Ivanka And Jared’s Children Perform For Chinese President

(JTA) — The children of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the Jewish daughter and son-in-law of the president, performed for the Chinese president and his wife during their official visit to the United States.

Arabella, 5, and Joseph Kushner, 3, sang a Chinese folk song and recited verses from classic Chinese poetry.

Ivanka Trump posted a short video clip of the performance and wrote in a tweet: “Very proud of Arabella and Joseph for their performance in honor of President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan’s official visit to the US!”

President Donald Trump retweeted the praise of his grandchildren.
