As unbelievable as it sounds, there is a boy who made a wish that was as bizarre as they come and what is more, the highest office in America actually cleared it. 11 year old Frank Giaccio’s dream came true Friday morning when his wish to mow White House lawn (yes, you read that right) was granted by US President Donald Trump. And the US prez was very much there too!
Frank had, in August written a letter to POTUS asking if he could use his landscaping skills on the White House lawns. In his effort to make his case stronger, the 11 year old had also offered to bring extra fuel and charged batteries for the tools to be used. Explaining why he had wished to mow the White House garden, Frank in his letter wrote that he would like to show the country what young people like him are ready for, reported CNN.
Frank also waived off his $8 fee for mowing the garden. On asking why he had waived off his fee, the boy said his dad had asked him to do so. Frank’s wish letter was read out loud by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
Frank’s hard work was well appreciated by Trump who joined him as he trimmed the White House Rose Garden’s grass. Although Frank did not ask for money from the US President, he did get a ‘presidential’ high five.

Post his busy morning, Frank joined Sarah Sanders in the press briefing and thanked his father, White House press secretary and the President. On his part, Trump, on behalf on FLOTUS Melania and himself thanked Frank for the ‘great’ job he had pulled off in the morning. Also, on behalf of National Park Service, Trump rated Frank’s job as A+!
