Newly-elected POTUS Donald Trump has been quite vocal in his condemnation against China during his campaign, earning him a significant number of critics in the country.
But while his campaign rhetoric has sparked indignation among Chinese netizens, a video of the billionaire president-elect’s granddaughter Arabella Kushner is doing the opposite by being a total charm, the Straits Times reported.
The adorable five-year-old daughter of Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner won hearts in China after a February video of her reciting ancient Chinese poetry went viral on social media. First uploaded on Ivanka’s Instagram account on February 10, the video was meant to celebrate the start of the Chinese Year of the Monkey.
Arabella’s performance became a trending topic on Sina Weibo right after Trump’s victory on Wednesday. According to Global Times, Chinese netizens praised Arabella as “surprisingly cute and impressive.” The young girl, who reportedly has been studying Chinese since she was 18 months old, recited works by famed Chinese poets such as Li Bai.
