MSNBC’s Chris Hayes posted an exclusive video clip Thursday afternoon showing philanthropist and Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, revealing that President Donald Trump asked him at two separate meetings if HIV and HPV were the same thing.
“Bill Gates says that in *both* meetings he had with Trump, Trump asked if HPV and HIV were the same thing,” Hayes tweeted.

“He wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV,” Gates says in the video. “So I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other.”
The audience can be seen bursting into laughter.
HIV is the virus that causes the disease known as AIDS. HPV refers to the human papillomavirus, which can cause genital warts and cancer.
In a second clip, Bill Gates describes the moment he first walked into the room to meet with Trump: “When I walked in, his first sentence kind of threw me off, he said: ‘Trump hears that you don’t like what Trump is doing.’ And I thought, ‘Wow, but you’re Trump.’ ”
