A video of Donald Trump's five-year-old granddaughter Arabella Kushner reciting a Mandarin poem that is of the Tang dynasty vintage has received thousands of views on Chinese microblogging sites after the poll results on 8 November. In the videos, Kushner is dressed in a red tutu and a traditional qipao.
Two clips of Trump's granddaughter during her Mandarin classes were uploaded to the internet by her mother, Ivanka Trump, toward the end of last year and the beginning of this year, although only now have they captured the attention of Chinese Internet users. Xinhua news agency reported that users expressed their surprise at her level of Mandarin. Many of the viewers on Weibo said she was "adorable".
Amid questions over the future of US-China relations following the rise to power of Trump, who has harshly criticised the Asian giant during his campaign for alleged currency manipulation, those viewers said the videos of Kushner were evidence of their country's global stature and importance.
