Donald Trump may have only just become US president but big acting names are already being put forward for the next election.
Documentarian Michael Moore has been extremely vocal in his dislike for Trump and has now revealed that he thinks Tom Hanks or Oprah Winfrey should challenge Trump for the presidency in 2020.
Moore told CNN’s State Of The Union show:
“Democrats would be better off if they ran Oprah [Winfrey] or Tom Hanks. Why don’t we run beloved people? We have so many of them”
“The Republicans do this – they run [Ronald] Reagan and the Terminator [Arnold Schwarzeneger] and other people. Why don’t we run somebody that the American people love and are really drawn to, and that are smart and have good politics and all that?”
Tom Hanks or Oprah Winfrey are yet to show any interest in running for office. However, Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is considering it.
He told Vanity Fair that “he wouldn’t rule it out.” before adding “it would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”
And this isn’t the first time that Johnson has revealed his interest, writing on Instagram earlier this year that “the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring.”:
Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. ?? More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read… I care DEEPLY about our county… and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again Washington Post. ?? ??
Another actor to declare his interest in becoming US president is Hellboy‘s Ron Perlman, making the announcement soon after Trump’s win:
So who would you like to see run for President in 2020?
