Trump wished Coleman a Merry Christmas and asked her age, Christmas plans and how she was doing in school. Trump asks in a video taken at Collman's home that was posted by the paper.

Collman had no idea what "marginal" meant, so she responded, "Yes, sir".

The child, Collman Lloyd, from Lexington, South Carolina, told the Post and Courier newspaper she was still a believer. When asked if she was nervous, she answered: "It wasn't really [nerve-wracking], I just had to think of what the truth was".

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

The child who President Trump queried about their belief in Santa Claus has been identified as a 7-year-old SC girl who, yes, still believes in jolly old St. Nick. In an interview with the Post and Courier of Charleston, she said the scientist who answered the NORAD phone asked her if she would like to speak to the president. On Christmas morning, she woke up to find the food gone and an American Girl doll wrapped under the tree.

Marginal? Well, it certainly is now you've effectively told me that he's not real, so thanks mate.

Earlier that day, Trump lamented about having to work on Christmas Eve. He also said he believes Trump's remarks have been "blown out of proportion and unfairly politicized", according to BuzzFeed. "It's Christmastime. I'd love to keep politics out of Christmas", Mr. Lloyd said.

Now, it'll come as no great surprise to anyone that Donald Trump is maybe not the most popular man on the planet, but it's Christmas, so we can cut him some slack, right?

In addition to the NORAD Tracks Santa program and church services Christmas Eve, Trump participated in another holiday tradition, wishing US troops stationed around the country and the globe a merry Christmas. In another call, he said: "What's Santa going to get you for Christmas?"

NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has made a new tradition of using a radar system to track Santa around the world every Christmas Eve.

Trump told reporters on Christmas that he stayed behind at the White House due to the government shutdown. That budget included $5 billion for the border wall.

"Well that's very good", Trump says.
