The winning streak doesn’t end.
I wouldn’t trust Alibaba any further than I could throw them, they’re likely just talking about distribution centers. Want to see how much profit there is, in ignoring intellectual property laws? Look no further, they’re the poster child for everything wrong with Chinese MFN status in my opinion.
I wonder why Alibaba didn’t discuss this with the current redident? /s
You know who Alibaba is? China's answer to Amazon which markets Chinese-manufactured products. Why give them any assistance?
Why not give Amazon, who’s owned by Compost Owner Bezos, some competition?
If you were China, wouldn’t you want more of your stuff delivered through Alibaba and less through Amazon?
“I wouldnt trust Alibaba any further than I could throw them, theyre likely just talking about distribution centers. Want to see how much profit there is, in ignoring intellectual property laws? Look no further, theyre the poster child for everything wrong with Chinese MFN status in my opinion.”
But, they have been thinking about this expansion for a couple of years. So, it’s probably just to get on the good side of Trump. At one point, they had selected office space in Silicon Valley - but that fell through.
I’m not China, and never will be, so no. That’s not to say I’m some sort of cheerleader for Amazon, either. Great selection, great price, great delivery but there’s something very rotten about their corporate leadership as well as how they treat their line employees.
Jeff is probably crapping in his pants right now.

You mean “farther” not “further”
Be careful. Yes they may provide jobs, but where will the profits go?
Follow the money!
One million jobs over 5 years.
You could say that about all our trade with China. I thought we were supposed to be bringing business back to the U.S., not give Chinese businesses yet another outlet to sell their goods here.
Yeah, alibaba is BAD news. Trump should get far away from those predator Chicoms. They are pumping garbage into the US thanks to a sweet heart air mail deal with USPS.
If you want to be pedantic about an idiom, by all means, feel free.
My money’s on Alibaba to win the national championship tonight. Woll Ty!
