Arabella had already become an internet superstar in China after [Ivanka] Trump posted online videos of her reciting a classical 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.
NBC also pointed out how state-run press outlets have covered Ms. Trump: “China’s official news agency Xinhua has described Trump as ‘capable and stylish,’ and the Communist Party’s flagship newspaper, The People’s Daily, called her ‘elegant and sociable.'” NBC later quoted street interviews of Chinese citizens in Beijing, who all gushed over Ivanka.
