Former New Hampshire Gov. John H. Sununu, once a vocal critic of Donald Trump, endorsed the Republican presidential nominee on Tuesday. The endorsement from the former chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush is an important step for Trump to coalesce establishment Republicans behind his candidacy.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton faced off Monday night for the first presidential debate - and much like the 2016 election, it was not normal. Here are all the moments that made the Internet wonder during the 90-minute debate: 1. Clinton coining a new term in reference to Trump's economic policies: "Trumped-up trickle-down," a riff on "trickle-down economics."
We figured Clinton would note Trump's praised of Russian president Vladimir Putin, it happened during a question about cyber security. Clinton said "there's no doubt" that Russia has hacked American public and private entities, adding that she "was so shocked when Donald publicly invited Putin to hack" into American organizations.
Clinton said Trump called climate change a hoax, while Trump interjected -- "I did not, I do not say that." So which is it? Trump has called global warming a hoax repeatedly. In 2012, Trump argued global warming was invented by the Chinese to hurt American trade, though he later said that was a joke.
Trump once again vowed to release his tax returns after the IRS finishes its audit. "I get audited almost every year. I'm not even complaining. It's almost a way of life," Trump said. Trump then said he would agree to release this returns "against my lawyers' wishes" if Clinton releases the 30,000 emails deleted from her private server.
A North Carolina congressman has apologized for saying the protesters in Charlotte "hate white people because white people are successful and they're not." Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican, made the remarks in an interview with the BBC broadcast in the United Kingdom late Thursday.
President Obama opened his DNC speech looking back at his first appearance at a Democratic convention 12 years ago. Sure, he's aged a bit since then, he said. And a lot has happened in those intervening years.
After initially staying silent, Donald Trump heaped praise on Michelle Obama's DNC speech. "I thought her delivery was excellent. I thought she did a very good job. I liked her speech," Trump told The Hollywood Reporter, an entertainment industry trade magazine.
President Obama hasn't watched Melania Trump's RNC speech - which has come under fire for alleged plagiarism - but he is aware of news reports about the controversy, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
