Dwayne Johnson is keeping his political opinions to himself.

In an interview with Fox & Friends that aired earlier this week, the actor, 51, said that he has no plans to publicly endorse anyone in the upcoming 2024 presidential election after previously endorsing President Joe Biden in 2020.

“Am I going to do that again, this year? That answer’s no. I’m not going to do that,” Johnson said. “Because what I realized, 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.”

“The takeaway after that, after months and months and months, I started to realize, like, ‘Oh man, that caused an incredible amount of division in our country.’ So I realize now going into this election, I’m not going to do that,” he continued. “I wouldn’t do that, because my goal is to bring our country together. I believe in that, in my DNA. So in the spirit of that, there’s going to be no endorsement.”

Added Johnson: “Not that I’m afraid of it at all, but it’s just I realize that [with] this level of influence, I keep my politics to myself, and I think it’s between me and the ballot box.”

Biden, 81, and former President Donald Trump, 77, are their parties’ presumptive nominees in the 2024 presidential race.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West and Jill Stein, meanwhile, are running on third party tickets.

Some notable names who previously put their hat into the ring but have since dropped out from their bids for president include former Vice President Mike Pence, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy and Chris Christie, who all ran as Republicans, as well as Dean Phillips, who campaigned as a Democrat.

Marianne Williamson and Jason Palmer remain in the Democratic primary race, despite Biden securing the delegates needed to win.

Whoever wins the upcoming November election, Johnson told Fox & Friends that he will “100%” support the person chosen to be president.

“I do trust the American people,” the Jumanji star said. “And I trust that whoever they vote for. That’s going to be my president, and that’s who I’m gonna support 100%.”

As for his own political journey, which has been teased over the years, Johnson explained that he has no plans to pursue running for president anytime soon.

“As of now? No, that’s not my intention. I’m not a politician, I’m not into politics. I care deeply about our country. I’m a patriot … and right now, my desire and my priorities are my babies and school drop-offs and pickups and things like that. That’s important to me,” he said.

“In the spirit of bringing people together and bringing our country together, I don’t know if that’s the right move at this point,” Johnson added. “Possibly. I don’t know, as of now.”
