Cashing In On Donald Trump

If Donald Trump become the next US President, I - like some Americans - will be kicking myself.

You see, sometime last year, I had a spare pound in my Paddy Power betting account and was looking for something to waste it on. I looked over the 'Next US President' market and saw the firm was offering Trump at odds of 66/1.

I placed the bet. For a laugh. Seriously.

I was looking through my open bets during this week and noticed that the bookie was offering me the chance to cash out. The offer was £12.34.

£11.34 or £66?

Trump not to become president or the US being in the hands of Trump?

I went with my head and cashed out.

Not bad for a joke bet, right?

For what it's worth, he's now a second-favourite to win the Presidency. His price is 4/1 at the time of writing.
