Dwayne Johnson finally gave a straight answer about his possible presidential future. And it doesn’t sound like we’ll ever get the chance to smell what The Rock could cook up in the Oval Office.

A few months ago, rumors started swirling around Dwayne Johnson and a possible POTUS run. And his fans quite liked the idea of another president Johnson. But today, The Rock put those rumors to rest. On Instagram, he announced that he is not running any time soon.

In a recent poll, 46% of Americans said they’d support Johnson’s presidential bid. And the actor admitted that he’s spent a lot of time talking about the possibility of running for office with his friend Chris Heath, but he doesn’t think he’s fit to be president.

“46% of Americans galvanized in support me being President is so humbling and it really sits me down and I shake my head in awe,” he wrote. “But at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics.”

The Fast and Furious actor told his fans that he “may have some leadership qualities,” and he cares “deeply about our country” and every American “who bleeds red.” But those things don’t make him “a great Presidential candidate.”

Dwayne Johnson Says ‘Core Values Matter’

Dwayne Johnson may not be our future president, but he wants people to know that they can all make a difference in our society and world. And he has advice for everyone.

“I’m not a politician,” he continued. “So I don’t care what side of the street you live on or what side of the aisle you sit on.”

What matters most about a person is their “core values.” And Johnson thinks those values are simple, so people need to listen up.

“Work hard, take care of your family, be kind to people,” he urged. “Take pride in your name, take pride in your own two hands, be inclusive and respect EVERYONE and don’t be full of sh**.”

“I’m not a politician, but that’s the truth.”

The Rock Says He Spends Time on His Farm to Escape Fame

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is probably one of the most loved celebrities in the United States. He’s so popular that there is a giant push for him to run for presidency and he has 275 million adoring followers on Instagram.

Johnson appreciates his fans and does everything he can to repay their kindness and admiration. But sometimes, he has to escape his fame. And he does that by heading to a secluded farm.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Johnson admitted that it’s hard for him to put on a hat and blend in when he goes out.

“I’m just, I’m the size of a dinosaur,” he said. So, when he’s home in LA, he never gets a break. “But again, not a problem,” he assured VF. “Not a problem. I’m not complaining.”

“But, every once in a while, it’s nice when I can isolate myself either on my farm or certain places in the islands where I don’t see anyone and don’t interact with anybody except my family.” he admitted, “… Those are nice times where, you know, you’re not reminded as often.”
