An Entrepreneurial 11-Year-Old Mowed the Lawn at the White House

An Entrepreneurial 11-Year-Old Mowed the Lawn at the White House

An 11-year-old boy who asked the White House if he could mow the property's lawn was granted his wish Friday.

In response, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Trump "would love to" give him "the opportunity to mow the grass in the Rose Garden". He had written to the United States president earlier this year saying that he owned his own lawn-mowing business and it would an "honour" to mow the White House lawn.

An 11-year-old boy has taken his burgeoning lawn mowing business to the next level by landing his biggest client yet: the White House. Eventually, he turned around and shook Trump's hand.

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

But when someone offers to mow your lawn for free, it gets your attention. "It's nice to break away and do something a little lighter like that". Frank apparently wants to be a Navy SEAL someday, and the president believes "he'll make it". "Maybe he'll be president someday".

He told CNN that mowing the lawn was such an honour that he even waived his usual $8 fee.

On Friday, the boy got to meet President Donald Trump in person - while mowing the lawn at the White House.

And by the looks of things, the National Park Service may be out of a job, as Frank is not only all business when working, but he's also damn good.

The tweet included video highlights of FX's White House visit - complete with a photo of him posing with his elbows on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office next to Trump.
