Several months ago, The Rock insinuated that he may be interested in running for President of the United States in 2020. It has remained a consistent topic of conversation for him since then in interviews. In a recent sitdown with Vanity Fair, he once again addressed the possibility.
“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 Rock certainly sounds like he’s leaving the door open to that scenario actually coming to fruition. What happened this past election may only fuel that fire for politics for him to serious consider that career change. It has given the feeling that there may be others that could try that route the next time around.
If The Rock were to indeed take that route, he already has a strong group of supporters in his fan base. It would be interesting to see what his stance would be on the various issues. There is still a lot of time before this could be taken with any real grain of salt.
