Yesterday, President Donald Trump went to Missouri to talk up his tax plan, and to dismiss any notion that the tax reform package hurtling through Congress might benefit him personally. "This is going to cost me a fortune, this thing, believe me... This is not good for me," Trump said. That's a stretch, to say the least. While there are some elements in the plan that won't benefit Trump all that much, there are a lot of things he and his accountant should be able to take advantage of.
SEOUL —If you were hoping President Donald Trump would toss around nicknames for North Korea’s leader and use casual references to bombing the hell out of things, you probably came away disappointed from Trump’s speech in front of the South Korean National Assembly Wednesday. His avoided his usual bombast, even as he called for the “total denuclearization” of North Korea and he left a non-specific warning on the table for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
TOKYO, Japan — In one way, President Donald Trump followed President Obama, President Bush and President Clinton’s playbook in Asia: he met with the families of Japanese citizens that have been kidnapped by North Korea. On Monday, Trump met with 16 family members as well as one released kidnap victim. Shigeo Iizuka was among them.
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".
