Little 11-year-old Frankie had a side business of mowing lawns for which he charged 8 bucks, but there was one lawn he offered to mow for free. That lawn belonged to the White House.
The White House has a new tradition of reading letters sent by children, and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read Frank’s letter out loud. In the letter, Frank offered to cut the White House’s lawn for free. Here’s the exact letter Frank sent to the White House:
It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you. Even though I’m only ten, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my business. I have been mowing my neighbors’ lawns for some time. Please see the attached flier. Here’s a list of what I have and you are free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charged batteries for the weed whacker. I will do this at no charge.
And on Friday morning, the Rose Garden was a scene to see. Little Frankie, from Falls Church, VA was invited to mow the White House lawn.
Frank was mowing the lawn in front of the Oval Office, accompanied by President Trump. President Trump surprised Frank while he was mowing and told him “Wow! Great job Frank!” which made Frank even more excited.
When the boy finally finished mowing, Trump exclaimed “the future of our country right here” and asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, to which Frank said a Navy Seal. Trump said that Frank will definitely become one with his devotion and persistence.
Little Frank said that this is his “biggest day so far” and that his father doubted that he’d get to meet the President.
President Trump later that day tweeted: “THANK YOU for doing a GREAT job this morning! @NatlParkService gives you an A+!”
After that, Frank received a tour of the White House and took pictures he’ll remember his entire life.
It looks like some dreams do come true!
