Donald Trump’s top trade negotiator appeared to back away on Tuesday from a widely criticised threat to pull out of a trade pact with South Korea, after a loud backlash from Congress, farmers and the US business community. Speaking to reporters in Mexico City, Robert Lighthizer, the US trade representative, said he still hoped that the Korea-US deal which went into effect in 2012 could be renegotiated to help reduce the US trade deficit with Seoul.
It is Labor Day in the US and that makes it both the unofficial end of summer for Donald Trump and a good time to take a breath and think about what lies ahead for the rest of 2017 in trade. It is going to be busy. Here is my “Back to School” primer on the main things I am watching:This is the biggest question hanging over the global economy. And the biggest risk. After China hawk Steve Bannon’s exit there was a temptation to proclaim the death of the Trump White House’s economic nationalism.
Donald Trump faced an increasingly complex conundrum over how to address the mounting threat from North Korea after Pyongyang conducted a nuclear test just days after the regime of Kim Jong Un launched a ballistic missile that flew over Japan. US, Japanese and South Korean warplanes had conducted joint exercises over the Korean peninsula last week to send a potent message to the North Korean leader. But Mr Kim ignored the threat and conducted his country’s sixth test of a nuclear weapon.
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".
