Europe, China warn Trump of response if trade war with USA erupts

Trade data released by China's customs administration on Thursday shows its massive trade surplus with the USA -the root of Trump's ire-is far from finding a more even level.

Trump addresses link between violent video games, crime
The video includes scenes from franchises such as Call Of Duty , Sniper Elite , Fallout , Wolfenstein , and Dead By Daylight . Noah pointed out how weird it is that video games are only credited with influencing youths in this one specific way.

Wang went on to say that, "as the world's largest economies, China's and America's interests are deeply entwined" and that, if there is competition between the countries it must be "healthy and positive".
