Still not even President yet, Trump has created more jobs than Obama has in his 8 years of presidency. That has to leave Obama feeling pretty small. (VIDEO BELOW)
Today, President-elect Donald Trump said he had a “great meeting” with Alibaba executive chairman Jack Ma on Monday, when they discussed “1 million new U.S. jobs!”
Ma said that Alibaba’s expansion would focus on products like garments, wine and fruits, with a special focus on trade between the American Midwest and southeast Asia.
While an Alibaba spokesperson told sources before the meeting, the Chinese online retail giant company would create 1 million jobs over five years, Ma’s comments focused on supporting small businesses.
“Alibaba will create 1 million U.S. jobs by enabling 1 million American small businesses and farmers to sell American goods to China and Asian consumers on the Alibaba platform,” the company said in a statement.
Monday’s meeting was planned to focus on the Chinese e-commerce company’s U.S. expansion plans, according to spokespeople for both Alibaba and Trump. Ma had planned to be in New York on Monday, and the scheduling worked out for the meeting at Trump Tower.
“We had a great meeting, and a great, great entrepreneur, one of the best in the world, and he loves this country, and he loves China,” Trump said. “Jack and I are going to do some great things. Small business.” Ma stated, “Just focus on small business.” (VIDEO BELOW)
“We also think that the China and relationship should be strengthened — should be more friendly. The door is open … [for] discussing the relationship and trade issues. I think the president-elect is very smart, he’s very open-minded to listen. I told him my ideas about how to improve trade, especially to improve small business, cross border trade. … [Trump] has concerns, and he has solutions, that he wants to discuss with China and us how to do better. We’re focused on small business. We specifically talked about … supporting 1 million small businesses, especially in the Midwest of America. Small businesses on the platform selling products — agriculture products and America services — to China and Asia, because we’re pretty big in Asia. We had a very nice discussion.” Ma said in an interview.
Shares of Alibaba’s stock rose 1 percent on Monday.
