Pinched wholesale from various YouTube channels complete with watermarks and all, the White House released the footage on its official channel to strengthen its argument that violent video games influence violent behavior.

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

Malmstroem said Trump's announcement was "not crystal clear" and she would seek clarification when she saw US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Brussels on Saturday for long-planned talks that are now a de facto crisis meeting.

President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting at the White House, Thursday, March 8, 2018, in Washington. Michael Gallagher, head of the Entertainment Software Association, also was scheduled to attend. When former Vice President Joe Biden took on violent video games in a similar summit in 2013, the industry used that same lack of scientific evidence to convince him to back down.

Also in the room will be some of the industry's biggest critics, including Brent Bozell, founder of the Parents Television Council, and Rep. Vicky Hartzler, a Republican from Missouri.

"The video game representatives pulled out their same old talking points that have always been refuted", she said in the statement issued after the meeting.

"As a right-wing conservative and founding member of the Freedom Caucus, I never expected that the coworker I would work closest, and best, with at the White House would be a 'globalist, '" he said in wishing Cohn well. The infamous No Russian civilian airport massacre from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was in there; Dead by Daylight was in there; Sniper Elite 4 was in there; The Evil Within was in there; Fallout 4 was in there, and there was a couple of others I didn't recognise.

Lt Col Dave Grossman, author of "Assassination Generation: Video Games, Aggression, and the Psychology of Killing" was there along with Melissa Henson, a mother from the Parents Television Council.

It was the latest in a series of meetings Trump has held to talk about how to stop mass shootings at schools.

The montage depicts not only gun violence, but also violence from axes, knives, and at least one meat cleaver.

The meeting is not the first to take place between the White House and the games industry in the wake of a school shooting. 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". Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) acknowledged in a statement recorded by Glixel outside it. The statement is an admission that the nondisclosure agreement exists, and that it directly involves the President. "And then you go the further step, and that's the movies". No matter which side of the debate you come down on, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
