The verdict is in from our politics trading team. And it’s not good news for President Donald Trump.
Odds of an impeachment before the end of his first term have been slashed from 5/2 into just 6/4.
Meanwhile, odds of the 72-year-old being replaced in the White House this year have also been trimmed into 13/2 (from 10/1).
His chances of re-election in 2020 look unlikely, with 1/2 for Trump not to serve a second term.
As it stands, he’s still more likely than not to serve out the first term at 4/9, but the impeachment price has tumbled significantly.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s been a busy week in the world of politics and the latest news has led to punters predicting an impeachment before the end of Trump’s 1st Term.”
