After President Donald Trump was elected, the game has changed, for which political experience used to be seen as an unofficial prerequisite for holding the highest office in the country
Donald Trump’s unprecedented win in the 2016 presidential election has opened the floodgates of speculation about other notable people with no political experience who may consider a run for the Oval Office in 2020.
Donald Trump has gone from reality television to the White House. Many celebrities have been angry about the news, but there are some that are inspired to run for president in 2020.
Here are few celebrities who might run for president in the next election:
The charismatic action star ,one of the best-paid actors in Hollywood and former WWE wrestler could make out a presidential run in 2020?
He was asked if he would ever run for office, and his response makes us think he’s not exactly ruling it out. “Right now the best way that I can impact the world is through entertainment,” he told Movie Fone. “One day, and that day will come, I can impact the world through politics. The great news is that I am American, therefore I can become President. But don’t forget: I am G.I. Joe.”
Most recently, he told Vanity Fair, “I wouldn’t rule it out,” when asked if he would make a bid for the highest office.
Comedian Chris Rock took to Twitter after Trump’s win last week to announce, “I’m gonna run in 2020 wish me luck.” The post included a Photoshopped version of the movie poster for his 2003 film “Head of State,” in which Rock played the first African-American president. Trump has definitely made it seem possible for any famous political outsider to make it into the White House.
While speaking at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards last August, West concluded his 13-minute monologue by saying, “And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
In a recent interview, he said,
“When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views,” West said. “I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time to somehow make a difference while I’m still alive, I’m all for it.”
The rapper has been pretty outspoken throughout his career, comparing himself to God and saying that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” on live television.
The Hellboy actor is also thinking about making a career move. He posted a photo to Facebook announcing his candidacy in the caption. He also wrote in the comments, “My slogan will be, ‘Make America Great Again, Again’ so … hold onto your hats!”
Perlman has since posted a series of fake campaign posters, including one that read, “Vote for Perl or Go to Hell,”which he amended by saying, “Should read ‘And.’ ‘And’ go to Hell!”
Katy Perry posted an Instagram photo with former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The post included the caption, “42, 43 46?!” suggesting that she would run for president in 2020 or 2024.
The singer was very vocal throughout the 2016 election, and was a huge advocate for Hillary Clinton.
Actor Will Smith told that he may run for president in response to then-candidate Trump’s divisive rhetoric.
“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 said. “I mean, I gotta be the president… What else would I run for?”
But when someone followed up with the actor on his comments, he said, “I was really kind of joking when I said that.”
Many people have asked Oprah Winfrey if she will run for office, making it seem like she would have plenty of voters. But what does she think about it? “I never considered the question even a possibility,” she told David Rubenstein.
However, Donald Trump’s win changed that. “I thought, ‘Oh, gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough.’ And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh.’”
The roll of presidency rolled out to Facebook founder and CEO, who have been asked about their political ambitions as well. When he was asked if he was planning to run, he answered, “I’m focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative,” according to USA Today.
Well, there have been reports that he has talked to Trump multiple times since he was elected.
Iger, the CEO of Disney, said that many people including a number of his Hollywood pals have encouraged him to take a closer look at entering politics, and even towards a 2020 run. “A lot of people — a lot — have urged me to seek political office,” he told.
Sources say, Iger has also consulted with former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg about the transition from corner office to public office.
