Donald Trump believes video games are partly to blame for the mass shootings in America — claiming the “glorification of violence” is desensitizing potential real-life killers.
POTUS just delivered a speech from the White House in the wake of 2 mass shootings over the weekend in Ohio and Texas … where 29 people were killed by domestic terrorists.
During his speech Monday morning, Trump noted 3 things the government can do to address the threat … one of which is do a better job of regulating video game violence.
“We must stop the glorification of violence in our society — this includes the gruesome and grizzly video games that are now commonplace,” Trump said.
“It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence.”
“We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately.”
Trump is clearly referring to ultra-popular games like Fortnite, Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto … where killing people is the point.
The issue with Trump’s logic … they have video games in other countries, right?
