The Maui News - - FRONT PAGE -

WASH­ING­TON (AP) — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is tak­ing up an of­fer from an 11-year-old in Vir­ginia to help cut the White House grass.

That’s ac­cord­ing to pres­i­den­tial spokes­woman Sarah Huck­abee San­ders, who tells re­porters that “Frank from Falls Church, Va.,” will help the grounds crew cut the Rose Gar­den grass on Fri­day.

The boy, who San­ders said last month had just turned 11, wrote to Trump that he ad­mires the pres­i­dent’s busi­ness back­ground and has started his own neigh­bor­hood lawn care busi­ness. Ac­cord­ing to the let­ter San­ders read to re­porters, Frank wrote that it would be his “honor to mow the White House lawn.” Frank also en­closed a menu of his ser­vices, which include weed-whack­ing.

San­ders says the White House has let Frank know that Trump thinks he’s do­ing a good job.
