( - President Donald Trump has accepted the "amazing opportunity" presented to him by two young Maryland girls who love to cook.

At Tuesday's press briefing, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders read the letter written to Trump by 11-year-old Natalie and her 8-year-old cousin Celia:

Dear Mr. President, I'm Natalie and I'm 11 years old, almost 12. My cousin, Celia, who is eight years old and have loved to cook since we practically were born.

If you don't believe me, check out the pictures we've enclosed. We are more than cousins. We are best friends. From the time we were very little, we've helped our nona in the kitchen, therefore we are very good cooks for little girls.

The reason I am writing is to offer you an amazing opportunity. We would love to cook for you and your family at your home, or you're most welcome to come to my house if you prefer. It would be such an honor to make you a meal.

We don't think you get many home-cooked meals since you're always so busy, and we read that you only sleep four hours a night. Please, please call us and let us cook for you. Love, Natalie. P.S., our pop-pop says that you are doing a great job, thank you for keeping us safe.



Sanders responded from the podium:

Natalie, I'm happy to tell you that I talked to the president about your letter this morning, and he and the first lady would like to take you up on your very kind offer. We have an amazing kitchen and culinary staff here at the White House, and the president and the first lady would like for you to come over and work alongside them sometime very soon.

He said to tell your pop-pop and nona hello, and to tell your mother congratulations for raising such a brave and talented little girl. Most importantly, he said to tell you to always believe in yourself and know that in America, you can achieve anything through hard work, determination and perseverance. And sometimes, you just have to take a chance and put yourself out there. That's exactly what you did with your letter, and we're excited to meet you in person soon.
