After Backing Biden and Harris, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to ‘Consider’ Presidential Run: I Have an ‘Ambition to Unite Our Country’

Hollywood actor, former WWE superstar, and Joe Biden backer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said he will “consider” running for president because he has a fundamental “ambition to unite our country.”
The Young Rock and Fast and Furious star said he will “consider” taking a plunge into politics if the American people want him to run for president. “I have a goal, and an interest and an ambition to unite our country,” Johnson told Sunday Today’s Willie Geist. “If this is what the people want, then I will do that.”
“If the time comes where there is a good amount of people who want to see that happen, then I’m going to consider it,” the Jumanji star added.
Weeks ago, Johnson star shared a screenshot of a Newsweek headline detailing a poll showing less than half of America — 46 percent — supporting the prospect of the Skyscraper star running for president.
“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 – but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people,” he said in the April 10 post.
