Trump asked me twice the difference between HIV and HPV - Bill Gates

President Donald Trump and Bill Gates President Donald Trump and Bill Gates

In Gates' most recent meeting with Trump, which happened two months ago in March, Trump offered the Microsoft founder the position of White House science adviser, Gates told STAT News in an interview. But you're Trump?' So I didn't know if the third-party form was what was expected.

The clip 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.

While speaking at an event at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the tech guru and billionaire philanthropist said that the U.S. president inquired about the difference between HIV and HPV on two separate occasions. In the footage aired Thursday night on MSNBC, Gates noted that when he first met Trump in late 2016, it was "kind of scary" how much Trump seemed to know about his adult daughter Jennifer's appearance.

Trump had encountered Gates's daughter Jennifer, now 22, at a horse show in Florida.

He also said Donald Trump had asked him if vaccines were bad for consumption, that he was exploring forming a commission to look into the "ill effects of vaccines". "Melinda didn't like that too well", he said.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would pay off Nigeria's $76 million debt to Japan, over a 20-year period, beginning in 2018. And I said no, that's a dead end, that would be a bad thing, don't do that. In the video Gates explains (in a tone that expresses amused contempt) that he thought: "Wow, you're Trump".

HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, causes AIDS, while HPV is an infection that can cause cervical cancer.

The issue of vaccines remains a controversial topic in the U.S. as several lawmakers and members of the public believe they cause harm. However, Gates did go on to say he was not sure if Trump was actually serious about offering him the job or not.

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

That conversation broadly covered energy, health and education, 'big things you want to do that are big, an HIV vaccine that you could accelerate, ' said Mr Gates.

HPV is a very common sexually-transmitted disease that causes no symptoms in many people.
