Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson considering run for U.S. President


Dwayne Johnson, actor of “Fast & Furious” stated on Monday that he would run for President of the United States if he thought he had enough support from Americans.

Johnson, 48, has been toying with a potential White House run for many years. He is one of the highest-paid and most popular actors in the United States.

Johnson said in a Monday preview to a complete interview that will broadcast this weekend on “Sunday Today With Willie Geist,” “I do have that goal to unite our country, and I also feel that if this is what the people want, then I will do that.”

“I am passionate about making sure our country is united, because a united country, as we know, is its strongest,” He said “And I want to see that for our country.”

The former wrestler did not specify which political party he would represent.

According to Newsweek, Johnson’s remark comes after a survey showed that at least 46% of Americans would back his presidential candidacy.


Johnson, also known as “The Rock,” expressed his gratitude for the poll.

Johnson earlier described the survey as “Humbling,” “I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club, but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people,” he said.

The actor-life wrestler’s is depicted in this year’s new comedy “Young Rock,” which stars Johnson as himself as he campaigns for president in the year 2032 and flashes back to his earlier days.

Johnson joins a lengthy line of American celebrities who have campaigned for political office.

Matthew McConaughey, star of “Magic Mike” and Caitlyn Jenner, former Olympic champion, are reportedly considering running for governor of Texas and California, respectively.

Johnson acknowledged to ET in 2018 that he attended meetings to “understand more” about the position.

He stated at the time, “[The meetings are] just really to understand more and to learn more.” “… The idea of running for president has been very flattering that a good amount of people have been wanting me to run and, honestly, it’s so flattering, but I feel like the most respectful thing I could do is just learn as much as I could possibly do.”

“To become president, that is a skill set that I feel like you have to know,” Johnson continued. “You have to put in the time — like years and years of service, so anyway, that’s where I’m at. I just want to learn as much as I possibly can.”

In a 2016 interview with British GQ, he said that he hadn’t “ruled politics out,” but that he had other priorities.

“I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure,” Johnson said. “I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale.”
