(CNN) – What does a pheasant and a kid speaking mandarin have to do with the perception of Donald Trump in China? Well, the Chinese seem captivated by both Trump’s grandchild and his lookalike.

The crest of the golden pheasant residing in a Chinese zoo bears such a striking resemblance to the Donald’s hair that the pheasant’s photo went viral.

Additionally, Trump’s grandchild reciting a Chinese poem called “sympathy for the peasants” has aroused sympathy for the president-elect in China.

On Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, comments ranged from “Impressive. You go, girl.” to the more skeptical, “Trump himself curses China, but then lets his granddaughter kiss China’s butt. That businessman is clever as a monkey.”

Arabella’s mom, Ivanka Trump, posted videos of her then 4-year-old speaking mandarin months ago, but they’ve just now gone viral in China. Ivanka told the South China Morning Post, “I have an incredible Chinese nanny who’s teaching her.”
