This is the Clip of Violent Video Games Trump Showed During His Meeting Today

Scenes from Call of Duty, Dead By Daylight, Wolfenstein, and more.

As reported earlier, President Donald Trump began his meeting to discuss violent video games in relation to gun violence with a minute and half clip of violent scenes from various video games. The White House has uploaded the clip to its official YouTube account as an unlisted video.

The montage, titled "Violence in Video Games" features second long clips from various games such as the Call of Duty series, Fallout 4, Sniper Elite 4, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Dead By Daylight, The Evil Within, as well as moments from other games. After the montage finished, Trump reportedly told those in attendance, "This is violent isn't it?"

The montage was part of Trump's meeting today with members of the video game industry, as well as policymakers and politicians in Washington D.C. This includes Senators like Florida Republican Marco Rubio, and media watchdogs like Media Research Council president Brent Bozell.

Scenes from the montage of video game clips include characters getting shot, stabbed, decapitated, and in one scene, a character is placed onto a meat hook. The clips appear to have been gathered from various YouTube clips.

The meeting today was described as "contentious" by those who attended, with Trump open to finding solutions to a weeklong campaign in which he's placed blame on violent video games for gun violence. This follows the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead.

While no policies came from the meeting, Trump was reportedly told by some anti-video game watchdogs to consider video games like he would "tobacco and liquor" and regulate accordingly.
