John McAfee plans 2020 presidential tilt

Crypto-libertarian will form his own party, but first to launch his paper-based cryptocurrency

John McAfee will run for US president again.

In spite of going on the run from the Securities Exchange Commission last month, McAfee yesterday Tweeted his decision, which reverses his previous statements that his political career was over.

McAfee ran in the 2016 election which brought current POTUS Donald Trump to the White House.
