On Sept. 27, actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson publicly endorsed presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris. This is the first time Johnson has ever expressed public support for any presidential candidate.

The news of his endorsement comes a little over a month after Joe Biden officially became the Democratic nominee.

Johnson made this announcement with an almost eight-minute video posted to Twitter. He said this is a big deal for him. Johnson also had the opportunity to interview Biden and Harris prior to announcing his endorsement.

The biggest question he asked was how they would earn the respect of the American people. Both Biden and Harris responded that they would be open and truthful. Biden said, “They [Americans] can take anything if you level with them and tell the truth.” He also said, “Our administration is going to be representative of all of America.” Then Harris said, “You cannot have trust if you don’t speak truth.”

In the video, Johnson also said that he has been, “a registered independent with centrist ideologies” for a while now. To him, the 2020 Presidential election is “arguably the most critical election our country has seen in decades.” He firmly believes that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the best fit to lead the U.S. based on their successful endeavors in the past and how dedicated they are currently.

In the Tweet’s caption, he urges everyone to vote and included a link to the Vote Save America website, which is designed to help people easily register to vote and stay informed about all presidential and vice-presidential candidates, donate to political causes, and see everyone on your local ballot.
