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.
President Trump announced a slew of Pentagon nominations on Thursday, including naming Boeing executive Pat Shanahan as deputy secretary of defense. Shanahan played a key role in getting production of Boeing's troubled 787 Dreamliner back on track, and was promoted to senior vice president of the aircraft manufacturer's Supply Chain and Operations last April.
President Trump has invited all 49 members of the Congressional Black Caucus to meet with him at the White House next week, days after he sat down with top House Democrat and CBC member Elijah Cummings. The meeting comes weeks after April Ryan, a black reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, asked Trump whether he planned to organize a summit with the CBC like he has with other groups of legislators. "Tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting?"
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned the UN Security Council on Friday to take North Korea’s nuclear threats against Japan and South Korea seriously or deal with the “catastrophic consequences” that will likely unfold. “In light of the growing threat, the time has come for all of us to put new pressure on North Korea to abandon its dangerous path,” he said. “I urge this Council to act before North Korea does”.
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
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".
