Will Smith Is Considering Running For President In The Future
Couple of celebrities have joined politics and more are still looking forward to running for a seat later in the Future. Kanye West ran for the Presidential election last year but, he failed woefully.
Recently, Dwayne Johnson said that he has plans to leap into politics in about a decade. It appears Will Smith is also willing to join him in the race.
During a recent visit to Crooked Media’s “Pod Save America,” Will Smith touched on the possibilities of running for office. It doesn’t seem like it’s something he’ll be diving into immediately, saying, “I think for now I’ll let that office get cleaned up a little bit.”
However, he didn’t rule out running for office down the line. “I absolutely have an opinion, I’m optimistic, I’m hopeful, I believe in understanding between people and I believe in the possibility of harmony. I will certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or, at some point, ventures into the political arena,” he said.
Will Smith’s previously flirted with the idea of running for president over the course of his career but it seems like he’s gotten more serious about his political aspirations in recent years. The actor spoke about running for president in 2015 during Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
“If people keep saying all the crazy kinds of stuff they’ve been saying on the news lately about walls and Muslims, they’re going to force me into the political arena,” he told CBS Sunday Morning.
