Estrada faced a lot of opposition but contributed quite a lot as an actor and in his presidency. Despite the problems he has faced, many still believe in him as he continues to try to regain his presidency. While not every aspect of his term in office was successful, many still consider him a worthy opponent in presidential races and he may find a place in politics again.
