Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti said that there is “a very short list” of people who can beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential race, and he alluded to the fact that he’s on it on AM Joy on Sunday morning.
“You know, Joy, I don’t know yet. I mean, I’ve rung the alarm bell,” Avenatti said when Joy Reid asked him if he was running for president in 2020. “I think the Democratic Party needs to put forward some candidates that can actually beat Donald Trump. I think that’s a very short list.”
When asked what the most effective message against Trump was, Avenatti said “the truth.”
Avenatti said on Twitter on Wednesday that he will run if he is the only potential Democratic candidate “that has a REAL chance at beating” Trump in 2020.
IF (big) he seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him. We can’t relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed. #FightClub #Basta

Avenatti dismissed claims that he is just another “celebrity” presidential candidate in a Saturday tweet. “‘Celebrity’ diminishes the 18 years of substantive legal work I did before Stormy,” the tweet stated.
As long as you don’t call me a “celebrity,” I don’t care what you call me. “Celebrity” diminishes the 18 years of substantive legal work I did before Stormy – representing the powerless against con men, fraudsters, and big corporations looking to do harm to ordinary people.
