Huh? China stumped by Ivanka Trump's 'Chinese proverb'

Ivanka Trump tweets 'Chinese' proverb, confusing China
"The daughter of the United States president tweeted on Monday: "'Those who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt those doing it.' - Chinese Proverb". But criticism was more muted, with many people appearing more interested in helpfully trying to guess which actual Chinese idiom she might have meant to use. Others pointed to more informal phrases that are popular in China, such as "If you can do it, do it; if you can't, shut up".
First daughter Ivanka Trump was accused of crimes against philosophy on Tuesday, after she posted a "Chinese proverb" that is not actually Chinese.
There's just one problem: this is most likely not a Chinese proverb. While the Chinese crowd absolutely ridiculed the idea of Ivanka's saying belonging to their culture, one user suggested that it originated in the U.S. itself.
"Our editor really can't think of exactly which proverb this is".
Ivanka Trump has been mocked by social media users in China after she shared a Chinese proverb that didn't turn out to be Chinese.
On Weibo, several people offered Chinese proverb suggestions that might convey something similar, without arriving at an agreement.
"That definitely is a falsely attributed proverb", Larry Herzberg, the director of Asian studies at Calvin College and a professor of Chinese language, told ABC News. She frequently emphasizes her connection to China and Chinese culture and has also hired a Chinese-speaking nanny to tutor her daughter.
The ridicule was present stateside, too, where conservative writer and ardent Trump critic Bill Kristol lambasted her over the proverb.
