President Trump’s interview with the New York Times on Wednesday was full of news and displayed his personality. He said he wished he never appointed Jeff Sessions to be US attorney general. He also didn’t like sitting next to the first lady of Japan at a G-20 dinner because she didn’t know English. “Zero,” he said. It was part of the reason he went over to talk with his wife and President Vladimir Putin of Russia. The Times has posted the transcript of the lengthy interview.
Republicans’ second effort to replace Obamacare died in the US Senate Monday night and with it, nearly any chance for the GOP to keep its promise of repealing the health care law. There are a lot of explanations as to why this bill failed. There is also plenty of blame going around. But one person who cannot be blamed is President Trump. Simply put: Trump got out of the way to let the Senate do its thing.
Coming soon: What might be among the more iconic and entertaining political moments of President Trump’s first six months in office. On Thursday Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, sent a letter to Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., requesting that he appear before that committee in the next week regarding his meeting with a Russian lawyer, or be compelled to testify through a subpoena.
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".
