Trump to kid about believing in Santa: 'At 7 it's marginal, right?'

Trump to kid about believing in Santa: 'At 7 it's marginal, right?'

President Donald Trump did the unthinkable while taking calls about Santa on Christmas Eve: He asked a young boy if Santa Claus was real.

But fear not. Collman Lloyd still believes in Santa and was not that put off by Trump's remarks, mainly because she didn't know what "marginal" meant.

Not even the partial government shutdown could keep NORAD from following the man in red.

CNN reports that the call came in at 6:30 p.m.as Trump and first lady Melania Trump spoke on separate phones to children who had been patched through to them after calling NORAD.

A nervous Collman sat in her kitchen on hold for about six minutes, with brisket and Brussels sprouts on the stove, before Trump picked up.


"Quickly after that, and "NORAD Tracks Santa" continues that tradition today".

Mr Trump listened again and chuckled before saying, "well, you just enjoy yourself".

What Mr Trump said to Collman made headlines as he was blamed for ruining Christmas for her and children around the world. Trump asks in a video taken at Collman's home that was posted by the paper.

The little girl also woke up to a brand new American Girl doll on Christmas morning.

The North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) is tracking Santa's flight and whereabouts as he makes his annual journey around the world delivering gifts to the world's children.


"Helping children across the country track #Santa is becoming one of my favorite traditions", she tweeted. He spoke Tuesday by video conference to members of all five branches of the USA military.

The kid's answer can not be heard in the footage, but the Donald chuckles to whatever Coleman says.

You could also email noradtrackssanta@gmail.com and someone will reply with Santa's last known location.

The president was spending a rare Christmas in Washington because of a stalemate with Congress over government funding that has left several departments and agencies shuttered, affecting some 800,000 federal employees.

He and the first lady usually attend Christmas Eve services at the Episcopal church in Palm Beach where they were married in 2005.
