Fabela’s family said the veteran’s one birthday wish was to receive 100 cards to celebrate his age milestone, Fox News reported.

The video of Fabela’s reaction was posted onto his Facebook page, “Beyond 100,” on July 30 and was covered by Fox News this past Saturday.

Fabela’s daughter filmed him opening a package from “the big one” and he immediately smiled before saying, “that’s Trump.” Inside the envelope was a picture of the president with his signature.

The video has racked up over 2.3 million views to date and shows Fabela reading a card signed by the president and first lady Melania Trump.

Fabela became emotional as he read the heartfelt thank you from the White House, as his daughter looked on with pride.

“We hope your heart is filled with joy, knowing you have experienced this country’s greatest blessing: the freedom and affection of family and friends over a long, well-lived life,” he read.
