On Friday morning, President Donald Trump was spotted walking on the White House lawn. It was a beautiful morning for a stroll, but that’s not why he was outside. Viewers quickly noticed that there was something “off” about Trump’s new gardener, who was seen in pictures taken from the Rose Garden as he mowed the grass beside the president.
This summer, the White House began the new tradition of reading aloud some of the letters President Donald Trump receives from children, according to IJR. First, there was the little boy called “Pickle,” who wrote to Trump because he wanted the president “to be his friend.” Then, there was a young boy named Frank Giaccio who offered to cut the White House lawn.
In August, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read aloud Frank’s letter offering to cut the White House lawn for free even though he usually charges $8. “It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you,” Frank wrote to Trump. “Even though I’m only ten, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for.”
“I admire your business background and have started my business,” added Frank. “I have been mowing my neighbors’ lawns for some time. Please see the attached flier. Here’s a list of what I have and you are free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charged batteries for the weed whacker. I will do this at no charge.”

On Friday morning, Frank’s wish came true. As one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world, Trump was enamored by Frank’s initiative to start his own business, and the president cordially invited him to the White House, where he was pictured mowing the law in the Rose Garden.
The president got what you might call a grassroots display of support at the White House, welcoming an 11-year-old Virginia boy who offered to help cut the lawn.
President Donald Trump high-fived Frank Giaccio, who lives in the Washington suburb of Falls Church. The White House says Frank wrote Trump to say he admires the president’s business acumen and runs his own neighborhood lawn-care business.
Frank was so focused on pushing the lawn mower, he didn’t notice Trump had emerged to greet him until the president was next to him in the Rose Garden.
Trump says Frank is “the future of the country” and will soon be “very famous.”
Frank said he wants to be a Navy SEAL, to which Trump exclaimed, “He’ll make it.” [Source: WFTV9]

Something tells me that Frank’s landscaping business is booming these days, and not just because of the publicity he’s gotten from mowing the White House lawn. If there’s one thing adults love to see, it’s a kid who’s willing to work. Sadly, that has become somewhat of a novelty in this day and age. Indeed, it seems that less and less influence is placed on developing a strong work ethic in the next generation. However, this is undoubtedly one of the most important character traits a parent can foster in their children. Frank’s parents are definitely doing something right.
Heck, if this kid lived in my neighborhood, I’d hire him in a heartbeat! I’d probably give him a nice little bonus, too. I would much rather see a young American boy breaking a sweat to earn a few bucks than give my money to some “undocumented worker” who’s only going to send it back to his family in Mexico.
Liberals will never admit it, but Frank completely shatters their argument that if it weren’t for the millions of illegal aliens in our country, there would be no one to pick our strawberries and mow our lawns. These are jobs that Americans don’t want and are unwilling to do, according to those on the left. Well, apparently not. Apparently, there are young people who would jump at the chance to perform manual labor for some spending money.
Perhaps that is why the liberal media doesn’t want to report this story. Or, perhaps it’s because it makes the president look like a really good guy, which has become somewhat of a mortal sin among members of the press. Either way, make sure to give Frank Giaccio the attention he deserves by sharing this story!
