Dwayne Johnson Teases 2020 Presidential Run: ‘I Wouldn’t Rule It Out’

President-Elect Trump probably shouldn’t get too comfortable in the Oval Office — at least until he finds out what The Rock is cooking.

Although Dwayne Johnson has talked before about the possibility of entering politics, it seemed like something that might happen in the distant future. Now, however, it sounds as if the future could be closer than we think.

Asked Sunday whether he might consider a White House bid in 2020 to help reunite a divided country, the WWE wrestler turned movie superstar told Vanity Fair, “I wouldn’t rule it out. It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

The 44-year-old actor, who’s busy promoting Disney’s “Moana” in between filming “Fast 8” and “Jumanji,” confirmed in June that he’s given serious thought to a political career. “I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring,” he said. “And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first.”

And make no mistake, Johnson has a lot of things to do, including more “Fast and the Furious” films, a couple of “Journey” sequels, “San Andreas 2,” “Rampage,” “Doc Savage” and “Shazam!” — not to mention his television work, both in front of and behind the camera. It’s a list that seems to grow by the week.

However, if anyone can accomplish all of that and launch a political campaign, all within the next four years, it’s probably Dwayne Johnson.
