  • 11-year-old boy with lawn mowing business cuts White House grass

President Donald Trump greeted the 11-year-old who volunteered to mow the White House lawn free of charge on Friday, giving him a high-five.

Frank "FX" Giaccio from Falls Church, Virginia, realized a dream on Friday morning when he mowed the lawn in the Rose Garden.

But Sanders offered Twitter audience a look at the mower Frank was using, adding that he was "doing a great job".

Frank, a young entrepreneur, had a pitch for the dealmaker-in-chief: He wanted to mow the White House lawn.

I've been mowing my neighbor's lawn for some time.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders shared Frank's letter at an August press briefing and announced that the president had accepted his offer.

Trump said the boy is the "future of our country" and added that "maybe he'll be president".

"I didn't actually know I was going to come up on TV", Frank said.

"Even though I'm only 10, I'd like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for", Sanders read.

After Frank finished cutting the lawn, Trump invited him into the Oval Office.

Eleven-year-old Frank doesn't stop mowing the Rose Garden lawn when the president comes out to meet him. And two Park Service employees confirmed that Frank did an excellent job.

When Trump is finally able to get his attention, Frank could be seen shaking the president's hand before getting back to work.

Giaccio capped off the day with a trip to the Oval Office.
