President Rodrigo R. Duterte has lauded Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso for his resolve to clean the city and implement its ordinances. Duterte said he watches the Manila official's speeches during events.

"Bilib ako sa kanya kaya nanonood ako kung nagsasalita siya (I'm impressed by him that's why I listen whenever he speaks)," Duterte said in a media interview after the oath-taking of the Malacañang Press Corps, Malacañang Cameramen Association, and Presidential Photojournalists Association in Malacañang.

"Mas mahusay siya kaysa akin, sa totoo lang. Oo, may nakita ako na mas mahusay ang resolve niya kaysa akin. Plus two ako sa kanya (He's doing better than me to be honest. I can see that his resolve is better than mine so I give him plus two)," he added.

Since he assumed office, Domagoso had earned a huge following and heaped praises for his sustained efforts to clean the city.

He also engaged with several members of the diplomatic corps and even officials of the national government to relay his visions for a "greener" capital.

He also vowed to turn Manila's heritage sites into must-visit destinations for tourists, and partnered with the Department of Tourism for the new Manila tourism circuit.

Domagoso earlier thanked Duterte for his praises, saying the chief executive was the "inspiration" for the kind of leadership he displays.
