Trump to child: 'Are you still a believer in Santa Claus?'

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.

Stuck in Washington on Christmas morning 2018, Trump displayed little holiday cheer while speaking with reporters after a 20-minute video conference with USA troops serving overseas.

"What's Santa going to get you for Christmas", Trump asked another child. She responded, "Yes, sir", and Trump added, "Because at 7, that's marginal, right?"

Collman didn't know what "marginal" meant and simply answered, "Yes, sir".

After a brief pause, Trump chuckled for a second and said, "Well, you just enjoy yourself".

Mr Trump's chat with Collman was initially reported as being with a boy named Coleman.

As for whether or not Lloyd questions Santa's existence after her conversation with Trump, she woke up to find a brand new American Girl doll.

US President Donald Trump participates in NORAD Santa Tracker phone calls in the White House.

Trump let out an ear-to-ear smile during his discussion with Coleman, while Melania Trump called it "one of my favorite traditions". He spoke Tuesday by video conference to members of all five branches of the USA military. Asked by reporters if any progress had been made on government funding talks, Trump said there was nothing to report. Just fuse it with the core meaning of Santa Claus and spread some love, because boy, are we in need of it.

But he scrapped plans to head to Florida for the holidays after parts of the government were forced to shut down indefinitely in a stalemate with Congress.

Mr. Trump usually celebrates Christmas at his Florida estate.

President Donald Trump makes a video call to service members from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard stationed worldwide in the Oval Office at the White House December 25, 2018 in Washington, DC.

"At least this kid's "how I found out Santa wasn't real" story will be interesting, ' one person wrote while someone else slammed Trump as a 'Supervillain" for what he did.
