On Thursday night, Bill Gates revealed his daughter’s “smart girl” cred, admitting that she has the potential to be a “great” president.
Gates said that he had “the honor of having my daughter’s back” as he was “not only her mentor, but also her inspiration.”
Gates said in a statement that she “has a gift for understanding and taking care of people.
She’s been able to bring a lot of value to her dad, and I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together.”
Gates made the comments on his Twitter account, along with a link to his book, The Gates Memo.
He continued, “My daughter is a smart girl who is doing amazing things in the world.
She is a great leader, and my hope is that she will inspire the next generation of leaders.”
The announcement came a day after Bill Gates was forced to apologize to the President Trump for comments he made during a phone call in which he said the United States is not a superpower, but a country with a “huge” economy.
He was later forced to clarify his comments, saying that “we are a country of entrepreneurs.”
In an interview with ABC News, Gates said his daughter has “a very strong sense of who she is and what she wants to do.”
“She is the kind of person who wants to be on the front lines, and she’s also very smart,” he said.
“She’s smart enough to know that if you’re a young woman, you can have that opportunity.”
Gates’ daughter, Grace, is currently in high school, but has been known to play video games on her laptop while she studies.
“We have the greatest economy in the history of the world,” Gates said.
He said he is “looking forward to the next chapter of her life.”
He added, “She will always be a great kid, but she will be a very smart kid.”
Gates and the president have a history of controversial comments.
Gates was famously fired from Microsoft for making sexist comments, as well as for not supporting the Affordable Care Act.
He also was fired from the company after criticizing the company for having a “very aggressive” stance on artificial intelligence.
