Her father's brand may be struggling for popularity in the US, but Ivanka Trump is cultivating a cult following in China.
An online fan club on the website Weibo, which is similar to Twitter, even refers to the president's daughter as 'Goddess Ivanka'.
NBC News reports the page with the same title has about 12,000 followers, many of whom are effusive in their praise for the 35-year-old.
Hu Xingdou, a Beijing professor, told the network much of Ivanka Trump's popularity comes from people thinking she is supportive of China.
'Most people in China love Ivanka because of her friendly gestures towards the Chinese people,' Xingdou said.
'Ivanka is an important bridge during this period of uncertainties in China-US relations.'
I swear that Trump has people so freaked out that they will cling to any possibility that somebody can rein him in.
However as John Oliver pointed out over the weekend, it is unlikely that Ivanka is that person.
Yeah let's face it the only thing that can rein Donald Trump in is a conviction for treason and some much needed prison time.
Hopefully that is what looms in his future.
Update: Apparently the Germans are not quite as gullible as the Chinese.
This is what happened when Ivanka attempted to defend her father during a W20 conference in Germany.

Well that seems like a more rational response to Trump's little apologist.The crowd audibly rumbled, booed when Ivanka mentioned her father's support of women.— Emily Jane Fox (@emilyjanefox) April 25, 2017
