‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson teased another run for the White House in an interview with The Today Show.
“I do have that goal to unite our country,” the former WWE wrestler explained on the Sunday Sitdown. “I also feel that, if this is what the people want, then I will do that.”
Johnson said, “I am passionate about making sure that our country is united because a united country, as we know, is the strongest, and I want to see that for our country.”
This is not the first time that ‘Race to Witch Mountain’ star has suggested he has presidential ambitions.
In February, he told USA Today, “I would consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted.” Johnson added. “Truly I mean that, and I’m not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people…So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground.”
He elaborated on Twitter after a poll showing forty-six percent of responders would want him to run for the White House.
“Not sure 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 the people,” he wrote.

The Rock’s comments about entering the political field have gone back as far as 2017. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Johnson told the talk show host that, “I’m seriously considering it, yes” when she asked him directly.
Johnson is set to star in the adventure flick ‘Jungle Cruise’ as Captain Frank Wolff, the action-comedy ‘Red Notice,’ and will headline the DCEU’s ‘Black Adam.’
