A Saudi poet has taken social media by storm after he posted a short clip in which he recited two verses expressing his admiration for Ivanka, the daughter of US President-Elect Donald Trump.
“For the eyes of Trump’s daughter, I will smile and forget all differences. She ruled the hearts of all people before her father ruled the States,” the poet who did not identify himself said in perfectly rhyming Arabic verses.
The short clip became a sensation on social media, particularly Instagram, and comments expectedly ranged from sympathetic support to the “Romeo” to outright criticism.
“She is pretty, but you are wasting your time because even if you had all the oceans as ink and wrote millions of verses, she would not even cast a glance at you,” Southerner said.
Fares said the poet should fear God while talking about women.
“It is incredible how some people jump into concocting stories and drafting verses as soon as they see a woman they consider beautiful. This is deplorable and they should remember that God is watching them and that they will be held responsible for their trivial actions,” he said.
Ivanka, 33, described by Business Insider as the breakout success of the family, is the daughter of Ivana, Trump’s first wife.
Specialising in deal-making and design, she joined her father’s company in 2005 and married Jared Kushner, a real estate and publishing scion, in 2009.
The couple has two children, Arabella Rose and Joseph Frederick Kushner.
