Young Girl Responds to Trump Question About Her Belief in Santa Claus

A clip of the president speaking to 7-year-old Collman Lloyd on the NORAD Santa tracking hotline went viral after Trump asked the girl if she still believes in Santa and then added, "At 7 it's marginal, right?" As is tradition, the president answered a few of those calls in front of reporters, asking Collman, "Are you still a believer in Santa?"

President Donald Trump speaks on the phone sharing updates to track Santa's movements from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24, 2018.

In a video her family posted on the Internet, she replied "Yes sir", later telling the newspaper she had no idea what "marginal" meant.

The president casting doubt on a girl's belief in Santa Claus caused quite the stir on social media Christmas Day, but everything was apparently relatively normal in the Lloyd household.

The Post and Courier tracked down Lloyd who declared that, yes, she did believe in Santa and told the President that.

"I think it's insane it became a big deal".

"Yes, sir", she said again.

The parents of the 7-year-old SC girl who had a phone conversation with President Trump on Christmas Eve are defending the president after members of the media accused him of ruining the child's belief in Santa Claus. Several minutes later, she reported that Santa was far away in Morocco but would be at the caller's home on Christmas morning.

"I know it's a great sacrifice for you to be away from your families, but I want you to know that every American family is eternally grateful to you, and we're holding you close in our hearts, thoughts and prayers", Trump said.

"What's Santa going to get you for Christmas? It's Christmastime. I'd love to keep politics out of Christmas", said Collman's father Donald in an interview with BuzzFeed.

Now, with a video posted by the Charleston Post and Courier, we get to see the other half of that exchange.

Mr Trump cancelled his holiday at his Florida estate because of the partial United States government shutdown, which began last week after a dispute over funding for his proposed border wall. "I was very impressed with the phone call".

"It made [Collman's] Christmas", Erica asserted about the call. "He used it with 'Santa, ' so maybe it has something to do with Christmas?" That budget included $5 billion for the border wall.
