The President of the United States is elected in a complicated, two-step system, created over 200 years ago at the beginning of the American state. Although it is often criticized as an anachronism, there is no change for now. Formally, the president elects. According to the constitution adopted in 1787, each state appoints as many electors as there were representatives in the House of Representatives and the Senate. Some celebrities are willing to rule the US. Today, we present to you 8 stars who are possible candidates for the run for president of the US in 2020.

4. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
On the episode of "Saturday Night Live," Tom Hanks joined The Rock during his monologue to announce their campaign with a banner and a lot of confetti. "This past election shows anything can happen," The Rock said to Vanity Fair in November 2016 when asked if he'd run for president. "It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it's possible." And that was not the first time he spilled the beans about him interested in being the president of the US. In March 2016, he wrote, "Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck." His slogan: "The foundation this nation needs".
It seems to me that there is nothing wrong with smiling in moderation as long as people know you can easily switch at a moments notice if the situation calls for it. "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson seems to me to get this right.— DEPORT DACA DEUSVULT (@ItsOkay2BeWhite) 23 lutego 2018

8. Will Smith
During the time of promoting his film "Concussion" in December 2015, Will Smith said to CBS News that he's thinking about walking into politics. "I mean, I gotta be the President. Come on! What else would I run for?" Smith admitted. It's possible that a Smith rally would feature performances by his children: Willow and Jaden. His slogan: "In pursuit of this nation's happiness".
The US system of indirect elections is increasingly being criticized. His opponents argue that it distorts the true distribution of voters' preferences. Polls indicate that most Americans are in favor of the abolition of the College of Electors and the election of the president only on the basis of the results of popular voting. However, it would require a change to the constitution.
