'Frank from Falls Church' mows lawn at White House

So today, an eleven-year-old kid named Frank Giaccio got a wish of his fulfilled - he mowed the White House lawn.

In a letter to Trump, he said "it would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you".

Frank, who considers himself a young entrepreneur, told ABC News he's a "huge fan" of Trump and that "both mowing the lawn and meeting the president" were the highlights of his day. He quickly showed his own entrepreneurial powers, passing out flyers in his Falls Church, Va., neighborhood in the D.C. metro area and lining up two neighbors as weekly mowing customers.

On Friday, the boy got to meet President Donald Trump in person - while mowing the lawn at the White House. "We're lucky. That's the real future of the country", the president said.

Trump tweeted a video in the afternoon that recapped Frank's day, which included his appearance in the briefing room, meeting the President and Vice President Mike Pence and visiting the Oval Office.

This year's exercises, called Zapad ("West") 2017, are the first since Russian Federation annexed the Crimea in 2014. NATO's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg earlier this month called on Russian Federation to "be fully transparent".

The president clapped in approval as he walked toward Frank "FX" Giaccio, who was hard at work cutting the grass.

Frank eschewed modern technology and used a traditional gas push mower to cut the lawn.

Trump even took some time to check out how Frank was doing and have a chat with him and his father.

Frank said he wants to be a Navy SEAL, to which Trump explained, "He'll make it". "It was a lot bigger than I thought", he said. On Friday, Frank joined the groundskeeping crew to trim the grass at the Rose Garden.
