In a telephone conversation with a seven-year-old US President, Donald Trump has questioned the existence of Santa Claus in question – and the Belief in “Santa Claus” in the age as “borderline”. Trump took on Christmas eve at the White house along with his wife Melania calls from children inquiring about the current location of Santa Claus – a Tradition in the United States.

“Hello, is this Coleman? Merry Christmas. How are you? How old are you?” began the President to the chat. Then the conversation took an unusual turn: “do you still Believe in Santa Claus? Because seven years is borderline, right?” said Trump, and began to laugh.

Donald Trump because of a Shutdown in the White house

Also this year, the children can track the journey of Santa Claus on the website and on the telephone Hotline – and, although the budget freeze in the USA currently, parts of the government apparatus shuts down. The air defense command had made it clear that the 63-year-old Tradition will also be performed in a so-called Shutdown.
