11-year-old mows the lawn at the White House, meets President Trump

11-year-old Frank Giaccio gets the chance to mow the White House lawn. Elizabeth Keatinge (@elizkeatinge) has more.

When Frank Giaccio wrote to President Trump, he said it would be an honor to mow the lawn at the White House.

That dream came true on Friday morning.

 

 

Frank and his father, Greg Giaccio, arrived at the White House, and the 11-year-old — the proprietor of FX Mowing — got to work in the Rose Garden and met the president.

At one point, the president tried to commend the child.

"Great job!" he says over the noise of the lawn mower.

But Frank, called FX by his family, kept trucking along.

 

 

Eventually, the pair shared a high five.

Later, the president pat Frank on the back and called him the "future of our country," according to pool reports. He and his father also got the chance to see the Oval Office.

 

 

Frank, who recently celebrated his birthday, aspires to be a Navy SEAL, the president said. But Trump has even bigger dreams for the young man.

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