Jesse Ventura: I'm 'Off The Grid.. So That The Drones Can't Find Me'

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura said he lives "off the grid... so that the drones can't find me" in an interview with CNBC's "Closing Bell" on Tuesday.

“I’m off the grid. I move about with my TV show so that the drones can’t find me and you won’t know exactly where I am,” Ventura said, telling the hosts he was doing the interview from an “undisclosed location in Mexico."

"I view the United States today much like East Berlin. And I'm off the grid. I've tried for 20 years to warn the country about the Democrats and Republicans and nobody's listening from the inside looking out," Ventura said. "Now I'm doing it on the outside looking in. I now view the United States from the outside and I don't like what I see."

Ventura is currently promoting his show "Off The Grid" on Ora TV. The former wrestler said the show makes him a "job creator" that's keeping people from coming into the United States illegally.

“And I’m not only creating jobs, putting Mexicans to work, I’m stopping them from running across the border now and taking our jobs, because my whole staff said that if I wasn’t down here, and I didn’t have them, they’d be coming up to America, looking for jobs," Ventura said.
