SC girl talks Santa in phone call with president

She answers, "yes, sir", when he asks if she believes in Santa.

She responded, "Yes, sir", and Mr. Trump added, "Because at 7, that's marginal, right?"

President Donald Trump set off a social media storm when he asked whether a seven-year-old was too old to believe in Santa Claus, capping a week of plunging stocks, a government shutdown and the US Defence Chief's departure. She reported that Christmas morning, the food was gone and presents were under the tree.

Collman Lloyd, 7, called NORAD Santa Tracker on Monday night and was redirected to the president himself.

The Daily Beast tweeted out video of Trump's end of the exchange. Trump asks in a video taken at Collman's home that was posted by the paper. "It's Christmastime. I'd love to keep politics out of Christmas", Donald Lloyd said. "It wasn't really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was", she told the newspaper.

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

She told BuzzFeed that she didn't understand what the president was trying to say - and especially doesn't know what the word "marginal" means.




When Collman Lloyd called NORAD Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve to find out where Santa was, she didn't expect to talk to the president of the United States.

After the call, she sat in the kitchen with her two siblings, a friend, and her parents, musing about Trump's family and his plans for the holiday. And it found that parents are highly involved in the charade: The more parents promote Santa, the less likely children are to question whether Santa is real. "But other than that, I wish everyone a very merry Christmas".

Mr Trump cancelled his holiday at his Florida estate because of the partial U.S. government shutdown, which began last week after a dispute over funding for his proposed border wall.

"What's Santa going to get you for Christmas?"

"It made [Collman's] Christmas", Erica asserted about the call.

Twitter had lit up after Trump, capping a week of plunging stocks, a government shutdown and the US defense chief's unceremonious departure, cast doubt on the cherished childhood fantasy.

One person who did have something negative to say about Trump was former longtime CBS News anchor Dan Rather.
