Trump questions violence in video games

Violent Video Games

The US leader has triggered howls of protest in his own camp by slapping tariffs of 25 percent on imports of steel and 10 percent on aluminum on Thursday, with only Canada and Mexico exempt for the time being. "A month ago, Mr. Trump picked up the phone and called an aide to say he had just seen Mr. Navarro on TV and was impressed".

Economic analysts warn that a trade dispute sparked by the tariffs could damage communities that backed the president in 2016.

As Trump vows to sign new bilateral treaties and amend the North American Free Trade Agreement, congressional leaders could seize the moment to reaffirm their role in USA trade policy.

Either sourcing steel and aluminum from Canada and Mexico poses a threat to USA national security or it does not. Canada's foreign affairs minister termed the two things "separate issues" while Mexico's economy ministry said "the negotiation of the Nafta should not be subject to conditions outside the process".

The dispute has fueled concerns that soybeans, the United States' most valuable export to China, might be caught up in the row after Beijing launched an inquiry into imports of USA sorghum, a grain used in animal feed and liquor.

The rebellion is swelling among members of the US Congress's Republican majority dismayed over Donald Trump's contentious new trade tariffs, with many elected officials threatening to block the president's decree.

During his meetings with US agricultural leaders, MacAulay said he has run into "hardly any negative talk about NAFTA" and has found "like-minded people ... who understand the value of trade", though he also acknowledged that improvements could be made to the trade pact, according to the story written by Ching Lee.

"We urge the administration to take this risk seriously", Donohue said. "After all, mutual benefit is what we get in trade". He suggested in an earlier meeting with his Cabinet that Australia and "other countries" might be spared, a shift that could soften the worldwide blow amid threats of retaliation by trading partners.

Historically proponents of free trade, several Republicans dubbed the measures "stupid" and "misguided" - if the United States increases the cost of both materials, they hold, American producers of vehicles and other products will suffer setbacks on the worldwide playing field, and consumers will pay more.

Open trade, she said, is critical to ensuring Canadians have access to fresh fruits and vegetables year-round.

ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude added 64 cents to $60.76 barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, while Brent crude, used to price global oils, rose 77 cents to $64.38 a barrel in London.

When proposed tariffs were initially announced, stock markets went into a tail spin on concerns they would ignite a global trade war. But it found that 179,000 jobs would be lost, many in the service industry.

"The rise of this conversation again isn't about facts, it isn't about research", said DeLoura in a recent blog post.

But automakers could absorb price increases or figure out some other way to offset the increases, Dziczek said.

"We are an ally, not a threat", he said, rejecting any hint that the bloc's exports threatened USA national security - Trump's justification for imposing the tariffs.

General Motors doesn't expect the tariffs to hurt that much, partly because of its long-term contracts. No reporters were allowed in the meeting.

The National Association of Home Builders noted the tariffs would pile on more costs on builders and, ultimately, homebuyers.

The conversation lasted for nearly an hour and was "vigorous" but "respectful", and Trump seemed to be interested in hearing from all sides, said Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council, a group that advocates against violence and sex in entertainment.
