Trump-China roundup: Anbang Insurance, Jack Ma, and talk of war

A weekly highlight of Trump-related news on SupChina.

Monday: A New York Times story was released over the weekend documenting the dealings of Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, with the shadowy Anbang Insurance Group in China.

Tuesday: The president-elect met with Alibaba executive Jack Ma, who vowed that his company would create 1 million new jobs in the U.S.

Wednesday: Trump’s 45 pending trademark applications in China “risk a constitutional crisis,” according to prominent ethics experts. Also noted: Beijing is willing to arrange meetings with Trump’s team at the World Economic Forum later this month.

Thursday: Rex Tillerson, Trump’s nominee for U.S. secretary of state, attracted criticism from Chinese state media for his remarks on the South China Sea. Also noted: reactions from Chinese social media to Trump’s first press conference since the election.

Friday: Beijing’s backlash to Rex Tillerson’s comments continued. An editorial in the state-run Global Times belittled Tillerson’s suggestion to cut off China’s access to islands it claims in the South China Sea. The China Daily warned of a “devastating confrontation” if Tillerson carries through on his promises.
