Paddy Power announce Head of Trump Betting

Joe Lee’s going to make punting on the US president great again…


Paddy Power is pleased to announce the appointment of Joe Lee – previously a sports trader for more than 15 years – to the role of Head of Trump Betting.

Already online, Paddy Power’s ‘Trump Hub’, a micro-site which hosts more than 150+ special bets on the US President, and the appointment of Lee is the next step in our focus on Trump.

“It’s only a three-month contract to start with but, let’s face it, could you guarantee Trump (or the world) lasting beyond that?

Head of Trump Betting Joe Lee said: “I haven’t got much experience for this job. A bit like Trump and the Presidency.
