On Friday, 11-year-old Frank Giaccio's dreams came true as he motored a lawn mower around the White House lawn. Giaccio was apparently so focused on mowing straight lines in the Rose Garden, however, that he didn't even notice when President Trump came up to say hello:
Frank was all business. Didn't even stop to say hi when POTUS came out. pic.twitter.com/SpB43z1Jwp

Giaccio's Friday morning of mowing the lawn and mingling with the president happened thanks to a letter the Falls Church, Virginia, boy wrote to Trump last month. In the letter, Giaccio noted his admiration of Trump's business prowess, pointing out that he'd started a lawn-mowing business of his own. He said it would be his "honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend" free of charge, an offer Trump officially accepted this week.
Trump eventually did catch Giaccio's attention to give him a high five for a lawn well mowed. Becca Stanek
President Trump greets Frank, who is the young man that wrote the White House and asked if he could mow the lawn. Awesome moment. pic.twitter.com/dcHHe4gAp2
