This Video Game Montage Explains School Shootings, According to the White House

While the conference board says its analysis suggests a modest impact on the Canadian economy, it adds several possible reactions are not considered, such as further USA trade actions, including non-tariff barriers and a stronger reaction from businesses.

David Bailey, professor of industrial strategy at Aston Business School in the United Kingdom, said that the first step could involve the European Union demonstrating that its steel and aluminum exports are not a national security threat.

Republican congressional sources said Ryan and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady had been pressing Trump all week to avoid across-the-board steel and aluminum tariffs that would hurt US allies, and were working to suggest ways to narrow the tariffs further.

Maybe it's because his lawyers have advised him not to say anything incriminating, which, considering his personal lawyer Michael Cohen apparently paid the porn star $130K in hush money during the final days of his presidential campaign, is ANYTHING AT ALL.

Trump signaled other trade actions could be in the works.

Business leaders, too, sounded their alarm about the potential economic fallout, warning that American consumers would be hurt by higher prices.

On the day of Call of Duty: Black Ops IV's launch date announcement coincidently, Trump sat with partisans from both sides of the argument that video games are indeed shaping the youth's mind in a violent way.

The tariffs rollout has been rife with confusion and dissension in the White House.

Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan, reporting from Brussels, said the EU's real concern is that it will now have to deal with a massive amount of steel imports.

Nations around the globe that were not excluded from the tariffs reacted with dismay. For decades, both men have accused China of unfair trade practices that have displaced American workers and hobbled the U.S. manufacturing base. He waited as tariff decision deadlines set by Secretary Ross ticked closer, and the White House turned its attention back to trade after deciding to table the divisive issue while it worked on healthcare and taxes. The EU, Brazil and Britain were also quick to launch broadsides against the tariffs, which are worth billions of dollars.

Without doubt, however, those opposed to the import duties and inclined to use legal action will see this as an opportunity to undermine the US argument. "We didn't know exactly what the exclusion was until it got announced", Gerard, who is Canadian, told Reuters. "That Canada could be seen as a threat to USA security is inconceivable", she said. The talks are expected to resume early next month.

The White House appears to have an agenda that puts the blame of violence and school shootings on video games instead of other, more concrete catalysts like easy access to guns and lax gun control laws and isn't interested in changing its position. Recent weeks have seen other departures and negative news stories that have left Trump increasingly isolated, according to senior officials speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal discussions.
