This is not Trump's first time using rhetoric harkening back to decades-old anti-Semitic thought.

While Cohn is expected to leave within the coming weeks, Trump said that Thursday marks Cohn's last meeting with the cabinet.

"We have some friends and some enemies, where we have been tremendously taken advantage of over the years, on trade, and on military", Trump said.

The president also has spoken for the need for a new ratings system for games. "So we may have to talk about that also".

Trump has made the issue personal, taking the unusual step of mentioning his concern for his 11-year-old son, Barron.

Granted those aren't about video games, but considering that she already links entertainment and the ills of American society together, there's no reason why she won't make a similar leap with violent video games and mass shootings in the United States. I think that shooting can be a fun and safe hobby given the right circumstances, but it's evident that a lot of changes need to be made in a lot of different areas before we see public shootings in the U.S. disappear. "I'm not going to get ahead of the discussion that they're going to have tomorrow but we think it is an important discussion to have and one that the President looks forward to". "And I can imagine that just like the producers whose individual episodes were playing out in that board room", he said, "there's some policy advisor sitting off in the wings way off camera who's been prompting and prepping Mr. Trump to have a certain line of questioning, a certain line of dialogue go down in a certain way and it just goes off the rails". And this is what kids are watching.

"I think she should be considered and she would be very good", Portman said Wednesday. You know, you rate movies for different things. Maybe you have to also rate them for terror, for what they're doing and what they're all about.

"As the White House and other leaders work to confront societal gun violence, we hope that they will demand meaningful change from the entertainment industry, which presents dress rehearsals for gun violence on TV, in the movies, and in violent video games", said Tim Winter, the president of the Parents Television Council, in a statement Wednesday. This meeting is taking place today and will be attended by ZeniMax CEO Robert Altman, Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, and ESA head Michael Gallagher.

"Video game violence & glorification must be stopped - it is creating monsters!" It stretches back to the 1970s and 1990s, when graphics in the games were nearly laughably cartoonish compared to the virtual reality of today. "He's been terrific", Trump said Thursday. As a candidate, he campaigned on a promise to bring back American jobs and place American interests first on the global stage, a sharp departure from the policies of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama. A side issue, but related, is explicit lyrics.

"The short answer is there is virtually no research" on whether or not video games cause violent acts like school shootings, says Mark Applebaum, an emeritus professor of psychology at the University of California San Diego and the chair of a 2015 American Psychological Association Task Force on Violent Media. They're all completely ready to throw video games under the bus for the Florida shooting, are conservative, and allies of the NRA and other gun lobbyists.
