According to the Mexican's rep, Carlos is way too busy for the offer. "No creo que le interese. Esta muy ocupado sobre todo con Las Fundaciones y la labor social,'' he told TMZ

Rough translation: ''He’s not interested because his foundations and social work already keep him very busy.''

As for Slim's views on Trump, one of Slim's TV companies, Ora TV, followed in the footsteps of Univision and Televista, and cut ties with Trump on a pending project.
