On Friday, 10-year-old Frank Giaccio became the talk of America, as he mowed the White House lawn. "I admire your business background and have started my own business", he wrote, adding that he has mowed his neighbors' lawns "for some time".

Huckabee Sanders said Trump would hire the boy, and also offer him a tour with White House groundskeepers, who would show him what it takes to maintain 18 acres of park.

Frank is hard at work in the Rose Garden and doing a great job!

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

Meet lawnmower boy, otherwise known as Frank Giaccio.

"This is Frank, he's going to be very famous, he's going to be a Navy SEAL one day, he's going to do great things for the country", Trump said. "We're lucky. That's the real future of the country", the president said.

So far it's gotten him a handshake photo in the Oval Office with the president, a spate of TV interviews and a laudatory tweet from Trump that included a slick video produced by the White House. "Even though I'm only ten, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for".

The President later joined Frank as he trimmed the Rose Garden's grass.

Once Frank reached the end of the lawn, however, he shook Trump's hand and gave him a big high-five before getting back to cutting the grass.
