A television company controlled by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim has cancelled a project with Donald Trump after his comments insulting Mexicans.
This is the third company to cut ties with Trump, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the November 2016 presidential election. NBC and Univision also blacklisted Trump.
Ora TV, a production company co-founded by Slim and TV personality Larry King and funded by America Movil, cancelled a program it was working on with some of Trump’s companies, Slim’s spokesman and son-in-law Arturo Elias said.
“His statement was totally out of line…working with someone so closed-minded was not going to work,” Elias said, adding that the comments were racist.
