President Trump told the United Nations Tuesday that his administration prefers to resettle refugees as close to their homes as possible, and can help more refugees that way because it costs more to bring them to the United States. "We seek an approach to refugee resettlement that is designed to help these horribly mistreated people, and which enables their eventual return to their home countries, to be part of the rebuilding process," Trump said in his first address to the UN.
MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski on Monday compared President Trump and North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un by saying both are "imbalanced," and that their reckless actions could lead to war. Brzezinski was interviewing former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Adm. James Stavridis, who said the world is starting to discount Trump's tweets, such as his tweet over the weekend that called Kim "rocket man." But Brzezinski said she worried that Kim might not discount those tweets.
North Korea fired a second missile over Japan on Friday, and while it didn't threaten Guam, the regime showed it has the capacity to hit the U.S. island territory. Reports said the missile was in the air for nearly 20 minutes, and traveled 2,300 miles. Guam is about 2,100 miles away from North Korea. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has named Guam as a target before, and experts said Kim has shown that it has the technology to get a missile there.
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".
