The Independent candidate for president you may never have heard of has held a Reddit 'Ask Me Anything' Q&A.

Donald Trump may be hogging all of the headlines but Independent Presidential candidate Steve Gladstone took to Reddit on Friday to speak directly to the three million subscribers of the 'Politics' subreddit.

He introduced himself as "a 35 year old computer programmer guy who is running for President as an Independent because he's tired of the partisan politics, the annoying rhetoric, and watching as the nation becomes a battleground of red vs blue with some folks in the middle going 'wtf?'"

He jokingly added, "I also code, game, and am a ninja".

He answered questions over a four hour period ranging from the details of his policies to his thoughts on Donald Trump to how hard he is finding gaining traction in the media as an Independent candidate.

"I've reached out to news outlets, papers etc... thus far, not much traction".

"This is the issue I grapple with constantly. I'm going to keep up with the content and hope for a kinda grassroots effort. I think people on both sides will find stuff to like in what I say".

"I have the time and money to travel and speak.... Now it's just finding those avenues to speak".
