Rock May Run President 2020
Now that Donald Trump has become the first president-elect without holding prior political office, it seems the doors to the Oval Office are wide open. So why *shouldn’t* Dwayne The Rock Johnson be strategizing his journey to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?!
At a Moana press conference over the weekend, the pro wrestler–turned-movie star smiled when Vanity Fair asked him about the prospect of running for president in 2020.
I wouldn’t rule it out, he said. It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.Giphy
Johnson famously spoke at the Republican National Convention in 2000, but has also attended the Democratic National Convention. This isn’t the first time he’s teased us with his political dreams, either. Back in June, he told Britain’s GQ , I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out.
I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring, he continued. 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 Jumanji star also tweeted back in March that maybe one day he’d consider running for prez.https://twitter.com/TheRock/status/713338883187032064
Hey, we all know stranger things have happened. And while a lot could change in the next four years, we can still dream of a heated Rock/Kanye debate at the 2020 Democratic primaries.
