‘The Rock’ Withdraws Biden Endorsement

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said this week that he regretted his 2020 support for President Joe Biden and spent part of an interview criticizing “woke” culture. The wrestling and movie star’s statement comes amid polls showing declining support for the president.

The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was one I thought was the best decision for me at that time,’ he said. “I realize now going into this election, I will not do that.”

Johnson said that his goal is to “bring this country together.”

I will keep my politics to myself. It is between me and the ballot box. 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,” he said.

The celebrity asked a rhetorical question of whether or not he was “happy with the state of America right now?” He answered that with a “no.”

“Do I believe we are going to get better? I believe in that, I’m an optimistic guy and I believe we can get better,” he said.

Johnson spoke with Biden and future Vice President Kamala Harris in 2020 and endorsed them.

The wrestler endorsed Biden in 2020 and said that he cried “manly tears” after the president defeated former President Donald Trump.

“This win feels so good, but now the real work begins,” Johnson said at the time. “Because we have an entire country divided. I’m not turning my back on you just because we have a difference of opinion.”

Johnson made the statement in a Fox News interview this weekend, saying that he would not be making an endorsement in the 2024 election.

The Rock was the subject of a public movement to try and draft him to run for president. The celebrity turned down the idea. However, he has made public statement alluding to possibly running for public office in the future.

Johnson also spoke at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions in 2000 calling for people to vote.
