How to use extort in a sentence?

  1. Bruce Bennett:

    Certainly the administration is doing everything it can, within bounds, to get North Korea to trust them, but North Korea terminology, what they are saying, is exactly the opposite, which makes North Korea terminology sound like what Chairman Kim at his word is really trying to do is play the hard bargainer and extort as much as Chairman Kim at his word can... until the Americans decide( he is) not serious.

  2. Chris Cuomo:

    New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits harrassment, start cleaning New York up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but dont bring Fredo ! Trump said, tacking on a insult referring to Chris Cuomo, Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference is a nod to The Godfather films, and a character in the film who ultimately betrays Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference was first made by a Trump supporter last summer in a viral video that saw the television journalist get irate with the man for the insult. In the video, Chris Cuomo says the term was meant as a derogatory term for Chris Cuomo Italian heritage, similar to the N-word for African Americans. ( Punk-a ** b ***** s from the right call me Fredo, Chris Cuomo said in the video. My name is Chris Cuomo. Im an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather. He was a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.) DHS SUSPENDS GLOBAL ENTRY FOR New Yorkers ; WILL AFFECT 800K OVER 5 YEARS Chris Cuomo had said hes willing to restore federal access to driving records on a limited basis. But in a midday news conference, Chris Cuomo pledged not to let federal immigration agents see lists of people who had applied for a new type of license that doesnt require applicants to prove they are in the U.S. legally. If they think theyre going to extort New York into giving them a database of undocumented people, theyre wrong. I will never do that.
