President Trump Seeks Possible Link Between Violent Video Games, Violent Behavior

President Trump Seeks Possible Link Between Violent Video Games, Violent Behavior

President Trump apparently commented on how violent the scenes he was seeing were, while the rest of the room was silent, one attendee told Kotaku (the meeting itself was closed to press).

The controversial tariffs, which are set to begin in 15 days, slap a 25 percent levy on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum, exempting Mexico and Canada. She said she sought to convey the challenges of keeping violent games away from kids "even for the most diligent parent". Only Canada and Mexico - both partners in the North American Free Trade Agreement being renegotiated - were excluded from the tariffs. He said unfair foreign competition had played a major role in the layoffs of about 500 of the union's members at U.S. Steel in Lorain and another 700 at Republic Steel, also in Lorain. That is the Commerce Department's position and, it would seem, President Trump's too, and therefore justifies some form of action in order to protect USA national security. Argentina made a similar case. "We work together. We can not possibly be a threat to national security in the USA, so we are counting on being excluded", she said.

"We hope that we can get confirmation that the EU is excluded from this", EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem told policy makers, experts and reporters at an event in Brussels. European steel producers are concerned about a loss of market access, but also that steel from elsewhere will flood in.

A study published on Monday by The Trade Partnership, an independent economic consulting group, found that about 33,500 steel jobs would be gained from the tariffs.

"The short answer is, we don't know the specifics yet", said Orr, who was assistant USA trade representative in President George H.W. Bush's administration.

European industry associations called on Malmstrom to react to the tariffs.

Some who favor getting the government involved in gaming restrictions said they'd also like for the White House to focus not only on games, but on other forms of media - TV, film, and music - where violence often shows up.

Let's ignore the dislike many Niners fans probably have for Sherman for a moment and explore the other question. Sherman played just nine games in 2017 before sustaining a season-ending ruptured Achilles tendon.

In Sydney, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull cited Washington's strong relationship with Australia, adding: "There is no case for imposing tariffs on Australian steel".

The latest version of this law, adopted under Barack Obama in 2015, will expire in July of this year unless Trump requests an extension until 2021.

Beijing vowed to "firmly defend its legitimate rights and interests".

"I'm not sure there are any winners in trade wars", said Johnson, who ran a plastics manufacturing business in Wisconsin before being elected to the Senate. It was the most explicit threat yet from the country in the escalating trade row. He says they risk undermining the USA economy, including manufacturers in his state. But that would probably require Congress to muster an extremely hard two-thirds majority to override a Trump veto.

Under World Trade Organisation rules, such counter-measures have to be in place within 90 days of the U.S. tariffs entering force.

The run-up to Thursday's announcement included intense debate within the White House, pitting hard-liners against free trade advocates such as outgoing economic adviser Gary Cohn.
