The Rock Running For President In 2020?


Since the results of last week's presidential election, the country's reaction has been um, mixed to say the least. If the election taught us anything though, it's to never rule anything out in the process. A movement has started for Dwayne The Rock Johnson to run for president in 2020. Donald Trump became the first political 'outsider' to run for office and win, so why not The Rock, right? Johnson recently shared an article that explained why he should run for president and he didn't rule it out.

Cool piece on why I should run for President. Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck..

Vanity Fair recently spoke with The Great One about his new film Moana and asked him if he would consider running for president. Here's what The Rock had to say:

"I wouldn't rule it out,” Johnson, said. “It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

The Rock also posted on his Instagram page last June that, “The idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring.”

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. ?? ??

Overall, this seems to be a pretty big movement forming. Would you like to see The Rock run for president? He sure would have our vote, I mean, he's The Rock!
