Trump reopens a seemingly settled video-game debate

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK - In the wake of the Florida school shooting, President Donald Trump is reviving an old debate over whether violent video games can trigger violent behavior.
    
There's just one problem: Roughly two decades of research has repeatedly failed to uncover any such link.
    
Trump plans to meet Thursday with representatives from the video game industry. His recent public comments referencing the "vicious" level of game and movie violence in the context of school safety show he is eager to explore the issue.
    
The Entertainment Software Association, the biggest video game trade group, said Monday that it will attend the meeting at the White House. A full list of attendees hasn't been released.
