In a video obtained by MSNBC, Gates revealed that on two occasions he met with Trump after the election, once at Trump Tower in December 2016 and then in March 2017 at the White House, Trump asked him if human immune deficiency virus and human papillomavirus were the same thing.

Cut Deadpool 2 Post-Credits Scene Might Go Too Far...naijacoolnews

As is standard with modern comic book movies, Deadpool 2 includes a bonus scene during the credits as a special treat for fans. According to the writers of the film, though, it's not the scene originally shot for the end of the movie. However, the initial plan just didn't sit well with audiences when tested.
According to Rhett Reese, one of the movie's writers, the Merc with a Mouth was going to use Cable's time travel abilities in one very interesting way. "Deadpool goes back and kills baby Hitler at the very end. That's what was supposed to happen," he tells UpRoxx. "We shot it and we put it in front of an audience. He's got the crib and he's standing in the German nursery and he's leaning over the crib to do it and there was kind of this, 'ohhhhh.' And we thought we don't want to leave the crowd on an 'ohhhhh.' So it ended up coming out."
