Dwayne Johnson 'The Rock' Says He Could Run US Presidency

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson has said that there is “a real possibility” that he will one day run for US president.

The wrestler-turned-actor, best known for his appearances in the Fast and the Furious franchise, made the comments during an interview with GQ in which he also criticised Donald Trump’s notorious travel ban.

Johnson, who has spoken previously about a possible career in politics, said that he began to consider the prospect of a presidential run after reading an article in the Washington Post that suggested him as a viable candidate.

“A year ago it started coming up more and more,” he said. “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.’”

Johnson, who did not declare allegiances to either the Democrats or Republicans, said his campaign would be built on cooperation and inclusion.

Johnson was reluctant to criticise Trump, saying that it was “hard to categorise right now how I think he’s doing”. He did, however, condemn the administration’s attempt to ban entry to the US from several Muslim-majority countries.

Johnson also revealed that he was approached by the presidential campaigns of both Trump and Hillary Clinton for an endorsement, but declined the offers.
