Ivanka Trump engaged her three children to encourage people to wash their hands regularly and thoroughly to prevent the spread of the coronavirus during the global health crisis.
The 38-year-old’s first daughter recorded it Instagram on Wednesday night to share a video of her children – Arabella, eight, Joseph, six, and Theodore, three – diligently scrubbing their hands with expensive hand soap as they slowly sing the alphabet together.
“We all have a role to play in slowing down the spread! Wash your hands (ohhh … and turn off the sink with your elbow or a towel while doing to save … still a work in progress with these guys in 10 days in), she captioned the footage.

Message: She emphasized in her caption that “we must all play a role in slowing down the spread”
The video begins with Ivanka’s kids foaming their hands in the sink with Aesop soap, which costs a whopping $ 39 per bottle.
Theodore, who turns four on Friday, is standing in front of the sink while flanked by his older siblings. The boys wear striped long sleeves and Ivanka’s lookalike daughter wears a white T-shirt covered with red hearts.
As the oldest, Arabella set a good example by carefully washing every inch of her fingers and hands while singing. At one point, their dog, Winter, can be seen walking into the kitchen while they are at the sink.
The clip ends when they dip their hands under running water at the same time to rinse off the soap.

While it’s definitely late than never, Ivanka’s video of her kids comes a week or so after other celebrities shared similar clips to teach the audience the importance of washing hands.
More than two weeks ago, Today’s presenter Savannah Guthrie revealed today that she was making up her own coronavirus-themed song that her kids could sing while washing their hands.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have emphasized that regularly washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and practicing social distances are two of the best defenses against the highly contagious coronavirus.
As of Thursday, there are more than 68,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United States and more than 1,000 deaths.

Focus: Ivanka has been busy using her social media platform to promote positivity, and on Wednesday she posted a photo of someone with a cut-out red heart
Stay positive: In the caption, she urged people to be friendly and love each other during this global crisis
Ivanka’s video has been viewed more than 332,000 times in just 14 hours, but the comment was mixed.
While fans praised her and her precious children, others were shocked by the amount of water the children had wasted, even though she noted that it was something they were working on.
Ivanka’s husband, White House co-advisor, Jared Kushner, was on her way to work Thursday morning, the morning after she posted the clip.
He put on his standard suit and carried his black work bag while opening a small smile to the photographers outside their house as they left their front doors.

The first daughter, who returned to work at the White House last week after testing negative for the coronavirus, was not seen on Thursday, although she was busy using her social media platform to promote positivity.
In recent days, she has shared clips of nursing home residents playing Hungry Hungry Hippos and Boston residents singing ‘Lean on Me’ while practicing social distance.
On Wednesday morning, she posted a photo of someone with a red-cut heart and wrote, “Kindness is an act of courage! #TogetherApart we witness the very best of humanity in this time of global crisis. Let’s continue to love and care for each other. ‘
Ivanka has also recently been tagged to take part in her sister-in-law Lara Trump’s viral ‘See 10, Do 10’ pushup challenge, but she hasn’t shared a video of her doing this yet.

Recoil: Earlier this month, Ivanka was beaten for her ‘snub’ and ‘got out of hand’ message, suggesting parents camp indoors while quarantined with their kids at home

However, some of her efforts to make the most of a bad situation have fallen on deaf ears. Earlier this month, she was met with violent reactions due to her ‘snub’ and ‘getting out of hand’ message, suggesting that parents have indoor campsites while quarantined with their children at home.
The mom of three shared throwback photos of herself camping much younger in the living room with Arabella and Joseph.
The playful images came at a time when working parents were fired and scrambled to find childcare as schools and nurseries across the country are closed.
Parents worried about the lack of coronavirus testing and how they would make ends meet in the coming weeks and months weren’t so kind to Ivanka to bring the situation to light.
Chrissy Teigen, who was one of those who hit the first daughter, commented, “After quoting pack of unquote sandwiches, we can get Covid testing.”
