Trump didn't know the difference between HIV and HPV - Bill Gates (video)

Bill Gates has spilled the beans during a gathering of the Gates Foundation recently, on what Trump was like in meetings with Gates (video below). At one point Gates described a meeting thus:
The Microsoft co-founder was telling the crowd about a meeting at Trump Tower during the presidential transition and another other at the White House in 2017, The Hill reported.

 "Both times he wanted to know if there was a difference between HPV and HIV," Gates said, according to the footage shown on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes." "So I was able to explain that those were rarely confused with each other." Newsmax
Yes folks, not that we didn't know this, but Trump has proven himself yet again to be an ignorant buffoon. Just when you think there couldn't be anything else from this man that would shock you.....

BTW for those interested, the HPV vaccine was in fact invented in Australia by Professor Ian Fraser, who was able to see his idea in the 80's come to fruition and use across the world. He gave the first vaccine injection himself in Australia to a Queensland school girl. Australia was the first country in the world to include the HPV vaccine in it's vaccine schedule, and today they're even talking about the eradication of cervical cancer being possible in Australia. In 2013 the then Labor gov included boys in the vaccination too.

To me it was like a miracle vaccine. At one point my late wife had a small dose of cervical cancer which they caught in time and were able to treat effectively. But that didn't change that it was the big "C" word and all the worry and anxiety it caused at the time for the family. 

But I don't have to worry about my daughter now (27) who was immunised early on as a school girl. To think that the leader of the free world knows nothing about this beggars belief.
