Trump discussed steel, aluminum tariffs with Argentina's Macri-White House

Trump discussed steel, aluminum tariffs with Argentina's Macri-White House

Previously, the White House confirmed that Mr. Trump would visit prototypes for his proposed border wall near San Diego and attend a Republican fundraiser in Los Angeles. As the video played, Trump commented, "This is violent, isn't it?"

The scapegoating of video games is hardly a new thing.

"Video games are plainly not the issue: Entertainment is distributed and consumed globally, but the USA has an exponentially higher level of gun violence than any other nation", it said ahead of the Washington talks, which the White House said also involved experts on violence.

The biggest problem with a flashy demo reel of violent scenes in games is how many of them are taken completely out of context.

Coming in at just over a minute and a half long, "Violence in Video Games" is now unlisted on YouTube - that hasn't stopped it from getting a rather joyfully disproportionate likes to dislikes ratio, though. It contains moments from M-rated games such as Wolfenstein, Fallout 4, Sniper Elite 3, and numerous Call of Duty titles, including the famous "No Russian" mission from Modern Warfare 2 that depicted a mass shooting of civilians at an airport.

Executives from the video game industry were on hand, among them two CEOs of video game publishers and representatives of the Entertainment Software Association and the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

In 2011, the Supreme Court rejected a California law banning the sale of violent video games to children. Richard Blumenthal to the Washington Post.

Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Council and founder of the PTC, was also present at the meeting, and proposed that videogames be regulated similarly to tobacco and alcohol.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told CNBC in a Friday interview that the president will consider national security, noting that Trump wants to be sure that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation gets more funding from European allies who Trump has previously criticized for not contributing enough.

Here's how the White House characterized today's meeting in a statement it released afterward: "The President acknowledged some studies have indicated there is a correlation between video game violence and real violence". However, Trump reportedly seemed open-minded in his approach to the discussion.

"Like all Americans, we are deeply concerned about the level of gun violence in the United States".

It's clear that no decisions, or honestly anything of substance, were determined in the hourlong meeting Thursday, but the return of anti-game arguments does nothing but distract from real issues that need to be addressed and empower voices that seek to subvert protected speech with which they don't agree.
