President Donald Trump on Monday was scheduled to meet with a group of tech executives at the White House, hosted the president of Panama and tweeted support for the Republican running in a special election in Georgia’s sixth congressional district. Trump said the Panama Canal, which opened in 1914, is “doing quite well.” In a meeting with President Juan Carlos Varela, Trump turned to him and said, “I think we did a good job building it, right?”“One hundred years ago,” Varela replied.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is dead serious about forcing a Senate vote on the Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill before the July 4 holiday, according to a report in Axios. Some senators want to delay the vote but McConnell views that as delaying the inevitable, Axios writes. The toughest disagreements are over Medicaid funding and insurance market regulations. This week is crucial for the Senate effort, Axios says.
The White House will address the issue of the existence of any possible recordings between President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey "probably" this week, press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday. Spicer's comments echo those by Jay Sekulow, one of Trump's attorneys, over the weekend. Trump raised the possibility of tapes existing in a tweet directed at Comey in early June, after firing him. Comey has said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes."
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".
