Sure, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of Hollywood’s most active stars at the moment between his freshly release The Fate Of The Furious and upcoming Baywatch and Jumanji films (among many others), but that’s not stopping him from considering a career in politics.
In a new profile piece from GQ, Johnson was asked about potentially making a run at the presidency in 2020 to which he replied:
“A year ago, it started coming up more and more…There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, ‘Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.’ I didn’t want to be flippant. ‘We’ll have three days off for a weekend! No taxes!’… I think that it’s a real possibility.”
Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. 👍🏾 More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read… I care DEEPLY about our county… and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again Washington Post. 🇺🇸 💪🏾
He’s supposedly already secured votes from the likes of Michael Moore, Zac Efron, and Elizabeth Warren.
Last year, Johnson was also asked for endorsements from both candidates but declined to publicly endorse either of them.
