Dwayne Johnson is not the leader, but you can be
Johnson used his platform as a celebrity to send a message. However, it is not attributed to the leadership.
Like most americans, I am not a politician and I have never been chosen clearly for the position and I am not the President of the united States. But I am a man and I am a father that cares so much for my family, for my children and the world in which they will live. I worry so much for our country and for every person in it. That is what I am. I am a man frustrated. I’m disappointed. I’m angry but I’m also doing everything possible to keep me focused and as calm as possible in the pocket to make the best decisions for my family and make the best decisions for our country.

If you are not satisfied with the current leadership, do it better
Johnson made some references to the president, without naming him. In the same way, suggests that if there is a lack of leadership in their community, can intervene.
“So while we continue waiting for such a leader to emerge, I would recommend to all of you that we must become the leaders we are looking for,” Johnson said. “We become our own leaders, because what we are doing now. We must become the leaders we are looking for ”.
