Bill Gates really warmed up to President-Elect Donald Trump after a phone call between the two. This was, surprisingly, the first time they had ever spoken together, and Gates was very impressed with Trump and the future prospects of the nation.
Trump has an opportunity to establish “American leadership through innovation,” Bill Gates said on Tuesday, according to CNBC.
“A lot of his message has been about … where he sees things not as good as he’d like,” the billionaire Microsoft co-founder stated.
“But in the same way President Kennedy talked about the space mission and got the country behind that,” Gates continued, “I think whether it’s education or stopping epidemics … [or] in this energy space, there can be a very upbeat message that [Trump’s] administration [is] going to organize things, get rid of regulatory barriers, and have American leadership through innovation.”
Gates said he recently spoke on the phone with Trump, and discussed the power of innovation. “Of course, my whole career has been along those lines. And he was interested in listening to that. And I’m sure there will be further conversation.”
