Trump tells boy that believing in Santa at 7 is 'marginal'

Christmas Eve, President Donald Trump and the first lady answered a few phone calls tracking Santa Claus as he traveled around the globe delivering toys to children.

The North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) tweeted Friday that it "will continue with its 63-year tradition of NORAD Tracks Santa on December 24" even in the event of a shutdown, which is great for the world's population of internet-savvy children but also the rest of us, given the necessity of NORAD's function.

Six minutes later, Mr Trump was on the line.

However, Trump asked her, "Because at 7, it's marginal, right?"

"Well, you just enjoy yourself", a chuckling Trump added before moving on to presumably reveal the details of Luke Skywalker's parentage or how LOST ended for someone who just got the box set for the first time. Only Mr Trump's end of the conversation could be heard by reporters, but Collman's family later posted video of the call on YouTube.

That night, Collman and her siblings left iced sugar cookies and chocolate milk out for Santa, and the next morning they were gone.

Meanwhile, Mr. Trump and top Democrats in Congress sparred over the partial shutdown of the US government on Monday, the third day of the closure, with no sign of tangible efforts to reopen agencies closed by a political impasse over Mr. Trump's demand for border wall funds. "I would like to ask if he has any kids", she said.

The meeting on Monday didn't result in a deal, the Associated Press reported, the government shutdown continuing through Christmas Eve over the president's budget demands for a wall along the US-Mexico border. "We love what you do and love your work".

Since Saturday, several Cabinet departments and agencies have been closed after their funding lapsed, and hundreds of thousands of government workers across the U.S. were affected. He scrapped plans to travel to Palm Beach because of the shutdown. "I can tell you it's not gonna be open until we have a wall, a fence, whatever they'd like to call it".

"One would think that securing our homeland, controlling our borders and protecting the American people, would be bipartisan priorities...a core duty of any nation's government", Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.
