Back in 2020, Dwayne Johnson was seriously considerin throwing his hat in the title for the President of the USA, and taking part in the elections. A recent announcement by the wrestler-turned-actor however, stands in complete contrast to what he said earlier.
The Jumanji actor is reported to have chosen “parenting over presidency” as he announced that he will not be running for the role of president of the USA anymore.
Dwayne Johnson Trolled For Quitting Presidency Race
The actor tuned in on CBS Sunday Morning where he declared the unhappy news that he will not be running for president in the year 2024. Dwyane Johnson revealed that he has too much on his plate right now and running for the presidency among other things just won’t work.
The Black Adam star put a heavy focus on the upbringing of his daughters and told that one of the primary reasons was his daughters.
“I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy. Right now is a ‘crucial time’ in Jasmine and Tiana’s lives”
The actor continued,
“I know what it was like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for a lot of years for my first daughter’s growing up. My number one priority is my daughters. Sure, CEO sounds great, but the number one thing I want to be is daddy.”
Although the wholesome announcement made by Dwayne Johnson was for the betterment of his children, the fans won’t leave him alone. People took to Twitter to troll the actor for his quitting behavior in the race for the position of president.
He can’t fit in the oval office anyway

Of course he won't. He likes drinking adrenochrome.

If he wants to ruin his popularity, he would run for presidency
