Ivanka posted the tweet, "Those who say it can not be done, should not interrupt those doing it", for celebrating her father and US President, Donald Trump's historic meet with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over seeking closure to a tense decades-old nuclear stand-off.
People on the popular Chinese social media platform Weibo attempted to come up with a list of real Chinese proverbs that might match what Trump was trying to say.
People in China began tweeting other sayings they thought Ivanka might have meant to use.
Ms Trump, whose daughter is learning Mandarin, attributed the quote to "Chinese Proverb" along with her post on Twitter, published hours before her father came together with Mr Kim to seek an end to a tense decades-old nuclear stand-off.
