Dwayne Johnson has revealed that he has been approached multiple times to run for president of the United States.
The Black Adam actor revealed on Trevor Noah’s new podcast Why Now? that a survey of 30,000 American adults in 2021 revealed that he is interested in running for president in late 2022.
He revealed that he had been contacted. “I was moved,” Johnson said.
“I was moved and honored.” “I will tell you this a little bit: At the end of 2022, I received a visit from an official asking if I was running or could run,” the former WWE wrestler continued.
“It was a big event, and it happened out of the blue,” he continued. “It happened one by one, and they brought this inquiry along with their extensive research demonstrating my suitability as a candidate if I ever pursued that course.”
It was all so surreal because that was never my goal. My goal was not to become a politician. There’s a lot to dislike about politics. ” However, Johnson has previously been brought up concerning other presidential contenders.
In addition to featuring his presidential bid on his sitcom Young Rock, he told Variety that he is “realistically considering” a 2024 presidential run.
Additionally, Johnson responded to an approval poll asking for men in fanny packs to join the club, and if that were to happen, I would be honored to serve the public.
” During his podcast, he added that his job impacts his personal life and time with his daughter. “This was one of the main discussions with the parties,” he said.
But he didn’t seem to have completely ruled out running, saying, “If ultimately that’s what people want, then of course we’ll consider it.” Elsewhere, Mr. Johnson called on a Paris museum to update the skin color of a wax figure after online ridicule.
