One of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson who rose to stardom as a WWE wrestler appeared on the first political campaign group relating to the 2020 presidential run, According to the political consultant, Kenton Tilford for Wheeling, West Virginia registered the actor’s campaign motto that goes like “Run the Rock 2020”
During an Interview with CNN, Kenton Tilford shared few words about the notion of himself having interest in Dwayne Johnson as a committee in that he’s been having several discussions with him which reveals him having a tendency of mending the now divided America, he says: “I’ve been discussing (this committee) with friends for some time, but I ultimately decided to create the committee because America is incredibly divided,”
“With this level of vitriol and anger, I believe we desperately need a leader who can unite us and not just pander to a small base of supporters,” he said.
Tilford believes Dwayne Johnson might be good for being a leader, so he decided to give him hand in terms of the campaign form, as most of his goals running for presidential post is to “to build a grassroots community of Americans to show to Mr. Johnson that his incredible popularity as an actor and public figure can translate into politics seamlessly,” according to Tilford.
Dwayne Johnson “TheRock” himself took an action of creating Twitter account titled
“Draft the Rock” for the committee. “A grassroots movement to send the people’s champion to the White House in 2020,” the Twitter bio reads. “#MakeAmericaRockAgain.” As stated in the FEC form, the committee supports/opposes only one candidate and is NOT an Authorized Committee.
TheRock running for Presidency has been in rumors since around last year November, he said to Vanity Fair Magazine “I wouldn’t rule out the idea of taking up the keys to the White House. it would be a great opportunity to help people,” ” This past election shows that anything can happen.” He told the magazine. He has started featuring with different appearances on various reality TV shows as he fired up the speculations.
He shared an image of himself on Twitter standing behind a podium labeled “‘The Rock’ Johnson 2020” to promote the episode and “announced” on the show that he and Tom Hanks were teaming up for a bid.
“It’s just that when it comes to politics, we need more poise and less noise,” Johnson said. “Americans deserve strong, capable leaders. Leaders who care about this country and care about its people.”
“Dwayne, that kind of sounds like you and me,” Hanks responded. “I guess we got to do it!”
He also already has a campaign slogan, which, it seems, is a verbal smackdown directed at Trump: “More poise, less noise.”
And now pranks apart, this fresh and recent registered campaign committee kinda looks like the first initial process concerning 2020 presidential campaign, which Dwayne Johnson himself has referred to as “A Real Possibility.”
