Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti slammed President Donald Trump during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Friday.

Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani have given conflicting accounts on whether or not Trump will answer questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

On Friday abroad Air Force One Trump said, "I don't want to be set up with a perjury trap."

"He's afraid of a perjury trap. Is that a fair fear or is he afraid of something else?" Cuomo asked Avenatti.

"No. This is a president that can barely answer questions when he has Fox News asking the questions. How do you think he's going to handle someone like myself or Bob Mueller asking questions? It would be an absolute disaster for him, and he knows it," Avenatti said.
