Elizabeth Warren Offers to Meet With Bill Gates and Talk Wealth Tax After His Criticisms
Gates said, "If I had to pay $20 billion, it's fine. But when you say I should pay $100 billion, then I'm starting to do a little math about what I have left over."

When asked if he would meet with Warren, Gates responded, "I'm not sure how open minded she is - or that she'd even be willing to sit down with somebody who has large amounts of money."

The 2020 candidate herself responded on Twitter tonight, "I'm always happy to meet with people, even if we have different views. @BillGates, if we get the chance, I'd love to explain exactly how much you'd pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $100 billion.)"

He is fine with paying 20 billion but not 100 million?

Then I have a win-win solution, let him pay 20 billion!
