Should President Trump do something about the severe shortages of the Nintendo Classic Edition game console?
Last year, gamers rejoiced at news that Nintendo would finally release a low-cost retro console packed with classic 8-bit games. However, the company made such limited quantities for launch day (probably deliberately) that it instantly sold out everywhere. They apologized and promised a steady stream of product to come. Yet over two months later it is still nearly impossible to find, and gamers like me are fuming. There's no good reason to deprive consumers of these historically important games. And no excuse for production delays either. It's not like this is some cutting edge Apple product that is difficult to make! Nintendo chose not to take pre-orders for the Classic which would have given them some idea of how many to make. So they deserve all of the blame.

This situation is unfair and undemocratic! It's a slap in the face to the values of consumerism and materialism which have defined America for generations. I'm sure fans in Japan don't have this much trouble finding the console. What happened to putting America first? Many US gamers are disgruntled and fed up with Nintendo's tactics but have nowhere to turn for help.

However, since Trump has already been strong-arming companies to stay in America with some success, he could easily apply similar pressure to Nintendo, possibly imposing sanctions on the company unless it increases production of the Classic Edition to meet demand. At the very least he could send out some acrimonious tweets to raise awareness. Geeks are an underrepresented demographic whose needs have been ignored for too long. What do you think?
