Despite his arrest over an alleged domestic violence incident Wednesday evening, attorney Michael Avenatti — who rose to prominence representing porn actress Stormy Daniels against President Trump — is “still considering” a 2020 bid for president, USA Today reported.
“I’m still considering it,” Avenatti told USA Today. “I will not be intimidated. … The measure of a person is how they get up when they are knocked down.”
Avenatti has ardently defended himself against the allegation of domestic violence since he posted a $50,000 bail. On Thursday, he tweeted that he hadn’t been charged with anything related to the allegation and told reporters he had “never struck a woman” and never would.
Los Angeles Police have said the victim had visible injuries.
