It may not have entirely hit home yet for some, but on Friday, 20th January, star of The Apprentice and recent friend to former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Donald J Trump, will become the 46th president of the United States of America.
While Mr Trump’s detractors are no doubt still hoping that it will never happen, bookies in the UK are using Mr Trump’s inauguration to the White House as an opportunity to have a little fun.
Mr Trump became especially well-known for his fondness for certain phrases over the last year especially, frequently ending his tweets with a single cutting word or phrase, referring to his political opponents by some unflattering nickname, or mentioning China at least once in his speeches. Although some may be concerned that Mr Trump’s words will one day get him into trouble, bookmakers including Ladbrokes could help make punters a little richer, by offering odds on Trump dropping in some of his many catchphrases and name-drops during his speech tomorrow.
|Make America Great Again||1/50|
Here are the odds that Ladbrokes is currently offering on Trump’s many favourite buzzwords and names.
Competitor William Hill is also following suit, allowing punters to put bets on Trump mentioning such things as Putin (3/1) and Make America Great Again at 1/20.
