Will Donald Trump Get Impeached?
In the history of US presidency, the only men to have ever resigned or have been impeached were Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. But is there about to be one more?
Just weeks into former American president Donald Trump being elected as president, there’s already huge speculation that the prospect of him not making it through his term is a lot likelier than one would think.
Odds are being set at close to even that this will be the case-currently wavering at 11/10 with Ladbrokes and with odds at an even 1/2 that he will not be re-elected as President in 2020, hardly presenting confidence from the American nation in the ability of their head of state to run the country.
The unpredictability of his time as president has evoked creativity from book makers which has resulted in big business, with Paddy Power already paying out around 5 Million Dollars to those betting on Trump to win the election. Alex Donohue, PR manager of Ladbrokes told Politico
"From a betting perspective, Donald Trump’s presidency has triggered a massive boom for these kinds of markets”. He also said, "With Donald Trump, everything he does, it can be turned into speculation, and that can be turned into gambling”
Paddy Power and Ladbrokes have taken this political opportunity to dish out all sorts of odds with a ‘Donald Trump Specials’ section, including odds for Donald Trump to win a 2017 Nobel Peace Prize at 1 in 100 chance but claim that their most popular bet is on Trump to be impeached within 6 months.
Paddy Power has odds at 40% that Trump will not complete his first term. Reasons are not specified but possibilities include impeachment, resignation or death. For the same outcome, 8 years ago Barak Obama was given just an 8% chance.
With Gambling deals offering up to 20% cash back every time you play at many of the world's leading betting exchange companies with odds on Trump, there's not been a better time to get involved, so strike whilst the iron's hot!
With Trump being a former owner of casinos, it’s safe to say that he probably wouldn’t be betting on himself to remain as president given these odds! But only time will tell.
