Washington - Tech billionaire Bill Gates is meeting President Donald Trump to discuss progress in programmes for global health and development as well as domestic education.

Gates, who as the co-founder of Microsoft is the world's wealthiest man, will highlight the "indispensable role that the United States has played in achieving these gains," his foundation said in a statement.
