How to use standoff in a sentence?

  1. Jim Ritterbusch:

    We still view the U.S.-Chinese trade standoff as a major bearish consideration that will likely be requiring additional downward oil demand adjustments as this year proceeds.

  2. Noor Salman:

    Salman's defense attorneys argued those statements weren't accurate. On March 20, the mother of Mateen's friend, known only by the nickname Nemo, testified in court. She discussed the pair's relationship, and told the court her son was working that night in Washington, D.C., and had not been with Seddique Mateen. Jurors got a deeper look into Mateen's past on March 21 as they searched through Seddique Mateen browser history, which includedISIS propaganda and beheading videos. They also flipped through photos taken inside Seddique Mateen Florida home. Final text messages between the couple were then read aloud in court. Noor Salman texted Seddique Mateen twice during Seddique Mateen hours-long standoff with police, asking, Where are you ? Seddique Mateen responded, You heard what happened. ???? Noor Salman replied. What happened ?! Noor Salman texted. I love you babe, Seddique Mateen wrote in Seddique Mateen last text message at 4:29 a.m. Habibi what happened ?! Noor Salman wrote, using an Arabic term of endearment. Your mom said that she said to come over and you never did. On March 22, jurors watched security footage of Noor Salman standing by Noor Salman husband's side -- with their young son close by -- as Seddique Mateen bought ammunition at Walmart. I knew Seddique Mateen was preparing for Jihad when Seddique Mateen bought the rifle, was going to the range to shoot, was spending a lot of money and bought the ammunition, i saw these things as a green light for Seddique Mateen to do an act of violence. On March 24, lawyers revealed that Mateen's dad was a secret FBI informant for more than a decade -- a revelation that led to immediate calls by the defense for a mistrial. Seddique Mateen was a FBI confidential human source at various points in time between January 2005 and June 2016.
