Despite being imprisoned for murder-for-hire conspiracy and animal abuse, Maldonado told Lawrence Jones he had a shot at taking the White House like any other legal candidate.
“It’s my constitutional right to do that. It doesn’t matter what people think,” Maldonado said, responding to critics of his campaign.
He said changes must be made in the US political and judicial systems.
He continued, “Things have to change in our country, in our political system, in our Department of Justice, in our prison system.” “Someone should start asking some real questions of the people who are working their butts off in this country to pay these politicians’ bills to keep pushing that money away.”
Jones noted that Maldonado’s campaign had already received criticism from the Libertarian Party as well, saying that the party’s chairwoman, Angela McArdle, had claimed, “We are not a landing pad for former reality stars and D-list celebrities.”
Maldonado responded by attempting to run Oklahoma governor in 2018He said that the Liberal Party colluded against him.
“When I ran for governor of Oklahoma, the libertarian party voted not to let independents vote just because they couldn’t vote for me, and I expected that outside of the libertarian party.”
“…I don’t see the Libertarian Party in the news, do I?” Maldonado asked.
He also shared his presidential campaign plans, such as diminishing America’s role on the world stage, arguing that working people in America should not be responsible for taking care of the rest of the world.
“We have to stop policing the rest of the world, well, and we have to stop funding everyone else’s culture. It’s not the problem of working people in America to take care of the rest of the world,” Maldonado said. “We’re sending billions and billions of dollars to other countries for gender identity—for their wars, for their crap—and we’re cutting social security for grandma and grandpa in America, we’ve got homeless vets, and it’s just that — backwards.”
Maldonado referred to the allegations against Russian President Vladimir PutinAnd former President Donald Trump and the Biden family.
“What the hell does it matter if someone in prison sees the system for what it is?”
