Ladbrokes’ latest odds on Mr Trump being given the boot are their shortest yet, with the President now at 9/4 to be replaced via impeachment or resignation before the year is out.
There are also odds of 7/2 that he’ll be out at some point during 2018, 8/1 for a 2019 exit and 16/1 that he’ll still be in the White House come 2020.
Anyone fancying their chances of a big pay day come 2024 can place their bets on the President still being in office then, with odds of 50/1.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Political punters are starting to think it’s genuinely a case of when and not if Trump has to wave goodbye to the White House, and they’re willing to stake money that could be tied up for nearly four years.”
In what Ladbrokes have dubbed their ‘Donald Trump Specials’, gamblers can also bet on the former Apprentice star not being re-elected as President in 2020 (2/7), leaving office via impeachment or resignation before the end of his first term (4/7) and serving a full first term (5/4).
These odds come in the wake of former FBI director James Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee, in which he accused the President of lying.
Mr Trump wasn’t going to take any of that lying down, responding by calling Mr Comey “a leaker” on Twitter.
Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!

I believe the James Comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible. Totally illegal? Very 'cowardly!'

Mr Comey’s testimony came immediately after two Democrat congressmen, Al Green and Brad Sherman, began impeachment proceedings against the President.
Will Mr Trump defy the odds? We can but wait and see…
