The Rock Refuses To Endorse Joe Biden For US President

The Rock

Many people think The Rock should be running for United States President one day, but the star himself won’t be putting his weight behind either candidate in 2024.

In 2020, in a fiercely contested election, The Rock endorsed Joe Biden for US President ahead of his opponent, WWE Hall of Famer and at the time, the incumbent President, Donald Trump.

As politics borrows from the wrestling world, a rematch is in the works between Biden and Trump for the general election in November 2024 but neither man will have the public support of The Rock this time around.

Speaking to FOX News, The Rock explained why he had decided to stop short of endorsing either candidate for President despite feeling Biden was the best decision for him back in 2020:

The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was one I thought was the best decision for me at that time. I thought, ‘I’m in this position where I have some influence and I felt it was my job then to exercise my influence [and] share: This is who I’m going to endorse.’

I’m not going to do that. I was then, the most followed man in the world, and am today, and I appreciate that … but what that caused was something that tears me up in my guts — which is division. That got me. I didn’t realize that then, I just felt like there was a lot of unrest and I’d like things to calm down.

The takeaway after that was it caused an incredible amount of division. I realize now going into this election, I will not do that. My goal is to bring this country together. I believe in that. There will be no endorsement. At this level of influence, I will keep my politics to myself. It is between me and the ballot box. But I will tell you this: Like a lot of us out there, not trusting of all politicians, I do trust the American people and whoever they vote for that is my president and who I will support 100 percent.

The Rock Fed Up With Woke Culture

When asked if he was happy with the state of the United States, The Rock simply said “no” before going on to explain his distaste for many of the things dividing society:

Today’s cancel culture, woke culture, division, etcetera — that really bugs me. In the spirit of that, you either succumb to that and be what other people want you to be, or you be yourself and be real … and that might make people upset and p*ss people off, and that’s OK.

The Rock will return to the ring at WrestleMania 40 when he teams with Roman Reigns against Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins as he looks to cancel Cody Rhodes’ hopes of finishing his story and keep him divided from the WWE Universal Championship.
