The Rock Says He Might Run For President

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says he consider running for president if that's what the American people want.


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has confirmed he's still interested in running for President of the United States someday. Speaking to USA Today, he said if the American people want him to run, he'll think about it earnestly.

"I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted," he said "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. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground."

This latest comment came after The Rock originally broached the subject in 2017, when he told Ellen that he was "seriously considering" making a run at the top government office in the US.

We do know a little bit about The Rock's political leanings. Ahead of the 2020 US Election, The Rock said he has voted for both parties in the past as a political independent and a centrist. But in 2020, he officially endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

"Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, kindness, and respect," he said.
