In essence, Alibaba head Jack Ma is playing informal China trade ambassador with president-elect Donald Trump.
As we all know, tensions about trade have been escalating between Trumpism and China. Trump continues to threaten to slap taxes on goods produced in China which are plopped back in the U.S. to be sold.
What members of the media are reporting is that today Ma is meeting with Trump in New York. He is expected to offer Trump the olive branch of 1 million new U.S. jobs created by Alibaba over the next five years. Here is the coverage the Drudge Report links to.
Call it Jobs Diplomacy. Jobs Talk is the language of Trumpism. That was The Donald's campaign promise. He is making it happen even before he is sworn in officially as president. America is already starting to look great, 11 days before the inauguration.
