“I have what it takes to unite people” – Dwanye Jonson speaks

Listen Now

The professional wrestler turned star actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said on Monday that he would run for US president if he felt he had enough support from Americans.

Johnson, 48, one of the highest-paid and most popular actors in the United States, has been flirting with a possible White House bid for several years.

The ex-wrestler did not say which party he would represent or when he might launch any bid for the White House.

His remarks follow an online public opinion poll released last week that found some 46% of Americans would consider voting for Johnson.

“I do have that goal to unite our country and I also feel that if this is what the people want, then I will do that,” Johnson said when asked about his presidential ambitions in an interview broadcast on the Today show on Monday.

It seems that it’s what the people want — at least those polled by Piplsay. The topic was Hollywood celebs as politicians — and what Americans think about it. The poll results, released last Tuesday, suggested that nearly half of all U.S. adults would vote for him in a presidential election. (The poll was conducted online with 30,138 adults voting between April 2 and April 4.)

Johnson called the results “humbling,” saying, “I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club.” However, “if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people.”
