Bill Gates says US president Donald Trump asked if HIV and HPV were the same thing

Bill Gates says US president Donald Trump asked if HIV and HPV were the same thing

"Bill Gates, the billionaire businessman and founder of Microsoft, mocked President Donald Trump at a talk before his foundation, claiming the president repeatedly asked him the difference between HIV and HPV and made his wife uncomfortable".

"He wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV", Gates says in the video. "So I was able to explain that those things are rarely confused with each other".

Exclusive footage obtained by All In. One of the striking points in the clips was that Gates recalled details about his daughter's meeting with the POTUS back in December 2016. More tonight at 8PM ET.

Mr Gates explained that when he saw him in March 2017 in the White House, 'he asked me if vaccines weren't a bad thing.

"And I said, 'no, that's a dead end. Melinda [Gates's wife] didn't like that too well".

About 20 minutes after talking to Jennifer at the event, Gates said Trump reappeared in style, flying in on a helicopter to the same place he had just been.

Jennifer Gates and her parents, Bill and Melinda Gates, listen to former U.S. President Barack Obama speak at the Gates Foundation Inaugural Goalkeepers event on September 20, 2017 in New York City. "So clearly he'd been driven away but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter". HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, is a virus that depresses the immune system and can lead to the onset of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition that caused one million deaths in 2016, according to the United Nations. The latter is a sexually transmitted infection also known as human papillomavirus that is responsible for causing genital warts or cervical cancer. "He said, 'Trump hears that you don't like what Trump is doing.' And I thought, 'Wow, but you are Trump'". Um, YEAH! If Trump doesn't know the difference between HPV and HIV, can you imagine how many other things the president would have needed to be schooled about? Gates told Stat News in April that he rejected the proposal, as it wouldn't be a good use of his time.

Mr Gates said last month that Mr Trump was "super interested" in the idea of a universal flu vaccine.
