Trump and his wife Melania arrived in Beijing today for a three-day state visit, the first by the US president.
One of the ancient Chinese texts Arabella was shown reciting, Xinhua said, was the Three Character Classic the same text she performed to Xi in person during the summit between Trump and Xi at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida last April.
At that time, Xi applauded for Arabella for her performance and encouraged her Mandarin studies.
A video of Arabella reciting a Chinese poem went viral in China shortly after Trump's election.
During the Chinese New Year, a video of Arabella singing "Happy New Year" with a Chinese marionette went viral after Ivanka posted it on Instagram.
