Her children Arabella, Joseph, and James are the light of her life.

She’s made a name for herself thanks to her business savvy, but now it’s her oldest child, Arabella, who is making headlines.

A video of the girl reciting poetry in Mandarin has left social media buzzing.

Check it out:

The video, which was posted to Trump’s Instagram nine months ago, reads:

“Arabella wanted to have a pre-bedtime #ChineseNewYear party this past Sunday evening. She got all dressed up and performed songs and poems for Jared, Joseph and me. It was pretty adorable ?#yearofthemonkey#happyChineseNewYear”

The video has now resurfaced and gone viral since Donald Trump’s election.

In the clip, Arabella can be seen wearing Chinese clothing while decorations for the Chinese New Year hang in the background.

The poem she is reciting is Li Shen’s “Sympathy for the Peasants,” according to BuzzFeed, who report she’s taking Mandarin lessons from her nanny.

The child’s efforts were a massive hit on Chinese social media. Many posted comments on the video in both Chinese and English:

“从微博来的 nice mandarin can’t wait to see her growth in the future”

Another wrote:

“微博观光团+1 哈哈哈 soooooo adorable!!!!”


“么么哒 sooo cute!”

But many others sought to criticize the little girl, pointing fingers to President-elect Trump’s past comments on China.

As a candidate, he often accused China of taking U.S. jobs, and some anti-Trump readers were quick to point that out.

One user addressed a comment to Ivanka:

“I thought your dad hated everything that isn’t from America?”

Another user insinuated that the Trump family is far more interested in doing business with China than they let on:

“These people know China is a huge market in the future, so learning Chinese is just a preparation for future business development.”

Another user posted this message:

“I feel bad because she has this stupid family.”


“Donald Trump’s probably gonna deport Chinese people as well.”

Regardless of the haters, Arabella seems to have won over many more hearts than she’s lost.

As for Ivanka, she has completely ignored the criticism.
