A young boy wrote a letter to President Donald Trump this summer asking if he could mow the White House lawn had his wish come true Friday.
In late June, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders began a new tradition of reading letters from children during some White House news conferences.
Eleven-year-old yard entrepreneur Frank Giaccio offered to mow the White House lawn for free, and Sanders read his letter aloud to reporters in August.

Trump accepted the offer after the young boy said it would be an “honor to mow the White House lawn.” Giaccio, who was 10 when he wrote the letter but recently turned 11, also sent a brochure detailing other services he offers, which include weed-whacking.
Giaccio arrived at the White House on Friday ready to work, and he even got the opportunity to meet Trump.
Several images and videos have surfaced on social media of Frank mowing the lawn and his exchange with Trump, who thanked him for doing a “great job.”

“After writting @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, 11yr old Frank came to the @WhiteHouse with his with father to mow the lawn. Look who stopped by,” tweeted Dan Scavino Jr., the White House director of social media.
“A presidential high-five for Frank the lawnmower boy, while hard at working trimming the grass in the Rose Garden this morning,” wrote Mark Knoller, CBS News’ White House correspondent.

Frank said he typically charges $8 to mow a lawn, but did it for Trump for free.
Trump later tweeted his thanks.

Trump also said Frank is “the future of the country” and would become “very famous.”
After Frank said he wanted to grow up and become a Navy SEAL, Trump said, “He’ll make it.”
