"In a so-called trade war. nobody wins, one generally finds losers on both sides", International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde said on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump will meet with video game industry representatives Thursday to discuss video games as instigators of violence in real life. The President showed off an 88-second supercut of violent scenes from video games and commented on how visceral they were.

Attendees offered opposing views after the meeting.

"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", said Dan Hewitt from the Entertainment Software Association, which represents companies including Ubisoft, Nintendo, EA and Activision.

The video game industry has said there is no evidence of a connection between its product and violent conduct.

"I was left with the impression that this is not the end of the conversation", she said. Henson stated that the meeting was more of a listening session and that no conclusion was arrived at, according to Time.

But while the First Amendment should make it impossible for the USA government to officially censor games they are already subject to de facto censorship, as any game with an Adult Only (AO) rating can not be published on consoles and most retail chains refuse to stock them.

In the meantime, he said parents have the information they need to protect their children.

Afterward, then-president Barack Obama, a Democrat, pressed for Congress to give the Centres for Disease Control $10 million to research the causes of gun violence, including the role played by video games.

Lawmakers have largely remained in the dark about the White House's plans, but many senators said it's a long shot at best to stop Trump.

Video game executives who were scheduled to attend the meeting Thursday included Robert Altman, the CEO of ZeniMax, the parent company for games such as Fallout; Strauss Zelnick, the chief executive of Take Two Interactive, which is known for Grand Theft Auto, and Michael Gallagher, the leader of the Entertainment Software Association, a Washington-focused lobbying organization for the industry.

The measure would raise the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 and create a waiting period on weapons sales. More than 3,000 participants participated in the study.

The high turnover of key staff in the White House, including the exit of Gary Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council is undermining confidence in policy making also. No votes have been scheduled yet in the Senate on a pending background checks bill, but the House has said it will consider school safety legislation next week.

To illustrate the American administration's concerns the video above was put together from footage taken from famous YouTubers, whose watermarks can clearly be seen in the videos.

Noah couldn't disagree more with the president and opposed the idea of video games being the only factor leading to gun violence.

Trump was apparently open-minded during the meeting.

While Trump has suggested rating both games and movies for violence, ratings already exist.
