It had been previously reported that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had recently said that he would consider running for the office of the President of the United States of America. And I think you have to question why.

"It's so flattering and I think it's because a lot of people want to see a different - I'm sorry not different, but better leadership today", he told Fallon".

Both Johnson and Fallon have had an interesting relationship with the subject of the presidency in the past.

"As we were talking, she goes, 'Would you ever consider running for president?' I said, 'Yeah, of course I would consider it.' The surge and the groundswell since then has really been fantastic", he said, adding that he's "incredibly flattered" by the poll results. That said, it's hard to imagine any competition Trump could actually beat Johnson in.

Johnson said he felt surprised by the amount of support he has received since he revealed to GQ in an interview that he's thinking of running for the White House. "A year ago, it started coming up more and more. Taking responsibility for everybody".

He told the fashion monthly magazine: 'Personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important.

'Last year, they talked about this a lot and I have a feeling things might get serious. Even if we disagree, we've got to figure it out'.
