Attorney Michael Avenatti, who rose to prominence after representing Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, will no longer seek the White House in 2020.

Avenatti, who was arrested for suspected domestic violence in Los Angeles in November, wrote on Twitter: "After consultation with my family and at their request, I have decided not to seek the Presidency of the United States in 2020. I do not make this decision lightly – I make it out of respect for my family. But for their concerns, I would run."
