While on the Santa-tracking phone line, the current president, Donald Trump, pretty much ruined this little seven year old boy’s dreams and childhood when he asked if he is still a Santa believer! The child got connected to the leader of the free world through the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) while it was tracked the jolly bearded guy’s trajectory across the whole planet!
The boy named Coleman had a chat with Trump last night on Christmas Eve when the president asked him in a video that has become viral: ‘Merry Christmas. How are you? How old are you? … Are you doing well in school? … Are you still a believer in Santa? Because at 7, it’s marginal, right?’
Why would he even ask such a thing?
The kid’s answer cannot be heard in the footage, but the Donald chuckles to whatever Coleman says.

As you can imagine, social media users were quick to react to the whole thing.
‘At least this kid’s ‘how I found out Santa wasn’t real’ story will be interesting,’ one person wrote while someone else slammed Trump as a ‘Supervillain’ for what he did.
Comedian David Baddiel also tweeted: ‘One thing about a pathological liar is they never know when it’s the right time, to tell the truth.’
‘Is there a scenario where you believe in Santa and also understand the meaning of the word ‘marginal’?’ another user wrote.
Meanwhile, the First Lady, Melania Trump, who took the kids’ calls as well, tweeted pics of her chatting with them on the NORAD line and said that it was ‘becoming one of [her] favorite traditions!’
Hopefully, that kid’s Christmas was not ruined! Happy Holidays!
