"Even though I'm only 10, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for," Frank wrote. The young entrepreneur even offered to bring extra fuel and batteries for the power mower and weed whacker equipment he uses. Sanders said she spoke with the President and not only did he want to pass along the message to Frank that he's "doing a great job," but he also wanted to invite Frank to the White House to cut the grass in the famous Rose Garden. Sanders added, "it's our responsibility to keep the American dream alive for kids like Frank."


I'll be interested to see how this can be spun into Trump being bad somehow.

It's sad that the first thing I thought of when I read this, is how the Tr-Hators on ATS would find a fault with this. But I suppose that is what hate does to a person, it enters the body and then seeps out of every pour.

Congrats to this young man, I suspect he will be a small business owner and a successful one at that. Way to go Frank.

Trump just wants to boss around a little kid.

I hope others see it that way.
It was intended as humour.

Thank you.

No offense, OP, but I hate these self-promoting types of "Hey, look at me, I can/will get some free publicity!" stuff.
My second thought is where are the parents in the outing of this charming child's attempt for attention?
My third thought is why did I even let any of this info creep into my sensibilities?

Why did you ruin a potentially interesting story by putting in the cheap pop at 'tr-hators'?


And hey, look, the story is from CNN, and it's not negative about Trump.

I saw this a few days ago and was pretty impressed that Trump got the kid put through to the groundskeeper, but more impressed by the kid's spirit and work ethic.

This kid is going places.

and we all know the President loves a good deal.


1 A week ago or so Trump said something as the media has to change soon (dont remember were though)
2 CNN for sale
3 Trump 'creates' own newschannel(!)
4 Google Employee exposing company as being leftist .
5 Positive words next to the word president.... (!)

Conclusion :

Heads will roll in the near future.

If that's a challenge...
Exploitation of child labour.
Allowing equipment to be used by operator without formal training.
Taking work away from local resident.
Failing to follow federal procurement procedures.
Grooming.
They could really throw the book at him.

you connected too many dots. Google wins as being leftist so no.

Link me to trump news. (he doesnt have the architecture in place)

Cnn willl be bought by cbs parent company or the realatives like ATT..

Your first point "trump says media must change"...

he obviously doesnt control the media.. If he did.... "Stop saying lies about me!" But he does not.

So only lying heads will roll with fakish news stories. Editors better step it up and fact check.. There is plenty above board to hate..

the overboard lies detract to the point you make a lefty like me your enemy.

It's work to be performed for the federal govt.

A contract should have gone up for bid so other companies could compete for the work.

Who authorized a non-competative contract for this kid?

Is he permitted to perform this labor for the Govt.?

What is the Ability One requirement for this type of labor?

Does he meet OSHA safety standards?

This was completely irresponsible of the President!

yeah sorry , I connected more than one dot ... do that sometimes also wear a tin foil hat , and practice mongolian throat singing ... Just watch what will happen.... the word 'love' in proximity to president well that's a first... This article shouldn't be on CNN every editor would reject it... But they didn't so something is changing.

funny how only trumpets are weighing in on how it will be spun... who gives a toss, at least the spelling was revised to make it look legit this time. was the letter folded too? was it received via telegram.

Never thought I'd say this but hey, that was pretty nice of the man! Seriously. I remember being young and just wanting a chance to show what I could do, that I was willing to work hard and learn what ever anyone was willing to teach me.... To have the White House offer you a shot no matter how small, that's something that boy will remember long after he's become a Man. (or whatever else he wants to become, ya know... 2017 and what not)
