The Rock further comments on a poll that says 46% of Americans would support him running for President of the United States.
A recent poll showed that 46% of Americans would support Dwayne Johnson throwing his hat in a Presidential election one day and speaking with Vanity Fair, the former WWE Champion kept it very real, admitting that he doesn't know anything about politics but the amount of support his fellow Americans have shown him does hold a lot of weight in his heart and mind.
“You know, at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics. I don’t know the first thing about policy. I care deeply about our country. I care about every fucking American who bleeds red, and that’s all of them. And—there’s no delusion here—I may have some decent leadership qualities, but that doesn’t necessarily make me a great presidential candidate. That’s where I am today," he said.
Now, further expanding on these comments, The Rock took to his Instagram account to say that above all else, he believes the core values matter and that those choosing to be a representative of the people should always take pride in who they are and of course, “don't be full of shit.”
Conversations always swirl when it comes to me running for POTUS one day.
The latest poll showed that 46% of Americans would support me running for President.
For my @vanityfair interview, I spent a lot of time with my writer (and tequila drinking buddy:), Chris Heath about my honest feelings regarding this unbelievable support I potentially could have.
But here’s the truth/
46% of Americans galvanized in support me being President is so humbling and it really sits me down and I shake my head in awe.
But at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics. I care deeply about our country.
And I care about every fucking American who bleeds red — and that’s all of them.
There’s no delusion here.
I may have some leadership qualities but that doesn’t necessarily make me a great Presidential candidate.
And that’s where I am today.
I’m not a politician so I don’t care what side of the street you live on or what side of the aisle you sit on.
Core values matter.
Work hard, take care of your family, be kind to people, take pride in your name, take pride in your own two hands, be inclusive and respect EVERYONE and don’t be full of shit.
I’m not a politician, but that’s the truth.
Thanks @vanityfair and thanks Chris for chopping this polarizing, yet important subject up with me and our country
Before The Rock could ever think about running for President, many wrestling fans are still waiting for him to have that big generational familial match against his cousin, Roman Reigns.
During the pandemic, The Rock said it would need to take place in the right setting. Roman followed that by saying WrestleMania in Hollywood, the 2023 destination, seems like a good place to have the match. Learn more here.
