Actor Dwayne Johnson has expressed his willingness to run for the U.S. presidential election.
Dwayne Johnson said in an interview with the U.S. media NBC on April 13, “If the people want me, they can run for president,” and added, “I have a goal to unify the U.S. This is because the united nation is the strongest. This is not the first time Dwayne Johnson has been linked to a U.S. presidential bid. He was mentioned as a presidential candidate in 2017, but refused, saying he was “not ready.”
But in an interview with USA Today in February, he expressed interest, saying, “If people want to, I will positively consider running for president.” Newsweek’s three-day online survey of about 30,000 Americans on April 10 reported that “46% of Americans support Dwayne Johnson’s presidential bid,” quoting the report, “The fathers of the United States constitutionalists would never have imagined that a bald, tattooed, black and Samoan man would be mentioned as a presidential candidate.” Interviews with Dwayne Johnson about NBC’s presidential bid can be seen at the bottom.
