The Iran nuclear deal was an embarrassment to the US: "And I don't think you have heard the last of it - believe me." If need be, he'd sort out Venezuela: "We cannot stand by and watch." And Cuba, too, was put on notice: "We'll not lift sanctions on the Cuban government until it makes fundamental reforms." The first push-back came from French President Emmanuel Macron, who said the Iran deal was "solid, robust and verifiable - [renouncing it would be] a "grave error".
Washington: March into the United Nations, name-calling and threatening destruction, and the chances are there'll be push-back. Going one up on George W. Bush's three-strong "axis of evil", US President Donald Trump went after a four-strong "small group of rogue regimes" in his first speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday - a contradictory demand for patriotism and sovereignty for all nations that would be policed by his administration, the inward rhetoric of his campaign notwithstanding.
Washington: Let the record show that António Guterres tried. Faced with sharing a dais with one of the UN's most strident critics – that would be Donald Trump – the UN Secretary General seemingly took a gamble. He crafted such a devastating critique of his organisation that Trump was reduced, almost, to sounding mild mannered.
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".
