President Donald Trump seems to share an excellent rapport with the Saudi royals. On the heels of his visit to the Arab kingdom, one man named his new born after POTUS’ daughter Ivanka Trump.
Salem Al-Ayashi Al-Anzi, from northern city of Arar has admired Trump’s leadership ever since he took office.
According to a Washington Post report, the baby’s father was inspired by that fact that Trump avenged the death of “innocent children” in the chemical weapon attack by firing “70 missiles” at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Reports state that photo of the Saudi baby named ‘Abu-Ivanka’ with her birth certificate went viral on Whatsapp.
After the name was registered with the Health Ministry at the Women and Children, Al-Anzi faced criticism from a few who said that the name goes against their cultural values.
According to Arab News, he got a confirmation from officials that there were no religious or moral prohibitions in Arabic or Saudi culture to pick a name.
Impressed by Al-Anzi’s bold decision, his friends pitched in for the baby shower and also showered him with gifts.
Saudi journalist Moteeran Al-Nams, told Arab News that Al-Anzi took it up as a challenge to name his baby Ivanka and that “in our culture, we don’t step back from a challenge.”
