'Scary' how much Trump knew about my daughter: Bill Gates

Adjust Comment Print

Bill Gates just told a hilarious yet disturbing story about two conversations with President Donald Trump where he didn't know that there was a difference between HIV and genital wart virus HPV. "And then, like 20 minutes later, he flew in in a helicopter to the same place. He said: 'Trump hears that you don't like what Trump is doing.' And I thought, 'Wow, but you're Trump, '" he said, drawing laughter from the audience.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates was subjected to two doses of President Donald Trump at his most annoying.

On both occasions, Trump asked Gates what the difference between HIV and HPV was.

Trump has many times indicated that he sides with the anti-vaccine cause, regularly tweeting about his concerns, bringing up the issue in a Republican primary debate, and even meeting with "anti-vaxxer" heroes such as Andrew Wakefield, the former British gastroenterologist who was struck off the United Kingdom medical register over his fraudulent 1998 research paper that sparked the anti-vaccine debate. "So I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other". "So clearly he had been driven away, and he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter". Gates then advised Trump to champion science and innovation. However, a tweet from MSNBC host Chris Hayes, whose program "All In With Chris Hayes" shared the footage, gives us a clue: "Bill Gates says that in *both* meetings he had with Trump, Trump asked if HPV and HIV were the same thing", tweeted Hayes.

HIV is the virus that causes the disease known as AIDS.

"In both of those two meetings, he asked me if vaccines weren't a bad thing, because he was considering a commission to look into the ill effects of vaccines", Gates said."And I said, 'no, that's a dead end". He said that Trump was "was being super nice" to his daughter and "So when I first talked to him, it was actually kind of scary how much he knew about my daughter's appearance", Gates said adding, "Melinda didn't like that too much". The virus is the most common STD.

AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is the name used to describe a number of potentially life-threatening infections and illnesses that happen when your immune system has been severely damaged by the HIV virus. There are many different types of HPV.

There's now no cure for HIV, but there are very effective drug treatments that enable most people with the virus to live a long and healthy life.
