All the coins and sexiness aside, The Rock is actually considering running for president.

 Is Donald Trump’s win, and Kanye West’s quest to run in 2020 making it the new normal for celebs to seriously consider running for president?

“I used to say it jokingly but every time I was asked, it was with a real genuine interest. And it was very earnest,” Dwayne said to PEOPLE.

“And so I started to really think. Could I make a difference? Could I surround myself with really brilliant people to help me make decisions? Do I care about this country? And when the answers continued to come up yes, then I thought, there’s a good chance. Yeah, one day. Then we’ll do another interview like this.” He continued.

WWE star, The Rock says he will be president of US in 2020.

World Wrestling Entertainment, WWE, superstar, and Hollywood actor, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, has indicated interest to run for the position of American president in 2020.

The Rock said he “wouldn’t rule out” a potential bid to be the next U.S. president after Trump.

44-year-old wrestler cum actor cited the just concluded Presidential election, where Republican billionaire businessman, Donald Trump was elected U.S 45th president, as proof that he could also emerge the world’s number one citizen one day.

He told Vanity Fair Magazine, “I wouldn’t rule it out.

“It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

The wrestler said he might be queuing for the position by 2020 having told Britain’s GQ magazine back in June that he had been thinking about a career change into the political field.

According to him, “I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring.

“And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale.

“Maybe, one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck.”

‘Fast & Furious’ Feud: Rock vs. Vin Diesel Have Secret Meeting to Quash Beef

The Rock’s rant about unprofessional male co-stars was targeted at Vin Diesel, it’s been revealed, and the 2 had a secret meeting on the “Fast 8” set Tuesday to hash things out.
Production sources say … when the Rock went nuts on social media Monday night, claiming certain male co-stars were not stand up guys and too “chicken s***” to confront him … he was referring to Vin.
We’re told The Rock has butted heads with Vin during the production, in part because V.D. is a producer and has made decisions that didn’t sit well with the former wrestling champ.
Sources claim The Rock and Vin had a meeting on the Atlanta set mid-day Tuesday … partly because tensions were running so high it was almost impossible to shoot scenes. It’s to be confirmed if they resolved their issues.
As reported, almost the entire cast is angry at Rock for causing a stir just a week and a half before filming ends.
