Ivanka Trump is fairly popular in the United States, but did you know she is called the “goddess Yi Wan Ka” Trump in China?
According to The New York Times, “[she] is widely adored. Her lavish lifestyle and business acumen resonate with young professionals who are hungry for fame and fortune.”
Young Chinese women look up to Ivanka as a leader and a symbol of power and ambition.
It helps that her children and husband Jared Kushner are particularly interested in the country.
On Wednesday, Ivanka shared a photo of her 1-year-old son, Theodore, playing with building blocks with Chinese letters on them, showing he’s already familiar with the language.
Ivanka’s 5-year-old daughter, Arabella, has been a superstar in China ever since a viral video of her speaking Mandarin gained nearly 100 million views.
She followed it up with a song in February celebrating Chinese New Year.
Ivanka and Arabella were both invited to the Chinese embassy in Washington recently, where they watched musicians perform onstage.
