Dwayne Johnson says a bid for US President is currently “off the table”
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has said him running for President Of The United States Of America is currently “off the table”.
Johnson has been speaking about becoming President since 2016. First he said he “wouldn’t rule it out” before saying he was seriously considering running for office in 2020. He then dismissed the speculation entirely.
“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 honour to serve you, the people,” he wrote at the time.
“I do have that goal to unite our country,” he said, “and I also feel that if this is what the people want, then I will do that.”
However, in a new interview Johnson has said him becoming President is currently “off the table”.
Speaking to CBS Sunday Morning, Johnson said: “I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy. And that’s the most important thing to me is being a daddy, number one, especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters’ lives.”

He continued: “I know what it was like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for a lot of years in my first daughter’s… Growing up in this critical age at this critical time in their life, and that’s what the presidency will do. So my number one priority is my daughters.”
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Jungle Cruise), Black Adam follows the DC anti-hero whom after being imprisoned for 5,000 years, breaks free from his tomb and encounters the Justice Society Of America in the modern world.
