Girl still believes after Santa challenge from Trump

April FrancisDec 27, 2018

What Mr Trump said to Collman made headlines as he was blamed for ruining Christmas for her and children around the world.

Outside the White House, Washington's National Christmas Tree became a forlorn symbol of the dysfunction gripping Trump's presidency two years after his surprise election. Trump asks in a video taken at Collman's home that was posted by the paper. Trump listened for a moment before adding, "Because at seven, it's marginal, right?"

Fortunately for the internet, Collman told BuzzFeed she continues to believe in Santa Claus. "I just didn't want to to go down and be there when other people are hurting". Though she did not understand what the word "marginal" meant, according to the reports, the child responded, "Yes, sir".

Trump speaks with reporters after holding a video call with us military service members in the Oval Office on Christmas morning in Washington, on Tuesday. I talked with him yesterday and he is fine.

Democratic leaders on Christmas Eve, meanwhile, said the "president wanted the shutdown, but he seems not to know how to get himself out of it".

Collman had called the NORAD Tracks Santa program on Christmas Eve.

Trump Talks Shutdown During Surprise Iraq Trip: Nancy Pelosi’s ‘Calling the Shots’
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Saturday that a physical barrier is off the option. "We can't do it without a wall". The shutdown started Saturday after funding lapsed for nine Cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies.

The government may have partially shut down, but the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is still tracking Santa Claus' journey across the globe.

Perhaps furious at the lonely Christmas Eve he was apparently having, Trump and his wife Melania fielded phone calls with children at the White House in front of the press. I would like to ask if he has any kids.

Trump was heard asking another child, "What's Santa going to get you for Christmas?"

U.S. president Donald Trump on Tuesday ruled out an end to the partial government shutdown till the Congress approve funds for building a wall along the Mexican border to prevent entry of illegal immigrants.

Despite surveys revealing that the measure is unpopular, and with the majority of respondents blaming Trump for the brinkmanship, the U.S. president has stuck to his guns.

Earlier, the President said on Twitter that he was "all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security".
