Trump ignites Twitter storm after Christmas call with child

Nowadays, NORAD tracks Santa using all sorts of high-tech gear, including radar dishes, satellites and strategically placed "SantaCams". She called the annual event one of her favorite White House traditions.

A Christmas tradition, the NORAD tracker delights children with "real-time" updates on Santa's Christmas Eve journey around the world. When she responded, "Yes, sir", the president added, "Because at seven, that's marginal, right?"

At first, Collman, 7, just planned to ask NORAD where Santa Claus was headed, WIS-TV reported.

In 1955, when Colorado-based Sears Roebuck & Co. misprinted a telephone number in an advertisement for kids wishing to talk to Santa, they sent dozens of children calling the Continental Air Defense Command center instead.

While working on Christmas Eve keeps technicians away from family and friends, it is still a mission they look forward to.

The center, in the spirit of the season spent the night answering the phones and kept all the curious callers informed about Santa's whereabouts.

NORAD eased the fears of good little boys and girls concerned the tracker might be down, after USA lawmakers failed agree on a budget, triggering a partial shutdown of federal services, including the maintenance of the Christmas tree outside the White House.

"What's Santa going to get you for Christmas", Trump asked another child.

US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump take part in Santa Tracker phone calls, which the First Lady said was "becoming one of my favourite traditions".

NORAD also has a Facebook page where you can track Santa's movements, a hotline, 1-877-HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723), and a website where you can track Santa's location and play some games.

Today, volunteers still take calls and handle thousands of calls and emails from around the world.
