On Thursday, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that President Donald Trump downfall will be his need for ultimate loyalty.
It was revealed that David Pecker, publisher of National Enquirer, has more hidden stories about Trump than what was originally reported.
“The relationship that existed between David Pecker and Donald Trump was for over a decade,” Avenatti said. “What’s amazing to me frankly, is that this is another example of someone close to Trump that didn’t trust him.”
He added, “You have Michael Cohen who was at the right hand of Donald Trump for the better part of 10 to 12 years, felt it necessary to tape their conversations, maintain evidence against Donald Trump in the event it was needed. Now we find out that it appears David Pecker did the same thing at the same time, and he was supposedly friends with Donald Trump.”
“He knew better than to trust him entirely. In fact, it appears he knew he could not trust him and that’s why he maintained this information,” he said. “This standard will ultimately be the downfall of Donald Trump. Trump demands 100 percent loyalty from everyone around him but gives loyalty to no one. ultimately it is going to come back and bite him.”

WATCH: Larry Kudlow wilts under barrage of questions about Trump’s conflicting trade war comments
Larry Kudlow, who appeared to have been drinking before his Fox News appearance last Sunday, probably wished he was drinking this Sunday after his stammering performance on CNN where he faced a barrage of questions from "State of the Union" fill-in host Brianna Keilar.
Speaking from France where he is attending the G7 conference with Donald Trump, Kudlow was put on the spot over the president's comments where he seemed to express regret over launching a trade war with China.
According to the president's economic adviser, Trump failed to hear a reporter's question over whether he had any "second thoughts" about launching a trade war with China.
Mnuchin begs Chris Wallace: Take the president ‘very literally’ except on being ‘the chosen one’
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin insisted on Sunday that Americans should take President Donald Trump's hyperbolic comments "very literally" -- but he allowed for some exceptions.
During an interview on FOX News Sunday, host Chris Wallace noted that Trump had recently "ordered" companies not to do business with China.
"When the president says something, how seriously, how literally should we take it?" Wallace asked.
"I think most of the time, you should take it very literally," Mnuchin insisted. "I think sometimes he says things that are meant to be a joke."
White House spokesperson ridiculed for ‘pathetic’ spin on Trump’s trade war admission: ‘Does she think we believe that?’
Hours after Donald Trump blithely admitted that he had "second thoughts" about his trade war with China that has damaged the U.S. economy and helped set the stage for a possible recession, White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham was forced to issue a clarification about the president's comments.
Addressing Trump's G7 response about his tariffs, widely interpreted by the press as expressing some regret, Grisham issued a statement saying the president meant that he wished he had increased his market-destroying tariffs even more.
"The President was asked if he had ‘any second thought on escalating the trade war with China,'" White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham relayed. "His answer has been greatly misinterpreted. President Trump responded in the affirmative - because he regrets not raising the tariffs higher."
