Dwayne Johnson just confirmed his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election during his skit in the May 20 episode of “#Saturday Night Live.”

'SNL' Dwayne Johnson Monologue

In his monolog, the WWE wrestler stated a lot of people have been asking him to run for the highest post. Hence, Johnson has finally heeded their call and announced he is up to take the challenge to be the next POTUS.

“Starting tonight, I am running for the President of the United States,” he said. “And I’ve gotta tell you, I’ve already chosen my running mate.”

The Rock was referring to none other than, Tom Hanks, who is also a five-timer on “SNL.” Johnson even commended his vice president for being “well-liked” and “universally adored” celebrity.

Dwayne Johnson for President!

In his previous interview with GQ Daily, Johnson did not rule out the option of running for the White House position. What started as a joke has now become a “real possibility” for the professional wrestler to enter the world of politics.

It was last year when Alyssa Rosenberg listed the qualities that make Johnson suitable in leading the Americans. After seeing the post, Johnson admitted he had to think about the idea before he can actually give his answer.

“There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think,” he shared.

Similarly, Johnson had the chance to play as the US president during his appearances on “SNL” back in 2013 and 2015 wherein he parodied then-president Barrack Obama in the Oval Office.

If ever he becomes the POTUS, the WWE wrestler and actor promised to take responsibility of the Americans and to listen to their pleas. Johnson said he will open his eyes to understand their calls and disagreements.

The "Baywatch" actor has been open to the idea of running for president after winning the support of his fans. In fact, Johnson has already established a strong fan base which makes him viable for the highest power.

Qualifications for becoming President

Johnson certainly meets the requirements to be the next leader of the United States. The 45-year-old wrestler and actor was born in California and was raised in New Zealand. He currently holds both American and Canadian citizenships.

Aside from fighting inside the ring, he has also participated in several conventions, including at the 2000 Republican national convention and the Democratic convention.

Not to mention, Johnson was requested by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for an endorsement during the recent presidential campaign.
