Ivanka Trump took to Twitter to express support for her father, Donald Trump, prior to his meeting with DPRK leader Kim Jong-un; however, her choice of wording left many perplexed. But criticism was more muted, with many people appearing more interested in helpfully trying to guess which actual Chinese idiom she might have meant to use.
"Those who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt those doing it. " -Chinese Proverb".
However, in true Trump family fashion, Ivanka Trump tried to brush off all criticism, going as far as making up a proverb. In fact, no one quite knows where it comes from, and it is often attributed to Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, but there is no evidence supporting that either.

On the internet, there are a number of other instances of the quote being described as a Chinese proverb.

As you would expect, Twitter users have jumped at the chance to mock the 36-year-old mother-of-three, with Chinese literature scholar Brendan O'Kane tweeting: "You can call any old sh*t a Chinese proverb on the internet".
'But why are Trump WH (White House) aides giving our proverbs to China, increasing our proverb deficit?' he quipped.
Instead, it sparked a backlash from Twitter users who ridiculed Ivanka for her apparent lack of cultural awareness.
