Logan Paul has doubled down on his plan to become US President and wants to make brother Jake the Secretary of Defence.
YouTube boxer Paul has previously outlined his plans to run for US Presidency, believing that the country needs a leader who is more authentic and creative. He will have to hold off until 2032 to do so, as US law states the minimum age to run for Presidency is 35.
Paul, who turned 27 last month, was one of the first YouTubers to cross over to boxing when he fought fellow internet star KSI in a white-collar match four years ago. His last boxing match took place almost a year ago, going eight rounds with ring legend Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition fight.
Speaking at ‘The Future of Everything Festival’ with the Wall Street Journal, Paul said: “I, Logan Paul, will be running for president in 2032.” When asked what role Jake would have, Paul laughed and replied: “Jake is Secretary of Defence”.

In an old episode of his podcast ‘Impaulsive’, Paul guaranteed that he would be President before he dies. He also considered waiting until he turned 50 to make his run, as he will have more “intelligence and wisdom” and that age.
Speaking of his Presidency plans earlier this year, he said on The MMA Hour : “I’m 26 and I’ll be eligible to run for president when I’m 35. That gives me nine more years to become the best version of myself possible and to learn as much as I can about people, culture, society, where we fall short and where we are strong.
“I just think I’ll be a good leader one day and I think the presidential spot needs a fresh take. I think the country could use a person who is a little bit more nuanced, more innovative and authentic because I think a lot of politicians fall short.
“Personally I have trouble watching because I know that you are reading off a teleprompter and this speech was written for you by a campaign manager and I’m not like that.”
Jake also plans to give his brother’s Presidency hopes a run for his money, previously stating the pair would “flip a coin” to decide who gets to be the President: “I might be President, he might,” Jake told Overtime. “I think we’re gonna flip a coin and see who gets to be the president versus Vice President. [Logan] is more PC [politically correct] and he’s likeable, where I’m like the villain.”
