I cover Donald Trump's presidential campaign for the Washington Examiner. I have previously written for The Daily Signal, CampusReform.org and Red Alert Politics and have appeared on Fox News, Fox Business and MSNBC.
White House chief of staff John Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus during a closed-door meeting Wednesday President Trump may be open to signing an immigration bill that protects undocumented youth and boosts border security, but excludes steps to restrict family-based immigration.
The White House said President Trump's Thursday morning tweets were not meant to undercut his chief of staff, and don't indicate any tension between the two men. Trump declared on Twitter Thursday morning that his border wall proposal "has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it." "It was never intended to be built in areas where there is natural protection such as mountains, wastelands or tough rivers or water," the president added.
President Trump told supporters on Thursday that strong economic growth under his administration will help Republicans "win a lot of elections" later this year. Speaking to factory workers at an equipment company near Pittsburgh, Pa., the president said deregulation and the GOP tax reform bill create a deadly combination for vulnerable Democrats facing tough re-election challenges in the fall. "We have created 2.2 million jobs since the election. The unemployment rate is now at an 18-year low.
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".
