An 11-year-old boy earned a "great job" and a high five from US President Donald Trump for mowing the lawn today.

Frank Giaccio, from Falls Church, Virginia, wrote the president earlier this year saying that he owned his own lawn- mowing business and it would an "honor" to mow the lawn.

The accepted his offer and Frank was invited to mow the grass in the Rose Garden today under the watchful eye of uniformed park service workers.

Wearing goggles, a red shirt, khaki shorts, black sneakers and work gloves, Frank went to work in the Rose Garden around 9:30 AM.

Trump appeared about 10 minutes later, gave Frank a high five and told him he was doing a "great job."
