In another twist of irony, among the legions of media executives, sports franchises and others who have moved to “fire” Donald Trump, perhaps the cruelest axe he’s taken is from a man who is not only a Mexican, but a lot wealthier than Trump himself (that’s gotta hurt for the Donald!!). Carlos Slim, the Mexican billionaire, also owns Ora TV. The Mexican production company had been in contract with the Trump entertainment organization for a multi-million dollar project – now cancelled thanks to Trump’s foot-in-mouth disease.
Slim is the world’s richest man with a net worth of about $71 billion. Trump’s measly (by comparison) $4 billion net worth puts him at Number 405 on Forbes’ list of the world’s richest people. And if he keeps running his mouth like this and losing venture partners, that number could slip a lot further.
