11-Year-Old Boy Realizes Dream to Mow White House Lawn

Frank Giaccio of Falls Church, Va., wrote a letter to the president earlier this year expressing his wish to visit the White House and mow its famed lawn.

His letter was shared by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at a press briefing last month. "Even though I'm only 10, I'd like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for", Giaccio's letter read.

An 11-year-old boy has taken his burgeoning lawn mowing business to the next level by landing his biggest client yet: the White House. "I admire your business background and have started my own business", he wrote, adding that he has mowed his neighbors' lawns "for some time".

He spent the morning cutting the White House grass after writing to the president over the summer offering his services.

Trump told reporters that Frank is "the future of the country" and is about to be "very famous" from this viral moment, according to the Associated Press.

Frank eschewed modern technology and used a traditional gas push mower to cut the lawn. "Then, I'll answer that", he said.

Giaccio may not get paid the standard $8 he gets for mowing lawns, but an A-plus from the president of the United States is worth a whole lot more.

Standing with FX and his father, Mr Trump added: "We'll bring them into the Oval Office".

While he didn't charge for the Rose Garden job, the groundskeepers let him keep the work gloves.
