Dwayne Johnson Is Now 'Seriously Considering' Running For President

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said he's "seriously considering" running for president of the United States in 2024.

Since Johnson is busy promoting "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" and still has several projects lined up over the coming years, the actor can not possibly run for office in the next USA presidential elections, which is in 2020. Dwayne - who has attended both Republican and Democrat conventions in the past but says he is now registered as Independent - was the subject of a column in The Washington Post in June 2016 which stated he could win an election race.

Hart fully endorsed Johnson saying, "I think the world that we're living in today, you're seeing the real effect that genuine people like Dwayne have".

"It all started out of the blue", Johnson said, bringing up a June 2016 column in the Washington Post, which point-blank stated, "He could actually win".

"If it is a very real, overwhelming, positive, strong, 'We want you to run for president, ' and if I felt that I can step up to the plate and become a tremendous leader for our country and make a real difference and make change, I would do it", the HBO Ballers star said.

Johnson went on to say that he'll continue to watch their leaders in government, and like all Americans, to hope that their leaders exhibit poise, perspective and the ability to bring their country together during these tough times, which he said he doesn't feel their presidency is now doing. He added: "I care deeply about our country, and I care deeply about our people - especially now". George Clooney, a strong supporter of the Democratic party, has always been the subject of speculation he has eyes on the White House. Turns out Johnson's had this problem before, in that he's met super famous people and isn't super great at recognizing them: "I'm notorious for not realizing the celebrities I'm talking to. once had a 15minute conversation with a dude who I swore was the lead singer in an R&B funk band only to be told the next day it was Barry Bonds". Oh, that sounds like fun. "Right away, please." Republican businessman and former reality TV star Donald Trump is now the 45th President of the United States of America.
