McAfee is throwing his hat into the ring with the likes of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, with an "official announcement" to come from camp McAfee at 6PM ET. McAfee's Twitter account has been teasing #mcafee16, and during an interview with Wired, McAfee said he wasn't 100% on whether he wanted to run for president or not, but he does think there needs to be a change within the US government.

During the interview with Wired, McAfee said: "It's clear that the leadership of our country is illiterate on the fundamental technology that supports everything in life for us now, that is cyber science, our smartphones, our military hardware, our communications".
