Family First Comment: Finally! Political leadership who are willing to confront the elephant in the room – video violence, and its effect in society! Thank you President Trump.

A montage video of bloody and brutal scenes has been created by US President Donald Trump’s administration, to showcase extreme video game violence.

The video was shown during Mr Trump’s meeting on Thursday with game-industry executives, watchdog group representatives, lawmakers and other attendees, before being released on YouTube, where it has been viewed over 600,000 times and is the White House’s fifth most viewed video since Mr Trump took office.

The video-gaming industry has, however, rebutted that there has never been any evidence showing violence in fantasy video games correlate with real-life violence.
