'Do you still believe in Santa? Because at seven it's marginal.' Trump risks blowing the Christmas magic for a young caller to NORAD's Santa tracker as he is reunited with Melania in DC after the government shutdown

It is safe to assume any child calling the NORAD Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve believes in the existence of Santa Claus, but that did not stop President Trump from asking a seven-year-old named Coleman if he did.

President Trump capped off a terrible week for himself nearly ruining Christmas for the young caller by questioning his belief in Santa Claus.

'Are you still a believer in Santa?' Trump asked a caller named Coleman according to pool reports. 'Because at seven it's marginal, right?'

Trump appeared to try to keep thing light as he sat beside his wife, Melania, in front of a roaring fireplace beneath a portrait of former President Abraham Lincoln. He had spent the day complaining about his decision to remain at the White House because of the partial government shutdown.

Despite a day of travel, Melania Trump looked stunning in a dark blue, high-necked dress and deep red heels, ready to take calls.

Trump, who had been scheduled to leave for his Florida vacation home on Friday, had opted instead to stay at the White House during the shutdown so far, which occurred after he and top lawmakers failed to end an impasse over funding for his proposed wall along the border with Mexico.
