(CNN) - A young boy who wrote to President  Donald Trump offering to cut the grass at the White House will get his wish granted Friday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that 11-year-old Frank will help mow the lawn at the Rose Garden.

She read Frank's letter to Trump at an August press briefing after some testy exchanges about immigration.

Frank says he started his own business mowing neighbors' lawns in Falls Church,  VA and wrote that he admired the president's business success.

He offered to cut the grass and run a weed whacker at the White House for free.
