    he had grown to actually like

    The political adviser has been invited by the President for his morning constitutional. The adviser "could easily have passed up the opportunity":
    "But, his President was calling. It was a President who helped him save his company money. It was a President who followed his every instruction. It was a President he had grown to actually like."
    What does "like" mean here: "like the President actually is" or "the adviser likes the President"?
    Thank you.
