Donald Trump Meets 11yo Boy Who Mowed White House Lawn

Frank Giaccio, who goes by the initials FX, was so focused on doing his job that he did not even notice when Mr Trump emerged from the White House to check out his work.

He kept right on pushing the mower in a long, straight row as Mr Trump walked alongside him.

When the boy finally paused, Mr Trump said “that’s the real future of the country right there — we’re lucky”.

FX, who lives in the Washington suburb of Falls Church, Virginia, had written to Mr Trump to tell him about his neighbourhood lawncare business.

In the letter that White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders read to reporters, FX said it would be his “honour to mow the White House lawn”, and he admired Mr Trump’s business acumen.

The boy also sent a menu of his lawnmowing services, which include weed-whacking.

Impressed, Mr Trump invited FX to the White House.

Mr Trump asked FX what he wanted to be when he grows up.

“A Navy seal! Well, he’ll make it,” Mr Trump exclaimed, as he stood with FX and his father.

“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 afterward.

He added that his day was “jam-packed” with media interviews, watering plants, mowing the lawn and visiting the Oval Office with his dad.

FX said he normally charges $8 per lawn but decided to mow the White House lawn free of charge.

For this job, FX donned goggles and ear plugs and pushed a mower belonging to the National Park Service.

He got to keep the black gardening gloves he used as a souvenir.

Mr Trump later tweeted his thanks, adding that National Park Service gave him an A plus for his work.
