Donald Trump says his son Barron, 11, watches movies and TV shows that are 'so violent'
President Trump said he is shocked by some of the shows his son Barron watches

‘It’s so incredible, I see it, I get to see things you’d be amazed at

‘I have a very young son. I look at some of the things he is watching and I say ‘How is that possible?’ and I think you maybe have to take a look at it.

‘You rate movies for different things, maybe you have to rate them for terror, what they’re doing and what they’re all about.

‘Its hard to believe that for a percentage of children this doesn’t have an impact on their thought process.’

Trump previously blamed violent media for school shootings like the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Fl., that killed 17.
