Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on what Donald Trump should have done to Steph Curry
It wasn’t long ago when US President Donald Trump revoked his offer for the Golden State Warriors to come visit the White House after learning that Stephen Curry was not in favor of his team going to the official presidential residence.
Trump’s withdrawal of his offer caused quite a stir in the sports world and put Curry suddenly at the forefront of pro athletes expressing their displeasure of how the president is handling himself as the most powerful man in the world.
Months after that brouhaha, actor and wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sat down with Laura Brown of InStyle Magazine to talk about a number of subjects that included the fuss between Curry and Trump, and how he thinks the president missed a great chance at fostering peace in a nation divided with different views and ideologies.
Steph is a very good buddy of mine—I know him and his family. And at the time when he declined the offer, I felt like it was our president’s perfect opportunity to say, “Now you must come to the White House and sit down with me, and I must hear you and understand you.”
For everyone who’s followed Trump, it’s unlikely for him to smell what the Rock is cooking so to speak, but that shouldn’t stop him nor anyone from making strong opinions.
