The full clip of Gates on Chris Hayes shows that Trump seemed to know an bad lot about the Microsoft founder's daughter. "So clearly he had been driven away but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter".

Bill Gates has previously said President Donald Trump tried to hire him as the White House science adviser.

They met again in March past year at the White House. "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 effects of vaccines", Gates said."And I said, 'no, that's a dead end".

Gates is shown in the clip to say, "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". Robert F Kennedy Jr told the Guardian earlier this year that parents and children's health advocates felt "enormous betrayal and disappointment" at the decision.

To be clear, there is a huge difference between HPV and HIV. " as one of its common health questions".

Speaking before Gates Foundation staff, he revealed that the president (who once said evading sexually transmitted diseases in the 1990s was his own personal Vietnam) didn't know the difference between HIV, the virus that can lead to AIDS, and HPV, an infection that can cause genital warts and cancer.

I mean, it's just one letter difference.

The philanthropist also recounted an anecdote from the first time he met Trump, and the president referred to himself in the third person. He said: 'Trump hears that you don't like what Trump is doing.' 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.

Hayes said his show had sought comment from the Gates Foundation but has not yet received a response.
