At The New York Times's Dealbook conference on November 6, Gates said he shouldn't have met with Epstein, a financier who was allegedly a billionaire but had a net worth of about $560 million when he died.

"But when you say I should pay $100 billion, then I'm starting to do a little math about what I have left over", the world's richest man said, to laughter from the audience.

When asked whether he would consider sharing his ideas on taxes with Warren - including his view that raising taxes too high would put innovation and capital formation at risk in the U.S. - Gates questioned how open-minded she is.

Gates also expressed that he wasn't sure Warren would be willing to take the needs of people like him into account, or even hear them out.

Warren tweeted Wednesday night that she would meet with Gates to explain her wealth tax. "If it hadn't been for the antitrust case. we were so close, I was just too distracted". "If I'd had to have paid $20 billion in taxes - fine".

According to the original plan, households with net assets between $50 million (£39 million) and $1 billion (£780 million) will be subject to a 2% fee "wealth tax". "I've paid more than anyone in taxes", Gates said.

"I'm not going to make political declarations", he said. "I'd love somebody to find a middle ground approach [between the two parties] because ... the government does need more resources than it has today".

Billionaire Bill Gates said he shouldn't have met with Jeffrey Epstein, the accused sex trafficker who killed himself in prison on August 10.

Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates, founded the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 1997 with a focus on global health. Earlier this year, Gates called losing to Android his "greatest mistake ever", admitting that the loss was worth $400 billion.
