White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read the letter from the child named Frank at a briefing last month.

She said Frank, from Falls Church, Virginia, "embodies the enterprising and ambitious spirit of America."

In his letter, the child offered to mow the lawn "some weekend" free of charge.

"Even though I'm only 10, I'd like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for," Sanders said the child wrote.

Frank has since turned 11.

So, on Friday the White House brought Frank over to mow the White House lawn. He was very focused on his work.

Frank is hard at work in the Rose Garden and doing a great job!

He even wore goggles and gloves for the occasion.

Frank was all business. Didn't even stop to say hi when POTUS came out.

Trump came out to greet him, but Frank was so focused he didn't even acknowledge the president at first.
