Donald gives boy a boost
– 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”. –
