Dwayne Johnson endorses Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for the 2020 Presidential Election.
On Sunday, the actor and former University of Miami football player made what he says is his “first ever (public) presidential endorsement” by announcing support for the former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden and Harris will challenge President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on Elecition Day, November 3.
Dwayne Johnson acknowledged his complicated voting record in an Instagram post, while announcing his endorsement.
“As a political independent and centrist for many years, I’ve voted for Democrats in the past and as well as Republican,” the upcoming Red Notice actor announced, adding in an accompanying video he has “friends in all parties.”
The video also shows Dwayne Johnson having a Zoom conversation with the two candidates. The 48-year-old actor praises Biden for leading “in my opinion, with great compassion, and heart, and drive, but also the soul.” He considers the “smart, tough” Harris, meanwhile, to be a “certified badass.”
Johnson asked how they would earn the respect of fellow Americans. Biden promised to take responsibility, tell the truth, and have an administration that is “going to look like America” and be a representation of America.”
“You cannot have trust if you don’t have the truth,” added Harris.
Dwayne Johnson added an Instagram caption saying, “Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, grit, kindness and respect. Being KIND & RESPECTFUL to one another will always matter … Now we must ALL VOTE.”
