Donald Trump asks boy, 7, if he still believes in Santa

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump answer calls from people calling into the NORAD Santa tracker phone line

But fortunately the child, from Lexington, South Carolina, said that she had never heard the word "marginal" before.

The shutdown occurred after the 72-year-old president demanded over bn to fund the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico.

And nor is it clear why Mr Trump asked this particular question, as the evidence of Santa's existence is beyond dispute.

When she responded: "Yes, sir", he had added: "Because at seven, that's marginal, right?"

Mrs Trump told a caller that Santa was in the Sahara.

"It wasn't really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was", Collman said.

Trump speaks with reporters after holding a video call with USA military service members in the Oval Office on Christmas morning in Washington, on Tuesday. "Who's with you.Have a great Christmas.and I'll talk to you again, OK?" But many rank-and-file workers have gone to social media with stories of the financial hardship they expect to face because of the shutdown.

Trump, speaking to reporters Tuesday in the Oval Office during the fourth day of the impasse, also revealed that he will be going to the border in Texas for a "groundbreaking" ceremony for a portion of the project at the end of January. Several minutes later, she reported that Santa was far away in Morocco but would be at the caller's home on Christmas morning.

In addition to the NORAD Tracks Santa program and church services Christmas Eve, Trump participated in another holiday tradition, wishing United States troops stationed around the country and the globe a merry Christmas.

Donald Trump and wife Melania were taking calls from children hoping to get through to NORAD - the American government agency that tracks Santa's movements around the world at Christmas - when the incident occurred. "I would like to ask if he has any kids", she shares.

He had said: "Are you still a believer in Santa?"

In response to Trump's 'I am all alone (poor me)' tweet, there has been a flurry of counter tweets and memes trolling the President as Christmas celebrations kicked off across the globe.
