Celebrity Presidents may just be the next big thing because Dwayne Johnson, also known as âThe Rock,â just let it slip that heâs thinking about running in 2024.
Johnsonâs remarks were in response to a poll that discovered nearly 50% of poll takers would be delighted to see the wrestling legend become President. Johnson responded that heâs âhonoredâ at the idea of serving his country and the American people.
This isnât the first time Johnson has teased a Presidential run. In a public interview with GQ magazine, the wrestling star turned actor stated that politics were definitely not out of the range of possibility for him. In fact, Johnson even referred to the thought of sitting on the Presidential throne as âalluring,â and stated it could be an opportunity for him to impact the lives of people around the world.
When asked what he would do as President, Johnson took a humble approach, saying he would try to listen to everyone, and include people that he didnât agree with in difficult conversations.
Many Americans are now wondering what it would be like to have Johnson as President. Johnsonâs political stances are somewhat ambiguous, but he does register as a Republican and has even attended the Republican convention.
There still isnât any confirmation from Johnson on whether he will run or not, but it seems likely. What do you think of âThe Rockâ becoming the next President?
