Ivanka Trump mocked for sharing ‘Chinese proverb’ that isn’t actually Chinese

First daughter and White House advisor Ivanka Trump left China's social media users confused after tweeting what she believed to be an inspirational Chinese proverb ahead of her father's historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

But it was reportedly panned on China's social network, Weibo, and may have actually been an early 20th-century saying.

Internet users are saying Ivanka Trump would be wise to double check online quotes after she shared an apparently fake "Chinese proverb". They came up with various suggestions, including "Empty talk is harmful to the nation, while doing practical work will make it thrive", a proverb frequently used by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"'This not even remotely an actual Chinese proverb.' - Chinese Proverb", angryasianman tweeted.

It's not the first time Ivanka Trump has given China credit for an adage.

"It sounds more legitimate and credible to pronounce a quote coming from the ancient civilization of China", he added.

"If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts", she wrote, attributing the quote to Einstein, before quickly being informed by other Twitter users that this was not an Einstein quote.

It may have originated in 1903 in "The Public" - a Chicago-based magazine - and evolved over the years, according to a 2015 article by Quote Investigator. "But why are Trump WH aides giving our proverbs to China, increasing our proverb deficit?"
