Attorney Michael Avenatti is no stranger to calling out President Donald Trump. The Stormy Daniels representative is known for not mincing words when criticizing the president and his former lawyer Michael Cohen.
On Friday, Avenatti took to the streets of London to join the massive resistance across the pond. The fiery attorney began tweeting to make sure that Trump knew.
Yep, lots of respect for Mr. Trump here in London today. BIGLY respect. #FightClub #Basta https://t.co/fTqKaAJozi— Michael Avenatti (@Michael Avenatti) 1531491877.0
Huge turnout. And people are fired up. #FightClub #Basta https://t.co/WuLER1dmJ1— Michael Avenatti (@Michael Avenatti) 1531491883.0
The tweets come a day after Trump insisted that “I get thousands of notifications from people in the UK that they love the President of the United States.” In the same interview, Trump mentioned a poll that had him beating Abraham Lincoln for most popular Republican (he did not specify the name of the poll) before saying that if an "honest poll" were conducted in the UK, he'd be "very strong."
Twitter seemed to side more with Avenatti.

Avenatti is one of the thousands taking to the streets of London to protest Donald Trump. The protests come just a day after Trump's latest slight against our closest ally.
Trump shocked Americans and Brits alike when he criticized Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May's plans to maintain strong trade relations with the European Union after the fast-approaching Brexit, saying the plans would "probably kill" a trade deal with the United States.
His comments motivated an already irate number of London protesters. And, like Avenatti, they made sure to tell the President via his direct line: Twitter.

The massive protests have effectively kept Trump out of London for the majority of his trip. The president said of the protests:
“I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.”
Thousands of Londoners agree.
After tea with the Queen and a short trip to Scotland, the president will head to Helsinki, Finland for a one-on-one summit with Russian President Vladimir V. Putin, a meeting he said could be "the easiest of them all." The President seems to be looking forward to a warm welcome from the Kremlin.
