The lawyer representing adult actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against Donald Trump, has said he will run against the president if he seeks reelection in 2020.

Michael Avenatti, whose ability to grab headlines almost matches that of the president, said he will run for the White House if there is no other candidate in the race he believes can defeat Mr Trump.

“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,” said Mr Avenatti.
