No Presidential Endorsement This Year — Dwayne Johnson Gives Reasons!

Actor and former wrestler Dwayne Johnson has expressed his decision to be nonpartisan in political issues, denoting a shift from his past support of Biden during the last Presidential campaign.

According to him, he is no longer going to endorse any Presidential candidate in America this year.

The actor affirmed this during a recent interview with Fox News on Friday April 5. The ‘Rock’ had freely supported Joe Biden for president during the 2020 elections. Yet, his assumptions for President Biden were not met, thus he regrets endorsing him.

“The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was one I thought was the best decision for me at that time,” Johnson told Fox News’ Will Cain.

“I thought, ‘I’m in this position where I have some influence [and] share: This is who I’m going to endorse.’ I’m not going to do that; I was then the most followed man in the world and am today, and I appreciate that…but what that caused was something that tears me up in my guts, which is division. That got me. I didn’t realize that then; I just felt like there was a lot of unrest and I’d like things to calm down.”

During the 2020 elections in America, Dwayne Johnson openly endorsed Joe Biden against Trump, recognizing his “empathy, heart, drive and soul.”

During the interview, Johnson proceeded:

“The takeaway after that was it caused an incredible amount of division. I realize now going into this election. I will not do that [endorse a candidate]. My goal is to bring this country together. I believe in that. There will be no endorsement. At this level of influence, I will keep my politics to myself. It is between me and the ballot box. But I will tell you this: Like a lot of us out there, not trusting of all politicians, I do trust the American people, and whoever they vote for is my president, and who I will support 100 percent.”

When asked about his thoughts on the state of the American economy now, the entertainer replied immediately with a big NO!.

“Today’s cancel culture, woke culture, division, etc.—that bugs me,” he added. “In the spirit of that, to either succumb to that and be what other people want you to be, or you be yourself and be real…and that might make people upset and piss people off, and that’d be okay.”

Also, the ‘Rock’ revealed that. it’s not his expectation to run for any political position, if any should pop up. I’m not a politician”, he said.

In 2023, on Trevor Noah’s Spotify podcast What Now?, Johnson revealed that several political parties approached him in 2022 to ask if he would be interested in running for presidential elections after a 2021 political poll claimed 46% of U.S adults would support him if he were ever to go down that road. But he declined them.
