Mexican billionaire rejects 'The Apprentice'
Carlos Slim is a Mexican business tycoon worth $80 billion
Slim, who sits on a telecommunications empire worth $80 billions, was approached by the show's organizers to become the perfect replacement for the US Presidential hopeful. But he said NO!
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.
Carlos isn't the first Latin American to descend from a Trump-related job. 'Devious Maids' star , Roselyn Sanchez quit as host of the Miss USA pageant after Trump's racist comment on Mexican-Americans in his presidential announcement on June 25.
