'DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON FOR PRESIDENT 2020' ... Is a campaign we wish was happening...
There's been a lot of speculation about whether The Rock is going to run for President in 2020 - these rumours backed up by Dwayne's legit interest in getting involved in politics (see below).
Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. 👍🏾 More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read... I care DEEPLY about our county... and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again Washington Post. 🇺🇸 💪🏾
BUT it looks like 2020 is a bit too earlier for The Rock, and he wants to learn more before he considers starting a campaign.
When asked about his plans to run in 2020, The Rock told Vanity Fair:
"Unfortunately I don’t see it happening in 2020. It’s a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills. There’s a lot of ground to cover, and due to my schedule, it’s not possible in 2020. I have so much respect for the position. It’s something that I seriously considered. What I need is timem to go out and learn."
Damn... Maybe 2024?
