President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday selected a political ally with close ties to China as ambassador to Beijing, stressed his determination to create U.S. jobs and revealed he consulted with Barack Obama on his cabinet picks.On Wednesday, Trump dangled potentially welcome news for Beijing: his pick of Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, who has close ties to Chinese President Xi Jinping dating back to the mid-1980s, as ambassador to China.Trump boasted of securing a $50 billion Japanese investment from SoftBank to create 50,000 American jobs and his intervention last week to save hundreds of manufacturing jobs from leaving Indiana for Mexico.The latest target of Trump's fury on Twitter, meanwhile, was a union official who said the president-elect had fallen short on campaign promises to keep factory jobs in the U.S. state of Indiana.Jones told U.S. media that the actual number of jobs that would stay stateside thanks to the president-elect was 800 -- significantly less than the 1,100 Trump said would remain when he spoke at the Carrier factory last week.
