Girl who talked to Trump still believes in Santa

SANTA TRACKER: Santa Claus is coming to town! | See where he is now

According to the Post and Courier, Collman answered: "Yes, sir" to both of Trump's questions, while admitting that she had never heard the word "marginal" before.

For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa's flight, and the big guy in red has already had a very productive 2017 Christmas Eve. The president and first lady Melania Trump assisted NORAD during the 2017 and current holiday seasons, as she noted on Twitter on Christmas Eve.

In one conversation, Mr Trump asked a boy named Coleman, 7, "are you still a believer in Santa?"

A little girl from SC looking to track down Santa Claus' location on Christmas Eve ended up having an expected conversation with Donald Trump. Trump listened for a moment before adding, "Because at seven, it's marginal, right?"

"Yes, sir", Collman responded, WIS reported.

Coleman's answer however brought a smile to the president's face, who cheerily replied: "Well, you just enjoy yourself".

"I was like, 'wow.' I was shocked".

Zalmay Khalilzad, special adviser on reconciliation, speaks during a news conference in Kabul, Afghanistan, March 13, 2009. A demand was also made for a halt to the airstrikes on civilians by the United States and Afghan forces.

NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has made a tradition of using its radar system to track Santa on his trip around the globe every Christmas Eve.

The couple took calls from children a year ago as well, and the first lady said on Twitter that the Christmas Eve calls were "becoming one of my favorite traditions!" He spoke Tuesday by video conference to members of all five branches of the US military. She asked another child if he or she had been good that year.

When Santa crosses the Atlantic, he typically makes his initial appearance in the Americas in Canada and then works his way down the East Coast of the United States towards us.

The president spent a rare Christmas in Washington because of a stalemate with Congress over government funding that left several departments and agencies shuttered since the weekend, affecting the livelihoods of some 800,000 federal employees.

Trump most likely would have been attending Christmas services at church near his estate in Palm Beach, Florida. He scrapped travel plans because of the shutdown.

"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.
