Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson reveals he would run for POTUS
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has revealed he would not rule out a presidential run in the future, if ‘the people’ wanted him in politics.
The wrestler-turned-movie star, 48, first mused over a run for the White House in 2017, when he claimed he would go against former President Donald Trump in 2020, yet after shelving last year’s plans he seems to be replenishing his idea.
He told US Weekly: ‘I would consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted. Truly I mean that, and I’m not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people… So I would wait, and I would listen.’
Dwayne is in the midst of plugging his new show Young Rock, set in 2032 and depicting his run for presidency, and during the promo trail he has revealed the next move in his wide-spanning career.
Speaking of his plans, he revealed he would be keeping an eye out for plans from fans: ‘I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground.’
In 2017, Dwayne entertained the possibility of challenging Trump for the White House during an appearance on The Tonight Show.
At the time, he had been left astonished and flattered at the public’s reaction to a statement he made in which he said he would consider running for the president.
He said: ‘I’ve been really been blown away. And it’s so flattering. And I think you have to question why. I think it’s because, you know, a lot of people want to see a different leadership today — I’m sorry, not different, but better leadership today, right?’
