At least one member of the Trump family has managed to win the hearts of Chinese, even if President-elect Donald Trump did little to endear himself throughout his campaign.

An Instagram video of Trump's 5-year-old granddaughter, Arabella Kushner, went viral on Chinese social media after the surprise result of the presidential election, and netizens are charmed.

In the video, which was uploaded to the Instagram of her mom, Ivanka, around the Lunar New Year, Arabella recited lines from classical Tang dynasty poems in Mandarin, while dressed in a traditional Chinese blouse in the favored celebratory red.

Her performance endeared her to many on Weibo, China's answer to Twitter.

"I particularly dislike Trump but his children and grandchildren are all quite cute," commented Weibo user cloudwhale.

"A new generation of Sino-U.S. friendship ambassador," wrote Bright.

"I think Trump will take her along when he visits China," Ke said.

Chinese opinion has been more mixed on Trump himself, with many approving of the billionaire's inherited wealth early in the campaign period.
