Was Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates delivering an inspiring compliment or a veiled threat? 

  • President John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy was assassinated on November 23rd 1963.
  • Kennedy’s presidency is known as a turbulent time, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the establishment of the Peace Corps, developments in the Space Race, the building of the Berlin Wall, the Trade Expansion Act to lower tariffs, and the Civil Rights Movement.
  • Kennedy was best known for challenging the deeply rooted military industrial complex and old guard political elite.

(WASHINGTON, DC) Microsoft founder Bill Gates said during a Tuesday morning interview on CNBC that he is optimistic for Donald Trump’s presidency.

“A lot of his message has been about where he sees things not as good as he’d like,” the billionaire philanthropist explained.

“But 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, other health breakthroughs, finishing Polio, or in this energy space — there can be a very upbeat message that his administration is going to organize.”

Gates added that Trump has pledged “to get behind” repealing “regulatory barriers” hindering American innovation, specifically in the technology and energy sectors.
