Fans of the WWE are well aware that ‘The Rock’ as a character doesn’t often express regret. Dwayne Johnson, the man behind that character, however, says he has a few regarding the 2020 presidential election.

Specifically, his endorsement of President Joe Biden.

In an interview with Fox News’s Will Cain released earlier today, Johnson lamented the decision to endorse Biden as well as the effect it had on the country afterward.

“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 thought back then… I’m in this position where I have some influence,” Johnson continued. “I felt like that then, it’s my job now to exercise my influence and share this is who I’m going to endorse.”

Now though, he isn’t planning on ‘cooking’ up any endorsements for 2024.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Endorsement

In the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson gave Joe Biden’s campaign a significant boost with a very public endorsement.

“As a registered Independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president of our United States,” he said.

“You guys are both experienced to lead. You’ve done great things. Joe, you’ve had such an incredible career, and you’ve led with such great compassion, heart, drive and soul,” Johnson added. “Kamala, you have been a district attorney, a state attorney, a U.S. senator. You are smart and tough.”

Now, he’s either having regrets or simply wants to stay out of politics so it’s not a detriment to his career.

Regrets, He’s Had A Few

Cain questioned Johnson on whether or not he’d be weighing into the presidential race again this cycle.

“Am I going to do that again this year? That answer’s no,” he flat-out declared. “I also realized that what that caused back then, was something that tears me up in my gut back then and now, which is division.”

“The takeaway after that — months, and months and months [later] — I started to realize like, oh man, that caused an incredible amount of division in our country.”

‘The Rock’, who is often cited as a potential candidate himself, also said during the interview that while he may not be handing out an endorsement this year, he will support whoever eventually wins.

“I will tell you this: While like a lot of us out there are not trusting of all politicians, I do trust the American people,” he states. “And I trust that whoever they vote for, that’s going to be my president. And that’s who I’m going to support 100 percent.”
