DWAYNE “The Rock” Johnson said it’d “be an honor” to serve as president after slamming Donald Trump during the 2020 campaign.
Johnson shared a snapshot of a poll to his Instagram that said 46% of Americans would support “The Rock” if he ran for president.

Johnson, 48, called the poll results “humbling.”
“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,” Johnson wrote.
“But if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people.”
The Rock began getting more involved in politics last year, endorsing now President and Vice President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in September 2020.

It was the first time the WWE star-turned actor ever endorsed a presidential candidate.
He shared a seven minute and 30 second clip to his 14.8million followers in which he talks to both Biden and Harris.
He told the pair: “You guys are both obviously experienced to lead. You’ve done great things.
“Joe, you’ve had such an incredible career. You’ve led in my opinion, with great compassion, and heart, and drive, but also soul.

“You and I talked about that in the past and how important soul is.”
During a video posted to IGTV in June, Johnson called Trump out — and asked where he’d been during the national movement.
During that video, fans begged the wrestling legend to run for president, a proposal he has apparently considered in the past — and as his latest Instagram post suggests, will continue to consider in the future.
He told Vanity Fair in 2018 that running for president is something that he “seriously considered,” but he needed time to learn about the position.
“I have so much respect for the position. It’s something that I seriously considered,” he said. “What I need is time to go out and learn.”
