President Duterte is a fan of former President Joseph Estrada.

Duterte extended his birthday greeting to Estrada via Facebook, saying he has huge admiration and respect for the former leader.

Estrada, former Manila Mayor, turned 83 last April 19.

“Hindi ko na sabihin yung age mo kasi hindi na natin kailangan magbilang sa katandaan nating ito pero ako, paabot ko lang ang snappy salute ko at paghanga ko sa iyo hanggang ngayon,” Duterte said in a video posted on Estrada’s Facebook feed.

Duterte said he admires Estrada not only for his brand of public service but also compassion for the poor.

“Matulungin ka pati ako. Talagang marunong ka makibagay sa kapwa mo tao. Diyan ako bilib sa iyo. Totoo ‘yan. Alam mo ‘yan,” he said.

“Malaki ang respeto ko kasi marunong ka mag-respeto ng kapwa tao,” he said.
