25 Jun Taiwanese Politician Uses Pres. Duterte Photo In His Campaign To Get Votes
Mga higala! A Taiwanese politician from Hualien, Taiwan is now using President Rodrigo Duterte‘s photo in his campaign for their elections this November 2018.
The photo above was uploaded by Netizen Nieviv Sucuaje and was shared by social media personality FJ Andrade with a caption that said:
“This image is significant in more ways than one. First. The world is now accepting and admiring how our president is handling the drug problem, so much so that politicians from other countries are using PRRD’s image to get votes. Hindi lang siya effective sa Pilipinas, it seems even sa Taiwan.
The second and more important angle here is that PRRD’s image is being used positively in Taiwan – a country that is technically considered a rebel province by China. You would expect them to ridicule PRRD who is known to be close to the mainland government. Apparently there are those in the rebel state that thinks it is actually worthwhile to use the image of a character closely linked to that of their enemy – China. This is indeed a testament to the popularity and charisma of this old mayor from the province.”
According to comments on the post, this is something that has never happened anywhere else in the world. And it just shows how much our president has influenced other people and other countries with his strong-willed methods to fight corruption, crime, and illegal drugs.
