Examples of According in a Sentence

  1. Joe Kebartas:

    It's a horrible crime, there's no doubt about that, according to what was written in the boat, he was committing this crime because of what the U.S. was doing to the Muslims in the Mideast, and retribution.

  2. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

    Which isn't a lot. But this primary is just getting started.Both of these things can't be trueTrump's main pitch for reelection is the economy and, while it hasn't lived up to his 2016 campaign promises, he put forward an extremely rosy outlook in his annual budget proposal, released Monday.Just as an example, read from CNN's story about the predicted deficits in Trump's budget compared to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.Both of these things cannot be true:CBO says budget will grow -- The deficit -- the gap between how much the government spends versus how much it takes in -- surpassed $1 trillion for the calendar year in 2019, marking the first time since 2012.That number is only expected to widen even further over the coming decade, reaching a total of $1.7 trillion in 2030, according to the latest projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released in late January.White House says budget will shrink -- That's a sharp contrast to the White House's latest blueprint, which projects that the deficit will shrink to $261 billion by 2030. The President's budget assumes that the economy will grow at around 3% annually during that period of time helping to narrow the gap. Those estimates are significantly higher than what most economists anticipated along with the Federal Reserve.Bonus: Read CNN reporter Donna Borak's piece on the White House plan for more tax cuts despite the deficits.Impeachment falloutGiuliani has a channel to Barr -- Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Rudy Giuliani is giving information regarding his Ukraine conspiracy theories to Attorney General William Barr through some sort of special channel Barr has set up. This is not surprising since Trump clearly lumps his lawyer and the attorney general together. He asked Ukraine's President to be in touch with both of them. But a back channel to the DOJ? This is, um, not how things are supposed to work, writes Elie Honig.Trump weaponizes the presidency -- Read this from Stephen Collinson: (Trump) is completing his project of fashioning the office around his own personality. It's unrestrained, unaccountable, often profane, impervious to outside influence and factual constraints of normal governance. The President has established dominance over his party, his Cabinet and his own media complex. He loosened Congress's constraints by refusing to cooperate with the impeachment probe. The result is that there are very few political constraints on his behavior left.

  3. Fayez Seraj:

    If the international community provides assistance I do not think the Libyans would reject that, but within the rules and standards, and according to what Libyans want, direct intervention is unacceptable, and we have sent that message clearly.

  4. Laurent Jeannin:

  5. Yonatan Adler:

    According to ancient Jewish ritual law, vessels made of pottery are easily made impure and must be broken, stone, on the other hand, was thought to be a material which can never become ritually impure, and as a result ancient Jews began to produce some of their everyday tableware from stone.
