Billionaire investor Icahn says 'no' to Trump's Treasury offer

Billionaire activist-investor Carl Icahn gives an interview on FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto show in New YorkBillionaire investor Carl Icahn said thanks but no thanks when real estate mogul turned Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump floated his name for U.S. Treasury secretary. “I am flattered but do not get up early enough in the morning to accept this opportunity,” Icahn, 79, said in a public statement one day after Trump, 69, told cable station MSNBC that Icahn could be a dream Treasury pick if he wins the White House in the 2016 presidential election. This may be music to Icahn’s ears after the man who commands the attention of financial markets and has long tangled with corporate chief executives himself predicted an eventual stock market sell off after years of gains fueled by low interest rates.
