Is it possible that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has his sights set on the White House in the near future? That possibility, it seems, isn’t entirely off the table. Johnson discussed social media rumors that he was open to becoming our commander-in-chief someday while speaking with USA Today to promote his new comedy series Young Rock, which is based on his early life.
“If the people wanted it, I would consider a presidential run in the future. “I truly mean that, and my response is not in any way flippant,” the former WWE star and father of three said. “It would be up to the people to decide….” As a result, I would wait and listen. My finger would be on the pulse, and my ear to the ground.”
These gossip about the 48-year-old leading man aren’t the first we’ve heard. When Trump was just starting his presidency in 2017, he told GQ, “I’d like to see higher leadership.” When there is a disagreement with a large group of people — such as the media — I feel like it informs me that I could be better.”
“We all have issues, and we all got to work our s%#@ out. And I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out. I miss that part,” he continued at the time.
“Even if we disagree, we’ve got to figure it out. Because otherwise, I feel, as an American, all I hear and all I see in the example you’re setting is ‘Now I’m shutting you out. And you can’t come.’ [Disagreement] informs us. The responsibility as president — I [would] take responsibility for everyone. Especially when you disagree with me.”
“If there’s a large number of people disagreeing, there might be something I’m not seeing, so let me see it,” he said. “Let me understand it.”
