Ivanka Trump’s ‘fake’ Chinese proverb sparks debate in China

17 7 58

THE daughter of US President Donald Trump has fuelled debate in China after Tweeting a proverb which many in the Asian country believe did not belong to the Chinese.

Although Ivanka Trump did not accompany her father to Singapore for his summit with Kim Jong Un, she took to social media in an apparent show of support, tweeting what she described as a Chinese proverb: “Those who say it can not be done, should not interrupt those doing it.”

That sounds like pearls of wisdom from a Chinese sage – except that many Chinese people do not think it is Chinese.
