Donald Trump’s transition from a businessman and entertainment personality to President of the US has certainly bewildered people.
His unlikely presidential run has inspired lots of celebrities without political experience to consider a crack at the 2020 election—including one of Hollywood’s most sought after actor at the moment, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
After multiple reports claimed that the former WWE star is thinking of following Trump’s footsteps, Johnson finally addressed the matter himself during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
While speaking to Ellen alongside his “Jumanji” co-actor and good friend Kevin Hart, Johnson’s long rumored aspirations for the presidency came up.
“I know where his heart is, I really know him, so I know if he puts himself in that position it’s for the better of the people,” Hart said. “I can only applaud him and support him for doing that.”
“Will you run?” DeGeneres asked. “Seriously, would you run?”
“I’m seriously considering it,” Johnson answered, much to the delight of the studio audience.
Meanwhile, Johnson first hinted at possibly succeeding President Trump to GQ earlier this year, saying it was a “real possibility.”
