Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson For President?
You know what they say, anything is possible! Well it looks like Dwayne Johnson may be taking that timeless phrase into action! The movie star and all around cool dude got too real when talking to GQ magazine about possibly running for the next presidential election in 2020.
"I think that it’s a real possibility. A year ago, it started coming up more and more. 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."
The actor has been riding high on success with the Fast & Furious franchise, and he’s starring in the upcoming television to film adaption of the classic 90’s beach drama Baywatch.
The actor did not publicly endorse a candidate during the 2016 election. When regarding the controversy surrounding the recent travel ban proposal by President Donald Trump, Johnson was adamant about his disagreeing with the policy saying,
"I completely disagree with it. I believe in our national security to the core, but I don't believe in a 'ban' that bans immigrants. I believe in inclusion. Our country was built on that, and it continues to be made strong by that."
Could we be seeing a future with “The Rock” as our president? Like I said before, anything IS possible and who knows, maybe Johnson can bring on his fellow Fast & Furious co-stars to hold positions in The Cabinet! Whatever it may be, Johnson has always been an endearing and thoughtful piece of character, and perhaps that wonderful aspect of his personality may have him filling the country’s most exclusive job around.
