Carlos Slim -- Mexican Billionaire Says 'No Gracias' To 'Apprentice'

EXCLUSIVE

Mexican mogul Carlos Slim sits on a telecommunications empire worth billions, making him the perfect replacement for Trump on "The Apprentice," but it’s not gonna happen, TMZ has learned.

Slim’s rep tells TMZ, "No creo que le interese. Esta muy ocupado sobre todo con Las Fundaciones y la labor social."

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 Televisa and cut ties with Trump on a pending project.

Trump … mas remedio tiene un muerto.
