White House publishes video games violence compilation

After defying conventional wisdom, Republican Party dogma and many of his own advisers by announcing new steel and aluminum tariffs, President Donald Trump appears to be backpedaling on the brazen proposal.

The EU is also maintaining a threat of counter-measures that would target US imports ranging from maize to motorcycles, and may publish its list next week to allow industry and other interested parties to give their input.

The Trump administration focused on a number of massively successful game franchises, including Fallout 4, the Call of Duty series, Sniper Elite 4, The Evil Within, Dead by Daylight, and Wolfenstein, in the process getting the attention of not only the people who make the games, but, of course, the people who play them. The people spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the president's signing of the orders. While the confusing manner in which the President made this decision has done little to reassure American workers or calm global tensions, I believe that we must protect the livelihoods of domestic steel and aluminum workers.

"We express regret over the USA government's decision to impose tariffs on imported steel even though the Korean government has pointed out the problems of this action through various channels. I just want fairness".

The new tariffs take effect in 15 days, with Canada and Mexico indefinitely spared "to see if we can make the deal", Trump said, referring to a possible renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

While President Trump has been a big backer of the USA coal industry, it is possible that his new tariffs could backfire, hurting US coal exports while boosting those from China.

A senior administration official said those exemptions, however, could come at a price to other countries. The White House quickly shot down any exemption talk, saying that allowing a few exemptions would inevitably lead to more.

"There is a certain worry or concern about the state of worldwide relations, because if you put tariffs against what are your allies, one wonders who the enemies are", Draghi said.

That leaves some vulnerability for Hamilton's steel sector, comprising big companies like Stelco and ArcelorMittalDofasco, as well as many ancillary companies.

Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., said the tariffs might not have a major direct impact in New Mexico but they were not well-conceived.

Hardt called the U.S. decision a "blow to transatlantic economic ties" and criticised U.S. President Donald Trump for seeking answers to U.S. economic problems overseas.

"He's been terrific", Trump said of Cohn, who is Jewish.

"As we continue to work towards creating school safety programs that protect all children, the President will be meeting with video game industry leaders and members of Congress to discuss violent video game exposure and the correlation to aggression and desensitization in children", White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said Wednesday.

Mexico and Canada, both of whom are among the largest steel exporters to the US, have already been excluded from the tariffs.
