Amazon has changed the retail world forever. The way consumers now buy and order products online has shown an increase in demand by consumers across the globe. However, Amazon may be getting some stiffer competition pretty soon.
On Monday, President-elect Trump met with Jack Ma in Trump Tower. Ma is the executive chairman of Alibaba, a massive Chinese online retailer that competes with Amazon.
According to reports, Ma is interested in bringing $1 Million (yes, 1,000,000) new jobs into the United States.
“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 told reporters after the meeting.
Ma responded by saying “I think Mr. Trump is very smart and has an open mind. I told him of my ideas and how we can improve the trade with China especially small businesses.”
The meeting comes on the heels of other major job creation announcements from American auto makers who have now agreed to make plants in the U.S. instead of foreign markets.
If Trump is able to land the deal with Ma, one million more Americans could very soon be reaping the benefits.
What do you think of this? Are you excited at the chance for economic prosperity under a Trump administration? Do you think he will fulfill his economic promises?
