US President Donald Trump spoke out against video game violence, calling for lessening it.
“We must stop the praise of cruelty in our society. We are talking about disgusting video games that have become part of everyday life. It’s too easy for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that promotes violence. We must stop or greatly reduce this, and we need to start now, ”Trump said.
and now Trump himself is blaming ‘gruesome and grizzly’ video games and the internet for mass shooting violence that only happens here in America

Trump’s words were caused by the terrorist attacks that occurred on August 4 in the United States. In the city of El Paso (Texas) in the Walmart store, a 21-year-old shooter killed 20 people and wounded 26 more. On the same day in the American city of Dayton (Ohio), 10 people were killed during the shooting, 26 more were injured.
After these events, some American politicians suggested that the attacks could be, in particular, Fortnite and Call of Duty.
