Trump Crushes a 7-Year-Old's Dreams About Santa

The president remained at the White House on Christmas Day, having cancelled his plans to spend the holiday at his estate in Florida after about a quarter US federal agencies were shut down when their funding expired Friday.

Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has predicted that the shutdown could stretch into January, when Democrats are set to control the House of Representatives, the lower house of the US Congress.

"Generally, he starts around the global dateline, goes to New Zealand, Australia, Asia pacific, Europe and finally into North America, where we will escort him with NORAD fighter jets in Canada and the United States".

Like the Federal workers who are entering the holiday season without pay, Trump too is making sacrifices, he explained. "It's a 2,000-mile border but much of it has mountain and region where you can't get across", Trump said. Trump used his Christmas morning call as an opportunity to double down on his demand for a border wall. "What we do support - Democrats and Republicans - is real, effective border security".

In the meantime, the Trump administration is holding firm that the shutdown will continue until Democrats agree to wall off the US-Mexico border.

Trump didn't say how he's hearing from federal workers, excluding those he appointed to their jobs or who work with him in the White House.

"It's not a question of me", he continued. "I'd love to keep politics out of Christmas". We're nearly having a groundbreaking, it's such a big section.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said at the weekend the president "must abandon the wall, plain and simple" to reopen the government.

In front of a crackling fire and between two Christmas trees, President Trump wished the young Coleman a Merry Christmas and asked the child's age, Christmas plans and how he or she was doing in school.

"It wasn't really (nerve-wracking), I just had to think of what the truth was", Collman said. "It's probably the biggest section we'll get out".

"It's a disgrace, what's happening in this country", Trump said.

Trump added that he wants to have the wall in place "by election time", apparently referring to November 2020 when he is up for re-election.
