Creating political illustrations with the words "Biden" or "Trump"

I have created a few illustrations with the names of political candidates - and they get rejected for copyright reasons. Yet, when I search Adobe Stock, there are several images with the same terms.

 

What is the policy in terms of creating illustrations to promote politicians?

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Can you give some examples?

I'm almost certain you need permission from the political candidate to use their name or likeness on commercial or promotional materials.
