Jack Ma's US jobs pledge: more PR than promise? BEIJING -- Alibaba founder Jack Ma and Donald Trump made headlines with the Chinese entrepreneur's attention-grabbing pledge to create one million U.S. jobs, but analysts say the move is more about generating good public relations than substance. "We don't have to take the one million job promise too seriously," Li said. "This is more made to relieve its PR pressure, so Alibaba won't become a target of attack after Trump takes office," Li added. "As Alibaba's counterfeits problem is indeed quite serious, it is an easy target."
