Gates To Trump: Offered White House Position Is 'Not A Good Use Of My Time'

When Bill Gates brought up the vacant White House science adviser position to President Donald Trump in an Oval Office meeting last month, Trump immediately offered him the position—only to be rebuffed.

“That’s not a good use of my time,” Gates responded, according to an interview he did with medical site Stat published Monday.

2. Spanky would love to be the boss of someone who's much richer than he is.

But working in Trumpworld isn't a good use of anybody's time.

4. Bill Gates is too smart to work for Trump

Like most everyone with a brain, Mr. Gates can see that nearly everyone who comes into Trump's orbit gets slimed.

Why would Bill Gates do that?

In fact, why would anyone?
