Ivanka Trump’s popularity is spreading all across the globe. President Trump’s daughter is especially well-liked in China where a group of fans have taken to calling her “Goddess Ivanka.”
Ivanka’s popularity in China isn’t unfounded. She has actively worked to promote Chinese culture to her family. Ivanka’s popularity really started to swell after she recently visited the country.
The New York Post reports:
Here in America, she’s simply first daughter Ivanka Trump. But in China, President Trump’s second-oldest kid is fast becoming a cult figure — complete with an online fan club dedicated to “Goddess Ivanka.”
“Most people in China love Ivanka because of her friendly gestures towards the Chinese people,” blogger and Beijing Institute of Technology economics professor Hu Xingdou told NBC.
Hu cited Ivanka Trump’s visit to the Chinese embassy, celebrating the lunar new year, and her efforts to teach Chinese culture to her kids as reasons why the world’s most populous nation is falling for her.
Ivanka’s influence on the world continues to grow. “Time” magazine has ranked her as one of the most influential people of 2017.

The “Time” piece was written by Chinese born businesswoman Wendi Murdoch. Murdoch praised Ivanka for her savvy as a businesswoman and her commitment to her family. She then went on to commend Ivanka for her support of women’s rights and her efforts to put an end to human trafficking.
Ivanka Trump’s popularity in China can’t be a bad thing. Some believe she may be the White House’s key to improving the relationship between the U.S. and China.
