Donald Trump shadows aspiring billionaire Frank

On Aug. 2, as reporters lobbed questions about sanctions on Russian Federation following its meddling in the 2016 election, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took the time to read a letter to President Donald Trump from Frank Giaccio, a then-10-year-old from Falls Church, Virginia.

- An 11-year-old Virginia boy got an early start mowing the White House lawn this morning.

When the boy finally paused, the president called him the "future of the country right here" and asked what he wanted to be when he grew up. "Well, he'll make it".

"Maybe he'll be president", Trump said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read Frank's letter during a daily briefing in August.

"It's probably the biggest day of my life so far", FX said afterwards.

I've been mowing my neighbor's lawn for some time. "Then, I'll answer that", he said.

He offered to cut the grass and run a Weed Whacker at the White House for Free.

No less than President Donald Trump himself came out to greet him as he tended to the Rose Garden's grass.

An 11-year-old boy got his wish to mow the White House lawn this week.

And by the looks of things, the National Park Service may be out of a job, as Frank is not only all business when working, but he's also damn good.

"My dad did not think I was going to meet [Trump], but when I saw the president just walking down and he turned.I was like, well, that's that", Giaccio told reporters. "NatlParkService gives you an A+!" "One of my younger kids wants to write NASA to get a trip to the moon", Giaccio said.
