From behind a paywall.

Translated by another site that isn't Welt Am Sonntag.

Whose content has been picked up by the Sun, the Daily Mail and Breitbart.

True. To be fair, the meat of the information is Gates's comment rather than any editorialization around that. I think he makes a sharp point by implying that the costs over time of sheltering further refugees will be greater than increasing foreign aid to the African continent to alleviate suffering. Especially considering the numbers of refugees and Europe's history in affected regions.
