On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a very interesting letter to America.
It came from Frank, a 10-year-old entrepreneur, who asked if he could cut the White House’s grass with his lawnmower. In the letter, the boy explained that he’s been mowing his neighbors’ lawns in the nearby town of Falls Church, Virginia and was itching to mow the White House lawn. And he just got a “yes” directly from President Donald Trump.
“Dear Mr. President,
It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn for some weekend for you, even though I’m only 10, I’d like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my own business. I’ve been mowing my neighbors’ lawns for some time, please see the attached flyer, here’s a list of what I have and you’re free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed whacker, I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charge batteries for the weed whacker, and I’ll do that with no charge.
SHS responded to Frank live by saying:
“Frank, I’m happy to report back to you that I just spoke with the President, he wanted me to be sure and tell you that you’re doing a great job and keep working hard. He also asked me, we found out when we called, to let you know that we would be reading this letter to wish you a happy birthday. I think Frank went from 10 to 11 in the time that we received and were able to respond to this letter, and he also wanted to invite you to spend a morning here at the White House with the groundskeeper.”
