Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a top Hollywood actor and former wrestling superstar, announced Friday that he regrets endorsing President Joe Biden ahead during the 2020 election cycle and that he is not going to endorse Biden in the 2024 election.

During a Friday interview on “Fox & Friends” with Fox News host Will Cain, Johnson was asked whether he was “happy” with his endorsement of Biden in 2020 and whether he was “happy” with the current state of the United States.

“Am I happy with the state of America right now? Well, that answer is no,” Johnson said. “Do I believe we’re gonna get better? I believe in that. I’m an optimistic guy, and I believe we can get better.”

Johnson told Cain that his endorsement of Biden during the 2020 election was the “one I thought was the best decision for me at that time.” He explained that as a person with “some influence,” he felt like it was his “job” to use his influence to make an endorsement for president at that time.

“Am I gonna do that again this year? That answer is no,” Johnson told Cain. “Because what I realized that what that caused back then was something that tears me up in my guts back then and now, which is division. And that got me.”

Johnson said that “months” after he announced his endorsement of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, he began to realize, “Oh man, that caused an incredible amount of division in our country.” As a result, the famous actor said he is not going to make a similar endorsement in the 2024 election. He added that his goal is to help “bring the country together” instead of creating division.

“So in the spirit of that, there’s going to be no endorsement,” Johnson added. “Not that I’m afraid of it at all, but it’s just I realize that this level of influence —I’m gonna keep my politics to myself, and I think it’s between me and the ballot box.”

While the former WWE superstar made it clear that he will not be endorsing a candidate as he did in 2020, Johnson told Cain that he would support whichever candidate the American people elect as president.

According to Fox News, Johnson’s first public endorsement of a political candidate came in 2020, when he released a video expressing his support for Biden.

In his endorsement video, Johnson stated, “As a registered independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Senator Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president of our United States.”
