Dan Bilzerian‘s dead set on running for President of the United States and winning, and to show he’s serious … he’s willing to give up a few of his favorite things.
The popular playboy poker player tells TMZ … he wasn’t joking when he recently told us he plans to run for Prez in 2024, and he vows to go straight edge if he’s elected — no sex, drugs or alcohol — and will abstain his entire time in office.
Dan says he’ll be quitting those activities to both focus on the task at hand and prove to voters he means business … consider it his major campaign promise.
As for what else he’ll run on … Bilzerian tells us he believes the world needs his help, there’s too much corruption and too many laws, and saving the environment should be a top priority.
He also says he’ll run as a Republican, but points out he has some traditionally liberal views too. For instance — Dan’s very pro-gun, but he’s also pro-choice. He says he’s pro-gay rights but doesn’t agree with hormone treatments or sex changes for people under 18.
Bilzerian does give us a caveat — he recognizes becoming a presidential candidate will drastically alter his life, so he says he might need more time to commit … in which case he’ll run in 2028.
Dan’s already got one thing going for him — he’s pretty damn rich. With an estimated net worth of $150 million, he says he plans to use half his money for his campaign and the other half for philanthropy.
He tells us he plans on giving it his all and thinks he has a pretty good chance of winning. Of course, he seems to think he’ll have an even better shot if Kanye West isn’t one of his opponents.
