Although America’s reaction towards Donald Trump’s presidential win wasn’t exactly harmonious, it looks like Asian countries like Japan are more than willing to welcome them with open arms.
According to a report from RocketNews24, Japanese netizens are surprisingly happy with the prospect of having Ivanka Trump as the next ambassador to Japan.
Let it be known that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s 35-year-old daughter has no prior experience to politics aside from what she has experienced during her father’s campaign period that lasted several months. Like her billionaire father, Ivanka spends the majority of her time running the family business after she decided to say goodbye to modelling.
However, it’s interesting to note that Japan’s prior ambassadors didn’t have impressive political resumes either. Former ambassador John Roos held small positions in the local government and was better known for his work as a technology lawyer. Current ambassador Caroline Kennedy came from a very political family but it doesn’t mean that she has held a position in office prior to her appointment. Caroline used to work as an attorney, editor, and writer.
This rumored position has not been confirmed by any reliable source but it certainly didn’t hinder Japanese netizens from giving out their thoughts.
“If this is true I take back all the bad things I said about Trump becoming president,” said one commenter.
“She’ll make Japan great again!” said another.
Aside from Ivanka, it looks like Japan has more to love about this family. Trump recently shared a video of her daughter, Arabella, singing to the viral Japanese “Pen Pineapple” song.
The video posted on Instagram has been viewed almost 600,000 times and has received thousands of positive comments from the Japanese community.
