On Wednesday, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders read aloud a letter from a 10-year-old boy who started his own lawn mowing business, asking if he could mow the White House lawn.
Sarah said the boy’s name is Frank, and Frank explained that he’s been mowing his neighbors’ yards in nearby Falls Church, Virginia and had been dying to mow the White House lawn. While it was a longshot, Frank still hoped that his letter would get to the President and maybe he’d have a chance to fulfill one of his dreams.
As it turns out, we actually have a President cool enough to make that happen.
Frank’s letter read:
“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.
After reading the letter, Huckabee-Sanders responded live to Frank, who had been informed she would be reading his letter during the televised press brieifing.
Here’s what she said:
“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.”

How cool is that? Can you imagine the excitement to come for Frank, being allowed to hang out for a day at the White House doing what he loves?
