The seven-year-old girl who spoke to President Donald Trump about Santa Claus Monday night says she still believes in Father Christmas.
On Christmas Eve, Trump answered phone calls made by children to CONAD, a switchboard where members of the North American Aerospace Defense Command pretend to tell callers about Santa’s whereabouts.
One exchange — where Trump challenged a girl’s belief in Santa Claus — went viral.
“Are you still a believer in Santa Claus,” Trump asked. “[Because] at seven, it’s marginal, right?”
The Charleston, South Carolina-based Post and Courier caught up with Collman Lloyd, the seven-year-old caller in that exchange.
She said she didn’t know what the word “marginal” meant and still believed in Santa.
Lloyd also said she was stunned that she was able to speak to the president.
“I was like, ‘wow.’ I was shocked,” she said. “It wasn’t really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was.”
Lloyd found a wrapped American Girl doll under the Christmas tree, according to the Post and Courier’s report.
