Trump Should Treat Women 'With More Respect', Say Bill and Melinda Gates

And Melinda Gates included a pointed remark for President Donald Trump, writing that the duty of a US president is to role model American values and that she wishes "our president would treat people, and especially women, with more respect when he speaks and tweets".

"The headlines are filled with very bad news", they write in the letter.

They expanded on some of those themes and fielded questions about other topics in the recent interview.

Melinda also adds that they work with thousands of partners who keep them "connected to the people we're trying to help".

Why are you really giving your money away - what's in it for you?

Yet others said the Gates' commitment to the approach will be tested by how they communicate going forward. The arrangement drew responses from all finished, including feedback from donor Melinda Gates, who disagreed with a "misinformed" way to deal with worldwide wellbeing and destitution financing. For instance, while running for president, Trump floated the idea of asking Gates to help close "that internet up in some way" to curb communications by terrorists online.

But for this year, the co-founders of the world's richest philanthropy have instead opted to answer a selection of critical and skeptical questions about the foundation's work and the power it wields. "I wish our president would treat people, and especially women, with more respect when he speaks and Tweets".

The Microsoft founder and billionaire addressed President Trump's U.S centric foreign policy, writing that "the America First worldview concerns me".

"I want to make it OK for women to talk about their real experience", she said.

Amazon are rumoured to be interested in acquiring the rights to Premier League football, which would be a first for the game. In 2015, the Premier League sold its most current round of TV rights packages, the details of which are a bit confusing.

Entryways, whose work at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation plans to diminish wellbeing disparities around the creating scene, said that Trump's proposed slices to global wellbeing programs leaves the US defenseless against wellbeing emergencies like quickly spreading pandemics.

Melinda Gates said they must work with the administration to garner as much as support as they can for policies that will benefit the most impoverished people in the world. Both of us love digging into the science behind our work.

While the letter attempts to address commonly asked criticism of the foundation, Bill and Melinda also put together a more lighthearted video that attempts to further humanize the ultra-wealthy pair.

A White House spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.

In his answer to the question 'How are President Trump's policies affecting your foundation's work, ' Gates also spoke about how American foreign aid has been instrumental in fighting disease and poverty around the world. "We keep talking to them because if the U.S. cuts back on its investments overseas, people in other countries will die, and Americans will be worse off".

Answering the question, Melinda Gates laid the answer out simply: "because they can do things no one else can".

The question of saving children versus overpopulation in poor countries is one that Melinda Gates said she and her husband asked themselves early in the foundation's history.

"It's always been important to us that we are equal partners in our foundation's work".

"Having a little bit of grist in the system is actually a good thing", she said.
