Donald Trump's Video Game Meeting: Here's Who Is Attending Today And What To Expect

Trump to visit California next week, San Diego stop expected

Melissa Henson, program director for the Parents Television Council, a conservative watchdog group, said there is evidence that video games can "contribute to violent attitudes" or feelings of isolation.

Trump said the tariffs - which will come into effect after 15 days - will not initially apply to Canada and Mexico, and that close partners on security and trade could negotiate exemptions.

Trump plans to impose a duty of 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminium to counter cheap imports, especially from China, that he says undermine USA industry and jobs.

"Donald Trump doesn't care much about the rules", he said. Japan, South Korea, the European Union and Brazil called for similar treatment.

Canada's foreign affairs minister termed the two things "separate issues" while Mexico's economy ministry said "the negotiation of the NAFTA should not be subject to conditions outside the process". "I look at some of the things he's watching, and I say, 'How is that possible?'" he said.

On Thursday afternoon, President Trump held his cobbled-together listening session on videogame violence at the White House, and details of what occurred are beginning to emerge.

Adding new elements to the negotiations to create wiggle room on big decisions was a Trump tactic familiar to David Bozell, a supporter of the president. But even if they do, Fast said the president will probably be undeterred.

On Tuesday Trump appeared ready for a trade war.

Baldwin says the best way to support Wisconsin workers is to enact strong buy-American standards like she's supported and renegotiate a better deal on the North American Free Trade Agreement. "The meeting will provide the opportunity to have a fact-based conversation about video game ratings, our industry's commitment to parents, and the tools we provide to make informed entertainment choices".

Johnson calls the tariffs a "very risky action" that could spark a trade war.

Trudeau also spoke on Thursday with U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, prominent Republican critics of the tariffs, the prime minister's office said.

Fund managers from Oppenheimer, Federated, and Wells Fargo are among those who now see global and emerging market equities as more attractive than the US, where the prospect of higher interest rates contributed to a slump in stocks in February, leaving the benchmark S&P 500 stock index up about 2% for the year-to-date, after turning in a 7% gain in January.

He also said he expects other countries affected by Trump's protectionist trade policies to file disputes with the World Trade Organization.

India is among the steel exporting nations that accounts for 2.4 per cent of the steel that the United States imports.

The rebellion is swelling among members of the US Congress' Republican majority dismayed over Donald Trump's contentious new trade tariffs, with many elected officials threatening to block the President's decree.

"We have structured these proclamations in a way which are unequivocally created to defend our aluminum and steel industries", the official said.
