Attorney Michael Avenatti said during an interview Sunday that senior leaders inside the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are encouraging him to seek the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt asked Avenatti how he thinks he stacks up compared to other possible 2020 presidential candidates.

“I’ve been traveling around the country, raising money for Democrats. I’ve received an incredible response, every state that I’ve gone to. I think I’ve surprised a lot of people. I’ve received a lot of encouragement in various states to run. I’ve received a lot of encouragement from the Democratic National Committee, and senior leadership within the committee, frankly, to run,” Avenatti said.

Avenatti added that people “want a fighter, and people want somebody that can actually beat Donald Trump.”

“I don’t care how much experience you have. I don’t care how deep you are on policy. If you can’t beat Donald Trump, you don’t have any business running for the presidency of the United States in 2020, because if you can’t beat Donald Trump, you go home,” Avenatti concluded.
