Back in March of this year Forbes interviewed Carlos Slim, a Mexican Billionaire who is estimated to be the richest man in the world. The interview focuses on the brilliant philanthropic project of Mr. Slim to fund putting laptop computers in libraries and schools across Mexico, all free of charge to the students. To paraphrase Mr. Slim’s reasoning ‘why give them a book – why not give them a computer – teach them how to use it – now everyone is better off’.
The owner of Mexico’s top television network, Carlos Slim is so disturbed over Trumps hateful, public remarks he has cancelled a joint project that was to make millions for both Ora TV and Donal Trump.. Here’s the Forbes March interview:
Then there’s this comment in an article posted at Canonclast :
The latest development comes as a television company controlled by Mexican billionaire, Carlos Slim, has cancelled a project with Trump that was said to be worth millions.
Ora TV, the production company co-founded by Slim and TV personality Larry King and funded by Slim’s America Movil, had been working with Trump for several months on the project.
An Ora TV spokesperson released the following statement,
“Trump was totally out of line…working with someone so closed-minded was not going to work.”
He added that the comments were racist and hurtful.
Way to go Donald… hope you’re enjoying all that tax-free PAC money. Hope it lasts longer than Sarah’s did 🙂
