How to use wring in a sentence?

  1. Joseph Dunford:

    So, I think for all of us, we should give Secretary Tillerson full support in attempting to resolve this diplomatically and economically, even as we recognize that it may not happen, and there may have to be a follow-up option, which is the military option, we can wring our hands and say it will never happen, or we can roll up our sleeves and make an effort to have a concerted economic and diplomatic plan that does cause KJU, Kim Jong Un, to come to the table and begin to have a conversation, at least stop the path that he’s on right now, which is further development of intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear capability. And to me it makes all the sense in the world to prove the theory of the case and to work this for a few more months.

  4. Lucinda Creighton:

  5. John Ing:

    It's the summer doldrums, so there are few bulls around, technically we're oversold, we're due for at least the odd dead-cat bounce ... but I suspect this has got to wring itself out.
