In another phone call, Trump took a child's belief in Santa as a given. If children are still awake when Santa arrives, he moves on to other houses.
NORAD is continuing its 63-year tradition of tracking Santa's arrival across the world despite the partial government shutdown.
"It really gets you into the Christmas spirit", said Madison Hill, a student at Mississippi State University who got involved through Air Force family members stationed in Colorado Springs.
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.
For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa's flight, and the big guy in red has already had a very productive 2017 Christmas Eve. The couple participated in phone calls past year as well. Trump asked the child.
"In addition to our day-to-day mission of defending North America, we are proud to carry on the tradition of tracking Santa as he travels along his yuletide flight", said Gen. Terrence O' Shaughnessy, commander NORAD and U.S. Northern Command. However, on Christmas Eve it takes on the added responsibility of tracking Santa.
You can also track Santa using Amazon Alexa by installing the "NORAD Tracks Santa" skill which is free from Amazon.
After NORAD was founded in 1958, the military headquarters made it their duty to keep the public informed about Santa's location.
"Yes sir, especially since my son Sam would want to see that as well", General O'Shaughnessy replied.
