Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s daughter, Arabella Rose Kushner, recently answered a set of questions that were asked by her kindergarten classmates for Student Spotlight Interview, and Ivanka Trump shared her “very cute answers” on her Twitter feed.
In the Student Spotlight Interview, Donald Trump’s 5-year-old granddaughter answered a total of 18 questions. She not only revealed her favorite color, food, number, country but also revealed what she wanted to become in the future.
Arabella Kushner’s favorite country is her home country, America, while her favorite number is infinity. Her favorite color is the rainbow, but if she were a car, she would like to be in baby blue color. And her favorite food is “of course, ice cream,” and she would be mint chocolate chip if she were one flavor of ice cream. Arabella Kushner also said that she would eat a thousand worms a day if she were a bird. Also, Paw Patrol is the favorite movie of the girl whose favorite bird is “Bird jay.”
Ivanka Trump’s daughter wants to be in Marines when she grows up, and if she were a princess, she would like to be Elena of Avalar. And if she were Lego, she would resemble Elsa. “A Star of David” is what she would be if she were a star. And she would be Israel rather than an ant if she were given a choice to choose between the two.
Arabella Kushner’s “a Star of David” and “Israel” answers do not come as a surprise, as her parents, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, are practicing Orthodox Jews. Donald Trump’s daughter had converted to Judaism before she married Jared Kushner in 2009.

It is not the first time Ivanka Trump has shared something related to her daughter on her social media feed. On June 7, she posted a picture of herself with her daughter with the caption, “Learning to code with Arabella tonight – the language of the future!”

As Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser to the President, Ivanka Trump’s every move and social media posts attract a deluge of negative comments and land her in the controversy zone. And it was no different when she posted two posts related to her daughter on her Twitter feed. One of the posters accused her of “pimping out” her children, while some accused her of hiding behind her children and using them as “PR props.”
Television writer and producer Ted Sullivan, too, lashed out at Ivanka Trump via a string of comments, which he posted under Arabella Kushner’s Student Spotlight Interview post.
He said, “Posting ‘adorable’ answers of your child doesn’t change fact you enable & support a homophobic misogynistic hate monger #ShunIvanka.”
“If you stand with hate, you support hate. #ShunIvanka,” he later posted while replying to one of the posters who was defending Ivanka Trump’s right to post about her children as a mother. “Because she’s using her child to hide behind & normalize her behavior so that people go ‘aww… she’s a great mom!’ Which is disgusting.”
If you stand with hate, you support hate. #ShunIvanka

Some posters also asked Ivanka Trump to speak out against the arrest of the men who were investigating a China-based factory that produced shoes for her and other brands. China had recently detained three activists who were investigating the factory to verify claims of worker abuses, according to reports. China has reportedly rejected the U.S. State Department’s call to release the men.
Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department said that it was a State Department’s issue when the press had asked whether Donald Trump or Ivanka Trump would comment directly on the issue, according to Time.
In a statement, the Democratic National Committee’s spokesperson, Adrienne Watson, however, criticized Ivanka Trump’s company for not speaking publicly about the arrest of the three men.
“Ivanka’s company should switch suppliers, and the Trumps should stop hypocritically telling corporations to ‘buy American and hire American’ while they continue to knowingly take advantage of workers’ abuses abroad.”
Ivanka Trump has not yet responded to any of the negative comments and continues to maintain a dignified silence.
