Speaking about the same, The Rock confessed that he doesn’t know a thing when it comes to politics. However, he is surprised and humbled by how much the adults of the US trust him.

“You know, at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics. I don’t know the first thing about policy. I care deeply about our country. Care about every fu**ing American who bleeds red, and that’s all of them. And—there’s no delusion here—I may have some decent leadership qualities, but that doesn’t necessarily make me a great presidential candidate. That’s where I am today,” The Rock said.

This is The Rock’s modesty that he so generously chose not to run the country and thinks there are more sound and qualified people who can do this job running a country much better.
