The last few hours have been yet another Donald Trump whirlwind. So much so, that our traders have decided to slash the odds on him being impeached, after the latest development in the US President’s links to Russia.
His son, Donald Trump Jr., may claim his meeting with a Russian lawyer boasting links to the Kremlin “was a nothing”, but we’re calling bullsh*t and have reacted by drastically amending our various Trump odds.

- Cut the odds of Trump being impeached in his first term to their shortest ever price of 4/6 – reflecting a 60% chance.
- Made 2017 the favourite for his year of impeachment, halving the odds from 4/1 to 2/1 (33.3%)
- Priced the chances of the FBI confirming Russian collusion with Trump at 4/9 (69.2%) – an increase from 8/11 (57.9%).
- Heaped the pressure on Trump by rating his chances of him failing to complete his first term at 4/6.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “We’ve made more cuts than Trump to climate change funding.
“He’d gone quiet over the last month, and we were starting to wonder if he might have ridden out the initial controversies – but he’s back with a bang today, and this could be the beginning of the end of the most unlikely President in history.”
