probe, but Trump seems to. That’s why he’s tweeting against Mueller. And McCabe has, or will, be interviewed by Mueller, maybe called before grand jury. Firing him allows Trump to argue McCabe has an axe to grind.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
