Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said the idea of having a political career is “very real” to him.
During an interview Wednesday on Good Morning America, host Michael Strahan asked Johnson about a tweet he wrote that said he would “maybe” run for president one day.
“The idea of me being president one day has become a legit thing to some people,” Johnson said.
Cool piece on why I should run for President. Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck..https://t.co/JpkZ4w1eh3

Johnson added that as “time goes on” he’ll take the “temperature of the American people.”
“If it is a very real, overwhelming, positive, strong, ‘We want you to run for president,’ and if I felt that I can step up to the plate and become a tremendous leader for our country and make a real difference and make change, I would do it,” he said.

Strahan seemed to like the idea.
“I’ll tell you right now, that sounded so presidential,” Strahan said. “I’m like, ‘put the ballot out there!’”
