These are the video games that President Trump wants you to avoid

Odyssey Asset Management Group Economist Enzio Von Pfeil weighs in on President Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs

Industry attendees at the meeting include the Entertainment Software Association, the Entertainment Software Rating Board and two CEOS of video game publishers, both of whom are on the Association's board. At a recent meeting on school violence, he said: "The video games, the movies, the internet stuff is so violent".

The Entertainment Software Association released a statement saying studies "have found no connection between games and real-life violence" and noting that games are played in other countries that don't have the same level of gun violence.

The meeting on Thursday brought multiple industry leaders together to discuss the issue.

The compilation - which appears to consist of game footage lifted from various YouTube channels, watermarks and all - runs for under a minute and a half, but packs as much violence as possible into that span. After it was shown Trump commented, "This is violent, isn't it?". Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-MO, who attended the meeting, told the AP. "I believe significant progress was made today, and my hope is that we can build on this progress in the future".

The Parents Television Council also attended Thursday's meeting. However, for the latter two groups, the White House only invited individuals from the right side of the political spectrum: conservative critics such as Media Research Council president Brent Bozell and Republican lawmakers like Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. They expressed hope that the meeting will "provide the opportunity to have a fact-based conversation about video game ratings ... and the tools we provide to make informed entertainment choices". However, Trump reportedly seemed open-minded in his approach to the discussion.

By all accounts, today's meeting was non-conclusive and a waste of time, but in the wake of the horrific Florida school shooting, the President is at least attempting to look like he's addressing the issue. The session was one of multiple meetings about gun violence and school safety that the Trump administration has held following the February 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people were killed.
