Young entrepreneur gets opportunity to mow White House lawn and meet President Trump


Frank Giaccio is an 11-year-old entrepreneur from Virginia. He wrote a letter to President Donald J. Trump, offering his service to the president and nation, and an opportunity has been carved out for him to do so.

Frank is in the neighborhood lawn-mowing business, and the generous young man offered to travel to Washington, D.C., and cut the White House grass. On Aug. 2, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read Frank’s letter to the president during a press briefing, in which he offers his services, including providing his own tools.

“Dear Mr. President, it would be my honor to mow the White House lawn for some weekend for you. Even though I’m only 10, I’d like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my own business,” read Sanders.

“I have been mowing my neighbors’ lawns for some time… Here’s a list of what I have and you are free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charged batteries for the weed whacker,” she continued.

Sanders said she had spoken with President Trump, who offered his support to Frank and invited him to visit to see “how the U.S. Park Service maintains the 18 acres of the White House complex,” said Sanders.

“The president is committed to keeping the American Dream alive for kids like Frank and we’re all looking forward to having him here,” Sanders continued.

She went on to explain that Frank had recently celebrated a birthday and turned 11; therefore, the president also wished to offer a birthday greeting.

On Wednesday, Sep. 13, Sanders revealed that Frank would be visiting the White House on Friday, the 15th of September, to work with the grounds-keeping team in the Rose Garden.

Frank was at the White House Friday, and not only did he get to mow the Rose Garden lawn, but he met with the president, receiving a high-five from the commander in chief.

Charmingly, the young man was so hard at work, he had to be asked to stop working so that he could speak with President Trump and get a few photos.

President Trump said Frank was the “real future of our country.”

Frank told the president that he’d like to be a Navy SEAL when he gets older. “He’s going to be a Navy SEAL, someday. He’s going to do great things for our country,” President Trump said.

He invited Frank into the Oval Office and commented that perhaps Frank would be president one day.
