“Ivanka Trump is fast becoming a cult figure for many in China, her popularity spiking so much there is already an online fan club dedicated to “Goddess Ivanka” with thousands of followers.”
Remember when the media experts said that Trump sent exactly the wrong message to China when Arabella sang a Chinese song for Xi.
“At the Mar-a-Lago summit between President Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping earlier this month, her 5-year-old daughter Arabella sang a traditional Chinese song to Xi and his wife. Trump posted the performance on her Twitter account and it has been watched by millions across China.
Arabella had already become an internet superstar in China after Trump posted online videos of her reciting a classical Chinese poem and singing a song she learned for Chinese New Year. It was seen as a touching gesture at a time when many in China are worried about President Trump’s China-bashing rhetoric.
“That was a boost for Chinese cultural nationalism,” added Hu, “because it shows that Chinese culture has an important place in international society.””
