President Donald Trump shared a heartwarming call with a 5-year-old Sunday while participating in NORAD’s Santa Tracker answering questions about Santa’s whereabouts.

Trump spoke with two randomly selected children at his residence in Mar-a-Lago who called into the hotline. The first child told the president he wanted building blocks for Christmas, to which he replied, “building blocks, that’s what I’ve always liked too. I always loved building blocks…well I predict Santa will bring you building blocks, so many you won’t be able to use them all.”

Trump’s next caller was a 12-year-old named Ryan who told Trump he wanted his grandmother to get out of the hospital. The president can be heard responding to Ryan at 3:39.


“So you want your grandma to get out of the hospital? That’s what your wish is? That’s great. That’s better than asking for some toy or something, that’s much better, right,” Trump exclaimed at Ryan’s wish. Ryan appears to have asked the president what he himself wanted for Christmas, to which Trump replied “peace, we’ve got prosperity, now we want peace.”

Trump wrapped up the call saying “so your grandma’s gonna be good, okay Ryan, she’s gonna be good.”
