Bill gates refused the post of adviser to trump science
The founder of Microsoft bill gates has refused the proposal of U.S. President Donald trump to make him head of science.
About this businessman said in an interview edition of Statnews.
He noted that he had discussed with the President to develop a universal flu vaccine, which gates intends to donate $ 12 million. Trump, in his words, very interested in the idea, called the head of the Department for control over products and medicines Scott Gotleib to ask that if such a vaccine.
“I said, “Maybe we should appoint an adviser on science?” In response, trump asked me if I wanted them to be. I explained that this is not the best use of my time,” — said gates.
The position of Advisor on science from 2009 to 2017 was held by John Holdren. After the administration of Barack Obama, trump did not appoint anyone on this position.
