Don­ald gives boy a boost

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - NEWS -

– An 11-year-old boy earned praise for a “great job” and a high five from US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump for mow­ing the White House lawn yes­ter­day.

Frank Gi­ac­cio, from Falls Church, Vir­ginia, wrote to the pres­i­dent ear­lier this year say­ing that he owned his own lawn-mow­ing busi­ness and it would be an “hon­our” to mow the White House lawn.

The White House ac­cepted his of­fer and Frank was in­vited to mow the grass in the Rose Gar­den un­der the watch­ful eye of uni­formed park ser­vice work­ers.


Wear­ing gog­gles, a red shirt, khaki shorts, black sneak­ers and work gloves, Frank got down to work at 9.30am.

Trump ap­peared about 10 min­utes later, gave him a high five and told him he was do­ing a “great job”.

In­ter­viewed on Fox Busi­ness net­work be­fore head­ing to the White House, Frank said the day was shap­ing up to be “pretty much the best day of my life”. –
