US President Donald Trump is not necessarily for maximum sensitivity known. On Christmas eve, he sowed a little boy to doubt the existence of Santa Claus.

Trump took together with his wife Melania at the traditional Santa Claus Radar calls from children. Children to call to ask where Santa is on the go on the world.

Trump and his wife had a talk with young callers, they asked, how old they are, where they come from and what do you want for Christmas. In a conversation with a seven-year-old Donald Trump raised, however, the question of whether there is a Santa Claus at all. “Still believe in Santa Claus?”, he asked the boy, and afterwards pushed: “For seven years, on the border, isn’t it?”

What is the Boy replied, is not known. Only Trumps part of the conversation was transmitted to the public. Another child of the President of the wish: “Have a great Christmas, and we talk to each other again. Okay?”

The so-called Santa Tracker there for decades. More than 1500 Volunteers will also be followed this year on Christmas eve the service of the North American aerospace defense command (NORAD), the flight of the “Santa Claus” to the world on radar screens. Traditionally, the current President of the family helps in the acceptance of the many calls. The flight of the gifts-loaded slide can also be tracked online.

Trump and the First Lady also had taken in the past year, calls from children to the Hotline. In conversation with a young caller Donald Trump was a little more restrained with regard to the question of whether there is a Santa Claus at all. “What do you think about Santa?”, he asked as a child. “Do you think determines Santa Claus?” His little conversation partner at the other end of the line was at the time, but also only five years old, according to the assessment of the President’s Belief in “Santa Claus” because, apparently, even sooner. “Wow, that’s a good age,” was the President at the time, anyway – and refused to cast doubt on the existence of Santa Claus.
