Bill Gates announces he’s stepping down from Microsoft’s board to focus on his philanthropic efforts.

Microsoft announced on Friday that Bill Gates is leaving the board, effective Friday. Gates is also stepping down from his position on the board of Berkshire Hathaway.

“I have made the decision to step down from both of the public boards on which I serve – Microsoft and Berkshire Hathaway – to dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including global health and development, education, and my increasing engagement in tackling climate change,” Gates said on LinkedIn. “The leadership at the Berkshire companies and Microsoft has never been stronger, so the time is right to take this step.”

“With respect to Microsoft, stepping down from the board in no way means stepping away from the company,” Gates said. “Microsoft will always be an important part of my life’s work and I will continue to be engaged with Satya and the technical leadership to help shape the vision and achieve the company’s ambitious goals. I feel more optimistic than ever about the progress the company is making and how it can continue to benefit the world.”

Gates co-founded Microsoft in 1975 with Paul Allen, who died in 2018. Gates was CEO until 2000 when Steve Ballmer took over the role. Microsoft’s current CEO, Satya Nadella, took over in 2014. Gates was director of the board at Microsoft until 2014 but began dedicating more of his time to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2008.

  1. Do you want to know why Bill Gates is stepping down? It’s because the criminals are being exposed for their activity in financial markets, and illegal trafficking. There’s plenty more CEOs stepping down, too

  2. Don’t y’all see???? He is the big player in this whole pandemic roll out. It’s an ugly dark agenda.
    It didn’t take long for me to learn he was the collaborator for the Coronavirus “vaccine” mRNA-1273

    I can link him to every single aspect of this that started years ago! Long before the Event 201.
    Their plan is not forced vaccine, but to scare people so bad that they will demand the vaccine. People are already hysterical! It needs to get worse, before they roll it out.

    Is the virus real? Probably, but – it doesn’t matter! What matters is the people’s reaction so they can get the vaccine injected in everyone. This cocktail in the vaccine will allow 5G to make slaves out of us and we won’t even be aware of it! The vaccine will cause us to immediately lose our critical thinking skills and reasoning.
    Is this a conspiracy? Of course it is!! Is it a theory? No!

    This is about trans humanism. The vaccine is made at a company called Moderna and the vaccine is mRNA- 1273 Bill Gates is a collaborator.
    So, their “Modern RNA” will change all humanity.
    Please watch So you understand what this means.

    For those that don’t know – RNA is the counterpart of DNA. they will use oligonucleotide to attach “digitally”. The vaccine will modify the DNA. For control purposes.
    Once that DNA is mutated we are hybrids. That’s what Satan wants.
    We will no longer have the God given (breath of life) DNA!!!
    This is called transhumanism.
    Only a couple years ago we all thought this to be only SiFi stuff- not possible. Our technology is already far beyond this!!

    What happens next? We will be like “ in the days of Noah”

    It’s about to get much worse!
    Maranatha! 🙏☝🏼🙏

  3. What factual information do some of yall have to be so angry at Bill Gates? User made conspiracy theories video uploads dont count.

  4. Is Bill Gates about to disappear from public life? Is he worried about being lynched over his preprepared Corona "vaccine" and the fake outbreak?

  5. The CEO's of ALL OF THESE CORPORATIONS stepped down just as the stock market crashed:
    Lockheed Martin
    victories Secret
    Harley davidson
    United Airlines
    Black Rock

    this is just a few of them, over 1,000 CEOs sold all their stock and disappeared in a poof of smoke right before corona virus went world wide, coincidence?
