Taking a lyric out of Taylor Swift's songbook, President Donald Trump told business leaders on Monday that in order to avoid facing tax burdens, "All you have to do is stay."
Trump built his campaign around domestic job creation and days into his presidency, he's hammered down on this point.
But many American businesses' decisions to add or preserve positions in the country were part of earlier plans. So how much credit he can actually take for these companies deciding to up their investments in the U.S. isn't clear.
American companies are feeling pressure by Trump to bring back jobs from overseas and hire more workers domestically. He's let companies know strengthening America's workforce is his top priority.
On Monday, Trump met with business leaders, firmly warning them to keep jobs stateside. And the push is not limited to any one sector. It affects automakers, utilities, grocers, retailers, and tech.
WATCH | In the meeting, Trump told business execs, "We want to start making our products again. We don't want to bring them in, we want to make them here."
Since being elected, Trump has repeatedly singled out businesses like Ford and Walmart for their overseas investment plans. Some are updating their plans; others are sticking to their own strategies. Here's a look at where some brands stand.
Amazon will add 100,000 new jobs in the U.S. in the next 18 months. But the news isn't entirely surprising given its recent moves into grocery, fashion, and video.
Alibaba said the Chinese e-commerce giant would create one million jobs in the U.S. But these wouldn't be traditional jobs, rather businesses setting up online shops on Alibaba.
Bayer and Monsanto
The two pledged to inject $8 billion and add 3,000 jobs in the U.S., if their $66 billion mega-merger goes through. It had been criticized because it would take thousands of jobs abroad.
The auto sector's global nature makes it a tricky target to criticize. BMW, for example, is expanding in Mexico, but cars being built there would likely take German jobs, not American.
General Motors (GM)
GM has pledged to add or save 2,000 jobs in the U.S. Things could get awkward, though, because the nation's largest automaker still carried out earlier announced job cut plans.
Ford (and Fiat)
Several carmakers have announced expansion plans in the U.S. after the president called them out. Ford canceled plans to expand in Mexico and is instead adding 700 new jobs in Michigan.
Thank you to Ford for scrapping a new plant in Mexico and creating 700 new jobs in the U.S. This is just the beginning - much more to follow— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 4, 2017
Trump thanked Ford for reversing course and has used them as an example for other brands.
Hyundai and Kia
The South Korean auto brands are both investing more in America and have floated the idea of opening a new plant. Hyundai will invest $3 billion in the U.S. over the next couple years.
In the tech world...
IBM has promised to hire 25,000 American tech workers in the next four years. However, those plans, as CEO Ginni Rometty has outlined, are in response to an "evolving" workforce.
Kroger and Walmart
Kroger will fill 10,000 posts this year. But as Reuters notes, these are part of a routine hiring strategy. Walmart will hire 12,000 new workers (also as part of normal hiring plans).
Thank you to General Motors and Walmart for starting the big jobs push back into the U.S.!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 17, 2017
That said, Walmart has since revealed layoffs affecting 1,000 workers at its headquarters.
After Trump called out Lockheed Martin over the cost of one of its new fighter jets, the company said it would add 1,800 jobs in Texas.
Sprint and SoftBank
Sprint said it will hire 5,000 U.S. workers. As Fortune notes, the hires are part of an already planned $50 billion U.S. investment by SoftBank Group, which owns a stake in Sprint.
The parent company of appliance maker Carrier has said it will keep jobs in Indiana, rather than move them to Mexico. That said, 700 U.S. workers are still expected to lose their jobs.
