Frank Giacco granted wish to mow White House lawns for free
AN 11-year-old boy’s dream has come true with Donald Trump accepting his offer to mow the White House lawns free of charge.
Frank Giacco penned a letter to the White House offering his landscaping services, according to the Independent.
“I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for”, he wrote in a letter read by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“The President is committed to keeping the American dream alive for kids like Frank”, Ms Sanders said.
But when Frank arrived to get the job done, he was all business. The youngster took the job so seriously that he didn’t even have time to greet the US President, determinedly pushing the mower straight past him.
Video shared on social media shows Trump approaching Frank, who goes by the initials FX, but there was no time to lose for the blossoming landscaper.
“He’s taking it very seriously”, a voice can be heard saying.
FX appeared to be more interested in a subsequent photograph shared by White House social media director Dan Scavino that shows him posing with Trump in the Oval Office.
Standing with FX and his father, Mr Trump said before heading into the White House: “We’ll bring them into the Oval Office. Maybe he’ll be president.”
“It’s probably the biggest day of my life so far,” FX said afterwards.
He reportedly said his day was “jam-packed” with media interviews, watering plants, as well as mowing the lawn and the visit to the Oval Office with his dad.
“It was a lot bigger than I thought,” he said.
