The president responded by offering Gates the job, he said.

In a follow-up tweet, Hayes said: "Bill Gates says that in *both* meetings he had with Trump, Trump asked if HPV and HIV were the same thing".

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.

Gates continued, saying that after meeting with his daughter, Trump wanted to stay true to his showmanship.

Gates said: "And then, like 20 minutes later, he flew in in a helicopter to the same place".

"So clearly he had been driven away, but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter", Gates said, mimicking the flight path of Trump's helicopter with his hand, eliciting another round of laughs.

That was not all. The tech giant told Politico in March that he planned to explain the importance of foreign aid to the president during their meeting.


Gates also said that at both meetings Trump had asked him about the negative effects of vaccines.

"And I thought, 'Wow, but you're Trump.' I didn't know the third-party form was always expected. 'Gates says, Gates knows that you're not doing things right, '" he joked.

Gates has also spoken out against Trump's "America First" policy. Gates said he told Trump not to chase such conspiracy theories and embrace science and innovation instead.

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. "So I was able to explain that those were rarely confused with each other". At this point the audience burst out laughing.

"That's not a good use of my time", Gates responded to the president, as relayed to STAT.

Gates said he wasn't sure if Trump was serious or if he was just "being friendly", but he turned down the offer.

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.
