George Clooney is once again back in the forefront with rumors claiming the “Catch-22” director eyeing the presidential office, causing some buzz to be made about him possibly ending up as the President of the United States in 2020. However, this notion has repeatedly been debunked by Gossip Cop.

June 2019: Barack Obama Convinces George To Run In 2020

George and Amal have been very vocal about their distaste for US President Donald Trump. So it comes as no surprise that seeing former President Barack Obama hanging out with George and Amal would spark rumors about the actor running for presidency. According to a report by Women’s Day, the former president attempted to convince George to run for president in 2020.

The Truth

George has been very active in his efforts to make certain issues and concerns heard, even speaking out against Donald Trump several times — with one instance hearing George endorsing anyone who would “make this president a one-term president.” However, the actor has no interest in being the President of the United States. He even believes he’s actually not right for the role.

“I am not going to get into politics,” he said. “It doesn't seem like a very logical place for me to be able to apply what skills I have. I don't have to make compromise for the things that I stand for and the things I believe in like politicians do. So it is not something that interests me.”
