Dwayne Johnson opens up to Jimmy Fallon about potential 2020 presidential run

"I think it's because, you know, a lot of people want to see a different leadership today-or even, I'm sorry, not different, but better leadership today", Johnson said.

So the question is. when he's president, would it be "President The Rock" or The "President Rock"? Johnson is now on the promo circuit for his R-rated Baywatch movie, which opens next week, but was hit with some presidential rumor inquiries due to all the headlines spawned by his recent GQ cover story. So, I said Allow me to seriously think about this and then I will offer you guys a real and respectful answer. I love taking care of people.

"Three-and-a-half years is a long ways away, so we'll see", he said.

In 2000, Johnson spoke at both the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention on the importance of voting.

"The story has blown up because it was so wonderfully written", Johnson said of the GQ piece to host Jimmy Fallon.

'The first thing we'd do is we'd come and sit down and we'd talk about it.

Donald Trump had mused about running for office since at least the late 1980s before eventually pulling the trigger on his campaign in 2016 - and winning.

Just a little over a week after an interview with GQ Magazine where Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson suggested he'd consider running for president in 2020, it's looking like he's more serious than we thought.

What the full clip of Dwayne Johnson's Tonight Show interview below. His interests are conservative political philosophy, the American founding, and progressive rock.
