BEIJING: The antagonism created by US president-elect Donald Trump's China bashing+ is being smothered by no one else but his 5-year-old granddaughter, Arabella. She has stolen millions of Chinese hearts by reciting Chinese poems, which was first posted by her mother, Ivanka, on Instagram during the Chinese New Year last February.
The video of Arabella's recitation has gone viral on the Chinese social media. A social media platform, which is run by Tencent, reported that the video has been downloaded more than one million times. Surprised web users are happily commenting on the little girl's Chinese learning ability. She is seen reciting a nursery rhyme, "The little rabbit is so white" and a poem, "Sympathy for peasants".
Despite Trump's criticism of China, including his accusation that the country was "stealing American jobs"+ , many Chinese are hoping that the little girl would play a role in softening her grandfather's attitude towards China. Comments like "super adorable" describing her are filling up the social media space.
In India-China relations, only China is benefitting with huge Yuge trade surplus with India....
candu with time
This little incidence should speak volume about China-- internally a timid country going gaga over a nursery rhyme sung by Trump''s grand daughter.
one can hate or love china, but cannot ignore them.
Same like modi, before elections different tune, once elected altogether a new one
whether us likes or not, china is getting more and more important in the world. sharing power peacefully with china is a smart choice.

Germany started delivering the 1st news in Sanskrit does that mean Germany is leaned towards India. If a child is learning a language that doesn''t mean his/her grand father also has interest in it.
This proves that China is really scared of Trump
