Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has indicated that he could be running for president of the United States in the future. While fans are asking for the repetition of the Ronald Regan success, The Rock responded to the idea.
“Cool piece on my I should run for President. Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck…,” he wrote on Twitter.
The Rock has an entirely varied history of fame. The then WWE superstar and the now Hollywood action hero was called by fans to throw his name in the hat for a presidential election.

Earlier, Kanye West was given the same idea of running for the President of the United States (POTUS). However, according to Hollywood Life, West’s dreams of becoming the POTUS is fading fast from his agenda of accomplishments.
“With 2020 so far away Kanye feels that he will be too overqualified for the position of president,” said an insider. According to the insider, it started as a joke then it became serious.
West later gave up the idea as he didn’t want to spend his own money on a presidential run. He said that it would be better to invest in entrepreneurial work and fashion.
Although The Rock’s first few films like The Mummy Return, Scorpion King, Get Smart didn’t do well, his film career started shining with Fast & Furious. In the movie he plays a special ops officer, says The Inquisitor.
Coincidentally, he wouldn’t first ex-wrestler, who has ran for office in the US. Jesse Ventura shared the same profession. He served as Governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003.
While some fans are expecting that The Rock will give Donald Trump the people’s competition, he might even project himself as “The People’s Candidate.”
