McAfee formally launched his candidacy for the presidency over a year ago but has recently taken aim at The Donald over some issues.

Most recently he told the President to "get a clue" about cryptocurrencies after the administration hinted they would attempt to regulate them.

He plans to seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party again or form his own.

Last week, McAfee claimed to have sought refuge in London and Paris after being released by Dominican authorities on Wednesday.

The eccentric millionaire, 73, had been detained last week after a cache of weapons, ammunition and cash were found on his boat when it docked in the Dominican Republic.

His lawyer, Candido Simon, said McAffee had been released after Dominican authorities ensured he was not the subject of any active legal cases or extradition requests in the United States.

Police in Belize, where McAfee previously lived, have also said he is a "person of interest" in an investigation into the 2012 murder of a neighbour with whom he had recently had a dispute.

McAfee rose to prominence after founding McAfee Associates in 1987 to sell the first commercially available anti-virus software.

His personal wealth peaked in 2007 at around $100 million, but plummeted after the global financial crisis that begun later that year.

He is known for a number of controversial political views, including a belief that taxes are illegal and an opposition to any redistribution of wealth, and has previously sought to become the US presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party.

You just have to love the main-stream media. He would be ten times better than the Trumpster and any Dem in public life today. People are just too gullible for any political system to work and why so many political thugs have done so well in world history. Even the U.S. Consitution and Bill of Rights has been legislated and adjudicated into irrelevancy.
