Twitter Roasts Trump for Doubting Santa's Existence in Chat With Little Girl

Children still able to track Santa despite US shutdown

For six minutes she was on hold - no music just silence - before the president came on the line.

Speaking by video conference to members of all five service branches on Christmas morning, Trump said, "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 asked. When she responded, "Yes, sir", the president added, "Because at 7, that's marginal, right?"

The President talked to seven-year-old Collman Lloyd of Lexington, South Carolina, wishing here a Merry Christmas and asking about school and holiday plans.

On Christmas Eve, the president and his wife Melania Trump were answering calls from children who phoned to the federal government's official "Santa Tracker", run by the North American Aerospace Defense Command for 63 years.

Current first lady Melania Trump even tweeted, "Helping children across the country track #Santa is becoming one of my favorite traditions!"

What Mr Trump said to Collman made headlines as he was blamed for ruining Christmas for her and children around the world. "I would like to ask if he has any kids", Lloyd told the Post and Courier.

"I think it's insane it became a big deal. I was very impressed with the phone call", Erica Lloyd, a third-grade teacher, told BuzzFeed.

Cardinals claim D.J. Swearinger off waivers
The team announced Tuesday it claimed Swearinger off waivers from Washington, a day after he was cut by the Redskins. Swearinger had been one of Washington's best defensive players throughout the balance of the season.

It is not clear why the POTUS said what he did, because the existence of Santa has never been under any doubt.

Now, a letter by John F Kennedy to a girl named Michelle, shared on Twitter by presidential historian Michael Beschloss, has everyone comparing their vastly different responses.

Next time she spoke with him, she would ask him about his family, she said.

"Most people know this question".

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. "Are you still a believer in Santa?"

President Donald Trump has wished US troops worldwide a merry Christmas.

He assailed the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates, railed against Democrats who refuse to fund the wall he wants to build on the US-Mexico border, and blasted the investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation, among other regular targets. Trump said, waiting for Collman to reply.
