While all political focus these days is on the 2018 midterms, it will be just a few short months after when 2020 presidential candidates will begin making themselves known. Which Democrat will rise to the top to challenge Trump is the question on most everyone’s mind.
Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Trump’s alleged former mistress as well as the ICE whistleblowers leaving because of and talking about Trump’s family separation policy, retweeted the cover of the NY Daily News that was getting so much attention on the Fourth of July.
One follower challenged Avenatti to throw his hat in the ring, likely not expecting that the famous attorney is considering doing just that.
While most sane Americans would prefer for our next president to be more qualified and experienced than Trump, that’s not really a high bar to set. Avenatti, at least, has an understanding of the law and a desire to fight corruption rather than wallow in it. At this point, there are teenagers who are more qualified and experienced than Donald Trump.
The attorney who has made a name for himself fighting a corrupt presidential administration and exposing the lies behind the liar in the White House may or may not run, but his assessment is correct. Democrats need a fighter in both the 2020 presidential elections as well as the 2018 midterms. Luckily, the fighters are the voters, and all signs point to those voters showing up in droves to end this lawless presidency.
Twitter was excited by the announcement. See some of their comments below:
