On June 19, 2018, Nieviv Sucuaje, a Filipina and a Facebook user who is in Taiwan, spotted a photo of President Rodrigo Duterte, edited beside a political candidate as part of the latter's campaign.

It appears that President Rodrigo Duterte is being utilized by a Taiwanese politician to feature his anti-medicate platform.

Sucuaje posted and shared her photos on Facebook which she personally captured, and captioned it with: "Wow oh, sikat c tatay dto sa Taiwan. Para sa coming election nila. CHERISH life to refuse dr_gs."

It has been said that Taiwan and the Philippines acknowledge each other as partners in the battle against big-time medicate trafficking, with Taiwan representative, Dr. Gary Song-Huann Lin who is denying that his nation at any point sent out unlawful medications to the Philippines.

That comment of Dr. Gary Song-Huann Lin came a day before President Duterte claimed that the Bamboo Triad, the alleged Taiwan-based medication triad, had been providing illicit medications in the Philippines, had joins with insurgent group.
