Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Considering a Presidential Run in the Future. During a recent interview with USA Today, Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock” shared insight into his new NBC series “Young Rock” which features family friendly versions of key points throughout the wrestler and actors life that led him to where he is today. In the series we also get to see The Rock running for President of the United States. Though this has not come to fruition yet, Johnson had teased he was thinking about running in the last election, but is still willing to run in future elections if voters pushed for him to become a presidential candidate.
Dwayne shared a post to Instagram that shared a news piece saying 46% of American’s would be in support of Dwayne Johnson running for President according to a recent poll. Johnson responded, “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 🙏🏾💪🏾🇺🇸”
Dwayne previously told USA Today, “I would consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted,” he continued. “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.”
