Bill Gates: Trump Could Be Like JFK 'Through Innovation'

CNBC's "Squawk Box"

By    |   Tuesday, 13 Dec 2016 02:14 PM

Bill Gates said he and President-elect Donald Trump have talked about innovation, and thinks that Trump could be like President John F. Kennedy in how he addresses innovating new solutions.

"A lot of his message has been about things where he sees things not as good as he'd like," Gates said Tuesday on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

"In the same way President Kennedy talked about the space mission and got the country behind that, I think that whether it's education or stopping epidemics, health breakthroughs, finishing polio, or in this energy space, there can be a very upbeat message that his administration is going to organize things, get rid of regulatory barriers, and have American leadership, through innovation, be one of the things he gets behind," Gates said.

"I'm sure there will be further conversations" between him and Trump, he said.

Gates mentioned in the interview that he is chairing a $1 billion fund to make clean energy more affordable.
