Billionaire Bill Gates questioned Senator Elizabeth Warren's tax plan and refused to say he would support her about President Donald Trump

Bill Gates refuses to say whether he would vote for Elizabeth Warren for Donald Trump because he accuses the 2020 democrat of wanting to tax him for & # 39; $ 100 billion & # 39; after JP Morgan's CEO accuses her of & # 39; incriminating & # 39; good luck

  • The Microsoft founder said he paid & # 39; more than anyone else in taxes & # 39;
  • Said it & # 39; fine & # 39; was to pay $ 20 billion
  • But if it's $ 100 billion, he & # 39; starts doing some math & # 39;
  • Warren offered to meet him and promised that it & # 39; not $ 100 billion & # 39; used to be
  • Also asked whether Warren & # 39; open-minded & # 39; used to be

Billionaire Bill Gates has the tax proposals of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren – and even offers the option to vote for Donald Trump if she is the Democratic candidate.

& # 39; I have paid more than $ 10 billion in taxes & # 39 ;, said the multi-billionaire at a New York Times DealBook conference Wednesday.

& # 39; I have paid more in taxes than anyone. If I had to pay $ 20 billion, it's fine, & # 39; continued the Microsoft founder and philanthropist.

"But if you say that I have to pay $ 100 billion, I will start making some math about what I have left &," he joked.

That amount is in the margin of Gates & # 39; total estimated net work. Then he added: & # 39; Sorry, I'm just joking & # 39; to the chuckling of a live audience.

Gates also wondered if Warren, who came to power after destroying large banks as a consumer advocate in the fight against bankruptcy reform, & # 39; broad-minded & # 39; was – a feature that the Democratic presidential candidate quickly disputed. He was asked if he wanted to talk to her.

& # 39; You know, I am not sure how broad-minded she is, or whether she would even be willing to sit down with someone, you know, who has large amounts of money, & # 39; said Gates, who comes in second place in the Forbes richest list. (The magazine estimates its wealth at $ 97 billion).

He avoided a direct question as to whether he would support Warren about Trump, saying that he was a candidate with a & # 39; more professional approach & # 39; then Trump will support. He said he hopes that the & # 39; more professional candidate is an eligible candidate & # 39 ;.

He said he was all for & # 39; super progressive tax systems & # 39; as long as they were transparent.

Warren responded on Twitter: & # 39; I am always happy to meet people, even though we have different views. @BillGates, if we get the chance, I would like to explain exactly how much you would pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $ 100 billion.).

Warren proposed a tax on multi-millionaires that would impose a 2 percent tax on people worth more than $ 50 million. She wants to levy a 6 percent wealth tax on assets with a value of $ 1 billion or more, and draws up a & # 39; Medicare for All & # 39; plan that costs $ 20 trillion.
