An 11-year-old boy had his wish to mow the White House lawn fulfilled Friday, and not even a chat with President Donald Trump could slow him down. Frank Giaccio of Falls Church, Virginia, wrote a letter to the president earlier this year expressing his wish to visit the White House and mow its famed lawn. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared the request with the media and said the White House would grant the wish. Giaccio was invited to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and spent Friday morning with one of the groundskeepers. When given a push mower, he got to work trimming the grass in the Rose Garden, outside the Oval Office. In the middle of the job, Trump walked outside and spoke to the boy. Video shared on social media showed him mow straight past the commander in-chief. Eventually, when he reached the end of the row, Giaccio stopped and chatted with Trump, who also gave the boy a high five. Trump later tweeted: “THANK YOU for doing a GREAT job this morning! @NatlParkService gives you an A+!”
