Bill Gates says Donald Trump didn't know what HIV was

Bill Gates says Donald Trump didn't know what HIV was

In most cases, people with HPV do not have health problems, but the virus can cause cancer.

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.

Gates then described two meetings in Trump Tower in which he urged the president to become a leader in science and innovation, perhaps by accelerating progress toward an HIV vaccine.

Footage of Bill Gates talking about some of the more awkward conversations he's had with Donald Trump has been obtained by MSNBC.

"In both of those two meetings he asked me if vaccines were a bad thing", Gates said.

"He wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV", Gates says in the video.

Saskatchewan wants Ottawa to get tough with BC over Trans Mountain pipeline
His offer of covering losses caused by B.C.'s delaying of the project stands for other investors as well, he said. He declined to say what sort of financial help or how much financial aid Ottawa could provide to Kinder Morgan.

"Both times he wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV, so I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other", Gates recalled as the audience burst into laughter.

Several weeks ago, Gates told STAT News, that POTUS had offered him a job as the White House science adviser. "So clearly he'd been driven away but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter". "Melinda [Gates] didn't like that too much".

"So when I first talked to him it was actually kind of scary how much he knew about my daughter's appearance", he continued, as some members of the audience audibly groaned. "He said, 'Trump hears that you don't like what Trump is doing.' And I thought, 'Wow, but you are Trump'".

His revelations, which Chris Hayes has also tweeted about, have left people less than impressed, with one man replying: 'We all laugh, but I find nothing amusing about the fact we have a president who has the intellect of an 8 year old, if that'.

Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the name for a group of viruses that affect your skin and the moist membranes lining your body.

"HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI)". They are spread during sexual intercourse and skin-to-skin contact of the genital areas. HIV is a virus that can lead to the onset of AIDS, a condition that is often deadly, if left untreated. "So once you get HIV, you have it for life".
