Newly Uncovered Video Shows Bill Gates Explaining How Ignorant Trump Really Is
In a newly uncovered video obtained by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Microsoft founder Bill Gates told his foundation’s staff that President Donald Trump didn’t know the difference between HPV and HIV when they met with each other on two different occasions.
The clip below shows Gates telling the room that in two separate meetings with the president, specifically recalling a March 2017 meeting, Trump asked him about the difference between the two viruses.
“He wanted to know if there was a difference between HPV and HIV,” Gates said in the clip. “So I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other.”
HPV, the human papillomavirus, is an infection that can cause warts and lead to cervical cancer, while HIV, the human immunodeficiency virus, causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS.
The Microsoft founder also revealed that Trump referred to himself in the third person, telling him that “Trump hears that you don’t like what Trump is doing.”
Gates is one of the most prominent advocates for vaccines and curing diseases across the globe. It’s noteworthy that Trump didn’t know there was a difference between two very different diseases.
