Michael Avenatti Announces He Will Run For President in 2020 If Trump Seeks Re-election And There Are No Good Challengers



Michael Avenatti, the attorney who has become a national sensation by not only defending adult film star Stormy Daniels, but also through his tireless efforts to defend families which have been separated by Trump’s policies at the southern border, made quite a declaration this morning.

Supporters of Avenatti have been questioning if he could potentially run against President Trump in the 2020 election. Avenatti has not given any indication either way, up until this morning, when HillReporter’s Brian Krassenstein (also my brother), asked the direct question, “When are you announcing your 2020 run?”.

Avenatti’s response was quite surprising::

Avenatti then followed up with an addition tweet a couple hours later:

Apparently he has given a potential 2020 Presidential bid major consideration, and while he believes that there is a good chance that Trump will no longer be President by the time the election rolls around (either through resignation or impeachment), he will challenge Trump if he doesn’t feel there is a candidate capable of defeating our current President when 2020 rolls around.

Avenatti told Newsweek, that he “yes, absolutely” believes he could defeat Donald Trump if he did run against him. “I think I would be his worst nightmare. I think it would be an extremely contentious campaign, no holds barred, and very close,” Avenatti explained.
