Actor Dwayne Johnson, also known as “The Rock,” recently went on the record saying that there was “a real possibility” he would run for president. On Thursday’s “The Tonight Show,” Johnson discussed his political ambitions with Jimmy Fallon.
Citing a recent poll, Johnson claimed, “I would beat Donald Trump if we had an election today to become president.”
Flattered by the poll results, the entertainer stated that he’s “become a guy that a lot of people kind of relate to: get up early in the morning at a ridiculous hour, go to work and spend time with the troops, take care of my family.” He added, “I love taking care of people. And I think that kind of thing really resonates with people, especially today.”
