11-year-old entrepreneur mows White House lawn after writing adorable letter to President Trump

An 11-year-old boy with an entrepreneurial spirit mowed part of the White House lawn on Friday after writing to President Donald Trump to ask for the privilege.

Frank Giaccio spoke to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day” on Friday before he started work and expressed how excited he is to do the job.

“I always wanted to do something big,” he said. “And so I was like ‘why not just start here?'”

Giaccio said he charges $8 to do a lawn near his Virginia home but was happy to say he was charging “zero” to do the White House.

Camerota asked him if he thought out the idea “because the president can probably pay you more than $8.”

But Giacco said his dad advised him to do it for free.

Giacco did not mow the entire White House lawn, but will be working in the Rose Garden.

He said he didn’t know if he would get a chance to meet the president, and if he does he is uncertain what he will say.

“It depends on what is he gonna ask me,” he said. “Then I will answer that.”

Giaccio caught the attention of the White House after writing a letter asking to mow the White House lawn, which press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read in August.

“Dear Mr. President. It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn for some weekend for you. Even though I’m only 10, I’d like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for,” he wrote.

“I admire your business background and have started my own business,” he said. “I’ve been mowing my neighbors yards for some time.”

Giaccio offered to bring his own equipment, but the White House provided the equipment for him.

After his CNN interview, Giacco told Fox News’ “Mornings with Maria” that “It’s pretty much the best day of my life.”
