Trump celebrates with Congressional Republicans in the Rose Garden of the White House after the House of Representatives approved a plan to repeal major parts of Obamacare and replace it with the Republican healthcare plan.

Frank Giaccio of Falls Church, Virginia, is encouraged by Trump while he mows the lawn at the White House. The 11-year-old, who wrote the president requesting to mow the lawn, was so focused on the job he didn't notice the president until he was right next to him.
