A video of Donald Trump's granddaughter reciting ancient Chinese poetry went viral once again on China's social media following Trump's presidential victory.

Four-year-old Arabella Kushner, daughter of Ivanka Trump, had recited the Tang Dynasty (618-907) poems  in Chinese ahead of the Lunar New Year in February.

In the video, Arabella appears wearing a traditional qipao and stands on a table to recite works by famed poets such as Li Bai.

Arabella has been studying putonghua since she was 18 months old, the Daily Mail reported.

The clip was made to mark the Year of the Monkey, which ends January 27, 2017.

The video was trending on Sina Weibo soon after Trump was announced as president-elect, with many users praising Arabella as "surprisingly cute and impressive."

"I really hope the little angel falls in love with Chinese culture, quite exciting," wrote "orange."

"At least the video shows that the Trump places importance on education and did not shut the door for foreign culture," posted "stAu79."
