"Historical data and more than 60 years of NORAD tracking information lead us to believe Santa Claus is alive and well in the hearts of people throughout the world", the Pentagon's handbook reads.

Mrs. Trump told a caller that Santa was in the Sahara.

In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defence command for North America called NORAD which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa. However, on the day before Christmas they track Santa as he begins his journey in the South Pacific.

Many kids will be eager to know where St. Nick head first to, from the North Pole and to help them get live tracking information, the search engine giant Google and the U.S. government-run North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) command have made arrangements to keep a tab on his tour.

The call came around 6:30 p.m.as the President and first lady Melania Trump spoke on separate phones to children whose calls to NORAD had been patched through to the White House lines. Merry Christmas. How are you?

And nor is it clear why Mr Trump asked this particular question, as the evidence of Santa's existence is beyond dispute.
