Bill Gates Says Trump Didn't Know The Difference Between HPV And HIV

Bill Gates says President Trump didn’t know difference between HIV and HPV

We all know Donald Trump says a lot of stupid shit.

Bill Gates, the billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist, has claimed Donald Trump twice asked him the difference between HIV and HPV and knew a "scary" amount about Gates's daughter's looks.

"He wanted to know if there was a difference between HPV and HIV", Gates is seen saying, "so I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other". The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where he spends most of his time, has made it one of its core causes to tackle the spread of the virus.

Gates also revealed a how he and wife Melinda were creeped out by Trump seeming to be a little too attentive to their 22-year-old daughter Jennifer's looks. More tonight at 8PM ET.

They met again in March previous year at the White House. The topic of vaccines was also brought up in both.

"I'll take his framework and explain why things like health security and continued foreign aid, even in that narrow framework, where you give no credit for saving lives in Africa, kind of pure humanitarian things, even without that, this is money well spent", Gates told the outlet.

Trump since appears to have abandoned plans to investigate debunked theories linking childhood immunisations and autism.

To be clear, there is a huge difference between HPV and HIV.

"Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) attacks the immune system". MSNBC's All in With Chris Hayes uncovered the video of the Microsoft founder speaking to an audience at a Gates Foundation event.

For the record: HPV, or human papillomavirus, is a very common sexually transmitted disease that often causes no symptoms, but that can lead to an increased risk of cancer in some people.

I mean, it's just one letter difference. He said: 'Trump hears that you don't like what Trump is doing.' And I thought, 'Wow, but you're Trump.' I didn't know the third-party form was always expected. Gates told a crowd that Trump asked him on several occasions if HPV and HIV were the same things.

Trump has a now-familiar verbal tic of referring to himself in the third person. Representatives for Bill Gates did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

When the president asked him whether he wanted to serve as a "science adviser", Gates simply replied, "That's not a good use of my time".
