Ma Trumps Trump Job Creation January 9, 2017

Posted by geoff in News.

Trump has had a string of companies/investors claim they’re going to bring jobs into the United States. That’s great news, but this one seems wrong by a factor of 100:

Alibaba job boom: Jack Ma chats with Trump about creating 1 million US jobs over 5 years

Walmart is the biggest private employer in the country, and it has 1.5 million employees. Saying you’re going to add 2/3 of a Walmart in 5 years seems a bit unrealistic.

But at least we’re arguing about how big job gains will be, rather than how big job losses were.

You may recall that Trump accused GM of building Chevy Cruze’s in Mexico and GM said “No Way!!” But yesterday the Daily Caller posted this:

GM Says All Chevy Cruzes Sold In The US Are Made Domestically, But That’s Not The Case
