Boy, 11, gets White House lawn-mowing gig

The White House said FX had written to Mr Trump to say he admired the president's business acumen and ran his own neighbourhood lawn-care business. Frank got a high-five from the president, who called him "the future of the country".

Frank Giaccio, 11, of Falls Church, Va., was too occupied with trimming the Rose Garden lawn Friday morning to hear President Trump approach him to thank him for his heart work. Eventually, he turned around and shook Trump's hand.

Trump introduced Frank to the assembled media and then invited him (and his father) into the Oval Office.

"Great job!" he says over the noise of the lawn mower. "It's nice to break away and do something a little lighter like that".




"I always wanted to do something big and so I was like, 'Why don't we just start here?' This seems like the ideal example", Frank, of Falls Church, Virginia, told Camerota.

"It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you", Frank wrote. But he said that Frank, the oldest of four children, began supporting Trump early in the Republican primary debates.

In fact, when President Trump came up to him and said he was doing a "great job" Frank just kept mowing until the groundskeeper and Frank's dad stepped in. "Maybe he'll be president someday". When given a push mower, he got to work trimming the grass in the Rose Garden, outside the Oval Office. "One of my younger kids wants to write NASA to get a trip to the moon", Giaccio said.
