Trump says believing in Santa at 7 is 'marginal'

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

A little girl from SC looking to track down Santa Claus' location on Christmas Eve ended up having an expected conversation with Donald Trump.

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.

After going viral in 2016, the video of a Sikh Santa Claus taking to the streets, is winning a lot of hearts again because it's Christmas Eve and everybody loves to do bhangra.

Trump let out an ear-to-ear smile during his discussion with Coleman while Melania Trump called it "one of my favourite traditions".

In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defence command for North America called NORAD which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa. "Because at seven, it's marginal, right?"

A Christmas tradition, the NORAD tracker delights children with "real-time" updates on Santa's Christmas Eve journey around the world.

Collman's parents later said they had no issue the way Mr Trump spoke to their daughter, and said the president's remark was unfairly politicised. She replied, "Yes sir".

You can also now use Google Assistant to communicate directly with the patron of presents, allowing anyone to say "Hey Google, call Santa" and be put through to the North Pole for a cheeky Christmas surprise. A Colorado Springs newspaper had apparently run an ad inviting kids to call Santa mistakenly under the hotline number.

The president and first lady found a festive way to keep busy at the White House during the government shutdown that kept them in Washington: They fielded kids' calls to Santa Claus.

To avoid disappointing the eager children, NORAD's director of operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, ordered his staff to check the radar to see where Santa might be and update the children on his location.

Trump: Are you still a believer in Santa?

Ricks said Santa is tracked by infrared signals emitted by the shiny red nose of Rudolph, Santa's lead reindeer.
