Trump courted controversy throughout his presidential campaign and still won, but fresh allegations have suggested that Russian intelligence services have compromising information about him. The claims relate to Trump’s businesses and alleged footage of him using prostitutes in Moscow.
Trump has insisted the allegations are ‘false and fictitious’, while Russia have also dismissed the story as ‘pulp fiction’, but the latest developments have prompted bookies to open up a new set of odds
What Are The Odds?
Ladbrokes is among the bookies to have reacted to the allegations with a host of fresh markets. Trump is now 11/10 to leave office via impeachment or resignation before the end of his first term, and 6/1 not to be inaugurated on 20th January.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Fake news or real news, it hasn’t deterred punters from putting their money on the line that Trump is impeached before the end of his first term.”
What Next For Trump?
Trump will hope there are no more dramas before his big day, and he can then focus on serving the American people. Ladbrokes has odds of 5/4 that Trump will visit Russia before the end of the year, as well as 1/5 that he will visit the UK in 2017. A price of 7/1 is available on Nigel Farage being the next UK ambassador to the US, and Trump is 8/11 to serve a full term.
Longer term, Ladbrokes rates the chances of Trump not being re-elected in 2020 at 1/2. There is a lot to happen before the next election, though, and bookies are sure to keep offering specials on possible big events in the ongoing Trump soap opera!
