Mr. Trump has already been heavily campaigning with high hopes of being reelected to the Oval Office for another four years. However, the president’s future becomes more and more uncertain especially with the latest news that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has decided to cooperate with Mueller, meaning that Mr. Trump will not be able to pardon him.
On Friday, Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti attacked the Trump campaign over a fundraising photo. Avenatti retweeted a photo of campaign manager Brad Parscale with the president’s son Eric Trump aboard a jet.
‘Ladies and Gentlemen – I bring you the men fighting on the front lines for working class people across America. Pls ignore the shades, gold watch, smug look, private jet, and sheer cockiness. Trust me – they really do care about you. What a joke.’
Trump ran most of his 2016 campaign on drumming up support from white, working-class voters, which was a large factor in propelling him to victory. In fact, Democrats may have made the error of relying too much on working-class people for votes.
Avenatti is representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in a lawsuit against Trump over a nondisclosure agreement that was meant to keep her quiet about an alleged affair with him in 2006.
Avenatti has made several media appearances and been outwardly critical of Mr. Trump. On Thursday, in The New York Times, Avenatti had an OP-ED published, which laid out the case for why Trump could be indicted. He wrote:
‘The fact that Mr. Trump is a sitting president should not derail a process that applies to all Americans, regardless of stature or station. He would still have the post-indictment relief available to all citizens, including the ability to challenge the constitutionality of the indictment. Some also argue that indicting the president would critically impair his ability to lead the country. But this is a White House already engulfed in chaos and daily distractions. And if the House were to initiate impeachment proceedings, it is hard to see how that process would be any less distracting than a criminal indictment.’
Avenatti has also announced a potential 2020 presidential bid as a Democratic candidate. He said on Twitter that the only way he would run is if Trump definitely seeks reelection and if no other candidate has a “REAL chance” of beating him.
‘Be clear — only a street fighter has a chance at displacing the “King.” Otherwise, this country and its principles will be in pieces and non-recognizable.’
‘To those that claim that only a traditional politician with ‘experience’ can beat Trump, go back & look at the results from 2016. He beat all 15 of those candidates that he faced (crushed many). If we go down the same path and are not smart, don’t be surprised with the result.’
Here’s what Twitter had to say about Trump’s campaign photo:
It won’t be long until the 2020 Trump campaign will be in shambles and truly qualified candidate will finally take his place in the White House.
