Donald Trump came dangerously close to ruining a young girl’s Christmas after she called the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) on Christmas Eve to ask where Santa currently was located. Trump objectively almost ruined Christmas for this young girl with the way he treated her on the phone, but now it is going to come back to haunt him because the girl has responded to her phone call with Trump.
NORAD has tracked Santa’s location on Christmas for the past 63 years for those who believe and celebrate Santa. When the 7 year old called to see where Santa was, a NORAD scientist asked if she wanted to speak with Trump. She was connected with Trump after being on hold for at least 6 minutes and he then questioned her belief in Santa. Seriously.
Trump asked the girl what she was doing for Christmas but then asked, “Are you still a believer in Santa?” The girl answered, “Yes, Sir,” which prompted Trump to ask another question, “Because at 7, that’s marginal, right?” She once again answered “Yes, Sir,” and it seems she did not really understand the question. The girl’s mother then seemed to intervene to get her off the phone with Trump before he ruined Christmas for her, as seen in the footage below.

A publication called the Post and Courier managed to get some information from the girl and her family, which revealed that the call was truly a disaster. During her phone call, the young girl was never actually told where Santa was and she only talked to Trump, who of course nearly told her Santa is not real.
Her response proves it all as well, “I was like, ‘wow.’ I was shocked,” the girl said. “It wasn’t really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was.” The Courier asked her what she might want to ask Trump if she ever spoke to him again, to which she said, “Most people know this question. I would like to ask if he has any kids. I’ve honestly never heard of them or seen any of them so I was wondering.” You can guess why she wanted to know if he has kids, because it probably has to due with her feeling like he has no idea how to talk to children.
The girl’s father claimed that the call with Trump didn’t “bother” them, but also contradictorily said, “I’d love to keep politics out of Christmas.” Although the girl told the Courier that she still believes in Santa, that might change because Trump is probably the first adult to ever make her question her belief. The whole thing Trump did to this girl is just so mean and unnecessary and proves how terrible of a human being he really is.
