Donald Trump might have made some enemies in China, but his granddaughter continues to win hearts with her latest viral Chinese song.
Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, posted a timely video on Instagram featuring her daughter Arabella Kushner singing a song for Chinese New Year.
The video has been subsequently reposted on Weibo by the state-run Global Times, and has been viewed 18 million times already, less than 24 hours after the Ivanka Trump's original Instagram post.
In the video, Arabella sings a greeting in Mandarin, set to the tune of "Oh My Darling, Clementine."
Her lyrics say: "Happy New Year, happy New Year, happy New Year everyone! We're singing and we're dancing, happy New Year everyone!"
Arabella's last Chinese poem posted on Instagram similarly went viral in China.

Some wondered if Arabella was forced to stage the song.

On Wednesday, Ivanka Trump brought Arabella to a Chinese embassy party in Washington to celebrate the Lunar New Year:
