- Bill Gates: EU must make it “more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes” while also relieving “enormous pressure” by sending foreign aid.
- Last year, Bill Gates called on America to open its doors to Syrian migrants.
BILL GATES has made a massive open-borders U-turn and urged Brussels to make it more “difficult” for migrants to reach Europe.
He had previously called on countries to take in more migrants but now appears to have completely reversed his view.
The Microsoft chief said instead of opening the European Union borders, Brussels should fix the push-factors at the source by sending more foreign aid.
He said: “On the one hand you want to demonstrate generosity and take in refugees, but the more generous you are, the more word gets around about this – which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa.
“[Germany cannot] take in the huge, massive number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe.”
He said instead the EU must make it “more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes” while also relieving “enormous pressure” by sending foreign aid.
Last year Mr Gates, who is worth an estimated 60 billion pounds, called on America to open its doors to Syrian migrants.
And he said Germany and Sweden were “to be congratulated” for opening its doors during the migrant crisis.
He said the USA “had the capacity” to follow suit, claiming: “The total number of refugees is not a world record.”
BILL GATES WEARS $10 CASIO WATCH, LOVES McDONALD’S AND BURGER KING, DIDN’T LET HIS THREE KIDS HAVE PHONES UNTIL THEY ARE 14

Read full story below:
Microsoft founder Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, says that he did not permit his children to own a mobile phone until they turned 14.
Gates made the revelation during an interview on Thursday with the British newspaper The Mirror.
Not only does Gates force his kids to wait until age 14 to get a smartphone, but he also limits the amount of time they could use them before going to bed.
Smartphones are also banned from the dinner table.
‘We often set a time after which there is no screen time and in their case that helps them get to sleep at a reasonable hour,’ the tech titan told The Mirror.
Gates and his wife, Melinda, are parents to Jennifer, 20; Rory, 17; and Phoebe, 14.
Despite the irony of Gates playing a pivotal role in the technological revolution of the digital age, he still thinks limits need to be in place for children.
‘You’re always looking at how it can be used in a great way – homework and staying in touch with friends – and also where it has gotten to excess,’ the Microsoft founder said of smartphones and social media.
…The Mirror reports that during its interview with Gates, he was wearing a Casio watch worth $10.
He also insists that he’s ‘big on pretty mainstream American hamburgers, McDonald’s, Burger King.’

Bill Gates says Trump has the opportunity to be like JFK
“But in the same way President Kennedy talked about the space mission and got the country behind that,” Gates continued, “I think whether it’s education or stopping epidemics … [or] in this energy space, there can be a very upbeat message that [Trump’s] administration [is] going to organize things, get rid of regulatory barriers, and have American leadership through innovation.”
Gates said he recently spoke on the phone with Trump, and discussed the power of innovation. “Of course, my whole career has been along those lines. And he was interested in listening to that. And I’m sure there will be further conversation.”
