He was quizzed on the differences between the two conditions during a get-together at Trump Tower, when Mr Gates mentioned that science and innovation were great things. Bill Gates, 62, relayed a story about how he's had two conversations with the president and both times the topic of vaccines came up.
"In both of those two meetings, he asked me if vaccines weren't a bad thing, because he was considering a commission to look into the ill effect of vaccines". However, a tweet from MSNBC host Chris Hayes, whose program "All In With Chris Hayes" shared the footage, gives us a clue: "Bill Gates says that in *both* meetings he had with Trump, Trump asked if HPV and HIV were the same thing", tweeted Hayes.
Although initially Gates thought Trump "was being super nice" to meet with his daughter Jennifer, ahead of his sit down with him, that opinion soon changed when the president started talking about Gates' daughter. "Melinda [Gates's wife] didn't like that too well", he quipped. "So clearly he'd been driven away but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter".
"I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other", said Gates.
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".
"When I first talked to him, it was actually kind of scary how much he knew about my daughter's appearance".
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'. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can't get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment.
"We're looking at a president that doesn't know the difference between HIV and HPV but he has memorized Bill Gates' daughter's appearance", said Tara Dowdell, a Democratic political strategist and former "Apprentice" participant. The subject of their conversation was (surprise, surprise) sexually transmitted diseases. 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. "So once you get HIV, you have it for life".
