Maybe he’ll be pres­i­dent once he’s fully mown

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

WHO said the youth of to­day have no work ethic. An 11-year-old boy has shown the rest of Amer­ica that the sat­is­fac­tion of a job well done has not been lost on the next gen­er­a­tion be­neath an avalanche of online games and iPads.

Frank Gi­acco, from the city of Falls Church in Vir­ginia, wrote to Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump not only of­fer­ing to mow the White House lawns, but to do it for free.

“I would like to show the na­tion what young peo­ple like me are ready for,” he wrote.

And when the White House took him up on his of­fer, Frank wasn’t get­ting swept up in the ex­cite­ment of it all.

The young­ster took the job so se­ri­ously he didn’t even have time to greet Pres­i­dent Trump, de­ter­minedly push­ing the mower straight past him. “Maybe he’ll be Pres­i­dent,” Mr Trump said. Af­ter fin­ish­ing his task, Frank said it was “prob­a­bly the big­gest day of my life so far”.
