Don't expect to see the White House closets full of gray T-shirts anytime soon. That's because the wearer of said shirts — Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg — is not running for office.

He made the announcement Sunday in a lengthy Facebook post. The post mainly focused on his New Year's resolution to visit and meet people in all 50 states.

Although a cross-country trip could signal a potential political campaign, Zuckerberg noted that's not his intent.

Instead, he hopes meeting new people will help him gain "a broader perspective" into who is using Facebook.

"Pizza and us," Dwayne Johnson said.
