With Donald Trump as the President-elect, many people are already looking towards America’s future – towards the 2020 elections, that is. Due to the results of the 2016 elections, frustrated citizens have been protesting all over the country while googling “how to move to Canada.” But fear not Americans! Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has hinted that a political career is a possibility for his future.
The semi-retired wrestler has experience stealing the hearts of Americans thanks to his charming smile and charismatic demeanor that fans are begging to see in the White House one day. When asked about his political future, the actor admitted that it could happen.
“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out. I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. 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,” he revealed in an interview with GQ.
In addition to the interview, the 44-year-old actor even tweeted about the idea of him becoming president one day! “Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck,” he wrote online. With more and more people being on board with the idea, several media outlets have asked him about potentially running in the future. The guy has already dominated the entertainment industry and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him killing it in politics.
Vanity Fair is another media outlet that asked The Rock about his potential future in politics. “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.”
He may be known for his sweet wrestling moves and acting chops, but he has dipped his toes into the world of politics in the past. In 2000, he was in attendance at the Republican National Convention and encouraged young people to vote regardless of what party they were voting for.
But The Rock isn’t the only person who people are demanding to see run in the 2020 elections. Michelle Obama and Kanye West are two popular choices that many Americans want to see in the White House. Michelle Obama vs. Kanye West vs. The Rock? Now that is one high profile election that we would definitely like to see in the future.
