The 7-year-old South Carolina girl who President Donald Trump asked if she “still” believes in Santa Claus was interviewed by the Charleston Post and Courier, telling them that she wants to know if the president “has any kids.”
Trump, who made the comments while fielding calls related to the Santa “tracking” services at North American Aerospace Defense Command, asked Collman Lloyd if she was a believer, “Because at 7, that’s marginal, right?”
“Yes, sir,” said Lloyd, who called specifically for updates about Santa’s location.
In her interview, the child explained she had never heard the word “marginal” before and said she still believes in Santa after the call.
“I was like, ‘wow.’ I was shocked,” Lloyd said, describing her feelings after the president answered the phone. “It wasn’t really [nerve-wracking], I just had to think of what the truth was.”
When asked by the paper what she would do if she spoke to the president again, Collman 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.”
Trump has five children, including his youngest son Barron Trump, 12.
