We might see Dwayne Johnson in the presidential race in 2023, and his former wrestling friend Mick Foley supports him completely. He said that The Rock would be amazing president of the United States. In his interview with the GQ magazine, Dwayne Johnson declared that he was considering to run for the president in the following race.
The 51-year-old Foley said: “I think he’d make a great candidate. He’d have my vote, for sure. He’s a young enough man that he could do one term or two terms and still get leading man roles in Hollywood.” Foley than continued talking about why it is a positive thing to have a star who is loved like Johnson in a presidential race.
“I think The Rock has the potential to unite this country in a very real way. I think he should run as an independent and make it clear that he wants to work with everyone. He is a guy who cuts across party lines. I think people are colorblind when it comes to The Rock. They don’t see color, they just see this amazing individual, and I think he can bring people together,” explained Mick Foley.
He also went on to say that the incumbent President Donald Trump wouldn’t stand a chance against Dwayne Johnson in the campaign. Foley continued: “The other candidates (for the 2016 Republican nomination) were really out of their league when it comes to Trump. But The Rock is in a league all of his own. I think his grasp on the issues is far better than our current president’s, I think he takes great pride in being as prepared as possible. I think they’d be great debates, I think they’d be amazing campaign appearances. I think the idea that someone else was outdrawing the president at campaign stops would rankle him (Trump) to no end. I think it’d really hurt his ego.”
Foley is confident that Johnson can win and he concluded: “The world is his oyster, it really is. It’s up to him when and if he decides to shuck it, so to speak. So yeah, if he wants to be president, we will see a President Johnson.” Do you think Dwayne Johnson would be a good leader?
