Yes folks, you read that title correctly! The former WWE wrestler has his sights set on the highest office in the land – the White House! In an interview with British GQ Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson unveiled some rather shocking (to say the least) news of his eagerness to run for president in the 2020 election. Johnson, the highest paid actor in Hollywood currently, feels he can make a real difference in America “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. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first.”
The WWE Hall of Famer told the publication that politics has always been a possibility, and he had always had thoughts of running for office – “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.’” When the subject of Trump’s leadership was mentioned, Johnson did not shy away from giving his opinion “We all have issues, and we all gotta work our s–t out. And I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out. I miss that part. Even if we disagree, we’ve got to figure it out.”
What are your thoughts on this?! Can you smell what the rock is cooking?! Given the current administration I don’t doubt that The Rock could become president – he seems very genuine.
