Gates said that he does not agree with Warren’s stance, that billionaires should not exist at all in the united states. “Maybe I’m just biased to think that if you have a business that is very valuable, and that at least a part of it, you should be able to get a little bit of consumption, and the balance is to do philanthropic things,” Gates continued.
