SAN FRANCISCO — The Japanese business mogul Masayoshi Son pledged to President-elect Donald J. Trump nearly two weeks ago that he would invest in the United States and create about 50,000 jobs.

On Monday, Mr. Son’s conglomerate, SoftBank, took what it described as the first step in fulfilling that commitment.

By leading a $1.2 billion investment in OneWeb, which makes satellites for internet access, SoftBank said it was continuing to invest in new technology and supporting job creation in the United States. In their announcement, SoftBank and OneWeb said the investment would create nearly 3,000 jobs in the United States over four years.

“Earlier this month, I met with President-elect Trump and shared my commitment to investing and creating jobs in the U.S.,” Mr. Son said in a statement. “America has always been at the forefront of innovation and technological development, and we are thrilled to be playing a part in continuing to drive that growth as we work to create a truly globally connected ecosystem.”

Mr. Son, whose technology and telecommunications empire has made him one of Japan’s wealthiest men, has positioned himself as a prospective partner of the coming Trump administration by promising to help spur job growth.

At a meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan this month, Mr. Son pledged to invest $50 billion in the United States, which, by his reckoning, would create about 50,000 jobs. Mr. Trump has cited the pledge as a sign that he could persuade the private sector to lead improvements in the national economy.

Japanese Mogul Starts on Vow to Trump to Create 50,000 U.S. Jobs

It must be getting harder and harder for Trump critics to find fault with his saving American jobs…

I have a unique understanding of Japanese culture and can tell you that this is exquisitely rare for such a "deal" would be struck with a foreign[American] president-elect such as this…

It is true no Japanese mogul would have ever met with President-elect Obama out of deference to George W Bush whose father had been a great warrior...

Further, business moguls in Japan rarely, if ever, paid any mind to seeking an audience with Obama because Obama was viewed as harboring a disdain for American Exceptionalism, the ethos which has guided Japan since it's defeat in World War II…

An ethos constructed largely by the MacArthur constitution which saw new deal era egalitarianism combined with the morality of the Judeo-Christian ethos brought to imperial Japan and lead to Japan rising to the top of the world's economic ladder in a heretonow unprecedented fashion…

Aside: It's still remains of massive interest to me how a country so utterly bereft of hope whose infrastructure was in total ruin and her intellectual class was either dead or morally bereft would rise so quickly from the ashes and become a world leader within less than a generation of near utter and total annihilation of their imperial greatness...

And Japan would become [arguably] America's greatest ally on the worlds economic stage…
-----------------------
To the op: I can only say that I am again impressed by Donald trumps ability to influence behaviors and world events when he is not yet the president…

One could argue the release of hostages from Iran was a similar display of pre-presidential power but if memory serves the Iranians did not free the hostages until Reagan was sworn in…

Trump seems to be moving heaven and earth before his hand has even been put to the Bible…

This is a VERY exciting time to live and one can only hope more and more American jobs will be created in the years to come…

So here's to Mr. Son and to the 50,000 jobs he plans on creating in the greatest country in the world has ever seen…

It's refreshing to know that we will soon have a President that isn't a complete doormat.

This is the part I'm flabbergasted by.. George Bush senior was a great warrior? I'm not an American but I was under the impression that he was actually criticized for not being tough enough and even called a sissy by some of his critics?

Gotta love the honour of Japanese people though..

Japan overall got nervous with Trump talking about basically backing out of Japan. Japan needs the US, and the US does well with Japanese alliance and strategic location near China to stop them from dominating the entire east.

I think this is Japanese people showing the Don that they are not just some random crap southeast asian country with nothing but slaves to offer but rather a good partner to have. the TPP is gonna go up in flames and new deals are going to be made more equal..so it is in both the government and the corporate interests of Japan to do a bit of wheeling and dealing with the US now.

Gonna give this point to Trump. I still think he is a bag of fleas, but will give credit where do...now, if he doesn't demand a Trump casino in the center of Kyoto, I will be happy.

Umm...HW was an excellent aviator..

From wikipedia(not always a fan but am tired and I have a lot of gifts to wrap tomorrow)




Following the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, George HW Bush decided to join the US. Navy, so after graduating from Phillips Academy in 1942, he became a naval aviator at the age of 18.

After completing the 10-month course, he was commissioned as an ensign in the United States Naval Reserve at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi on June 9, 1943, just three days before his 19th birthday, which made him the youngest naval aviator to that date.

He was assigned to Torpedo Squadron (VT-51) as the photographic officer in September 1943. The following year, his squadron was based on USS San Jacinto as a member of Air Group 51, where his lanky physique earned him the nickname "Skin".

During this time, the task force was victorious in one of the largest air battles of World War II: the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

After Bush's promotion to Lieutenant on August 1, 1944, San Jacinto commenced operations against the Japanese in the Bonin Islands. Bush piloted one of four Grumman TBM Avenger aircraft from VT-51 that attacked the Japanese installations on Chichijima. His crew for the mission, which occurred on September 2, 1944, included Radioman Second Class John Delaney and Lieutenant Junior Grade William White.

During their attack, the Avengers encountered intense anti-aircraft fire; Bush's aircraft was hit by flak and his engine caught on fire. Despite his plane being on fire, Bush completed his attack and released bombs over his target, scoring several damaging hits.

With his engine ablaze, Bush flew several miles from the island, where he and one other crew member on the TBM Avenger bailed out of the aircraft; the other man's parachute did not open.

Bush waited for four hours in an inflated raft, while several fighters circled protectively overhead until he was rescued by the lifeguard submarine USS Finback.

For the next month he remained on Finback, and participated in the rescue of other pilots. Several of those shot down during the attack were executed and eaten by their captors.

George Bush in his Grumman TBM Avenger on the carrier USS San Jacinto in 1944 Bush subsequently returned to San Jacinto in November 1944 and participated in operations in the Philippines until his squadron was replaced and sent home to the United States.

Through 1944, he flew 58 combat missions for which he received the Distinguished Flying Cross, three Air Medals, and the Presidential Unit Citation awarded to San Jacinto.


If that is not a description of a warrior then I cannot help you…

The Japanese correctly identified George Herbert Walker Bush as a mighty warrior and always treated him with the utmost of respect befitting a warrior of such stature…

Thanks for posting that about Bush. I had never realized that this was part of his past, very interesting.

Great to see the Japanese working to make the best of the situation, its good PR for them, and will give them some advantages when it comes to cutting the new deals with the Trump Administration.

I had a lot of problems with Bush Senior... but there is no doubt he was not afraid to be where the rubber met the road.

Thank you, I didn't know that.

I wonder where I got the notion from.. I remember it distinctly though, a documentary maybe.. someone calling his manliness into question either during some election or when in office.

Weird.. maybe it's the Mandela Effect..

One thing to remember is that each well-paying job helps to create/support additional jobs in all the various infrastructures and sectors that they interact with in their personal and professional lives.

All someone in power had to do was ask for jobs and they will appear. (At this point it's still will, not did).

Someone should have done this sooner.

I did not know this.

"new deal era egalitarianism combined with the morality of the Judeo-Christian ..... lead to Japan rising to the top of the world's economic ladder in a heretonow unprecedented fashion… "

Well, just like many Americans, Japan doesn't understand that the Trump Revolution is about the final destruction of the New Deal. .... lol and multiple marriages and pussy grabbing is Judeo-Christian ethics?... what an upside down world we live in today

The Ambassador of Trumpism


Gingrich's definition of Trumpism is essentially a third attempt – after Ronald Reagan in 1980 and himself in 1994 – by conservatives to break the country cleanly away from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "New Deal" big-government mindset. He sees it as a push to decentralize the many functions and services that have been guided by elites in Washington and return power and decision-making to the populace outside of the nation's capital. What makes such profound change possible this time? Trump is as disruptive as President Andrew Jackson, as energetic as President Theodore Roosevelt and as effective a salesman as P.T. Barnum, Gingrich says.


And the New Deal egalitarianism improved their longevity....

The New Deal's Unsung Victory "Policies that produce more egalitarian societies may explain profound health improvements."


In the United States, meanwhile, the New Deal drive to greater equality shifted into reverse in the 1970s and has been speeding backwards ever since. Americans have paid for that reversal. In 2004, according to U.N. data, the people of the United States ranked 30th in global life expectancy. The Japanese ranked first.


Won't Mr. Son be surprised when he finds out America is going backward!

You had me going till the Reagan bit. The Iran Hostages were arranged by the "great warrior" GHW Bush to ensure old Ronny was elected. The "October Surprise".

a reply to: ChristosteroneI would be very cynical for a start of their intentions. In the UK we had the same BS from an Indian company when they took over our steel industry. When the going got slightly tough the Indians packed up shop and left our steel industry in tatters.
