Congress has until Friday to strike a deal to avoid a government shutdown, and deep divisions remain. Democrats are standing firm on their demand for a deal on DACA, the Obama-era program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. "Democrats aren't going to blink," says Illinois' Rep. Luis Gutierrez. "We're standing by our values!"
The president is making negotiations tougher after reportedly using an expletive to describe African countries. Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Neilsen was grilled by Democrat Dick Durbin about what they both heard at that meeting with Trump. Another attendee, Sen. Lindsey Graham, asked what happened to the president who led an extraordinary televised negotiation last week which was praised by both parties.
The backlash over one word is threatening to derail weeks of talks on DACA, the law protecting thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to America as children. "We're ready willing and able to make a deal on DACA. But I don't think the Dems want to make a deal and the folks from DACA should know, the Democrats are the ones that aren't going to make a deal," Trump said. Democrats have already said they will not approve any spending deal unless it includes a fix on DACA.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
