Paddy Power seeks appointment to lead Trump betting
Paddy Power has created a new role to head up the bookmaker’s betting options on US President Donald Trump.
The successful candidate for the ‘head of Trump betting’ position will manage the company’s ‘Trump Hub’ of special bets.
Paddy Power currently offers more than 100 markets on the US President and the three-month role will include devising new special bets on Trump, who took office earlier this year.
Paddy Power lost almost £5 million (€5.8 million/$6.2 million) by paying out early on Hillary Clinton winning last year’s Presidential election.
However, despite the loss, the bookmaker has pushed ahead with further betting options on Trump, and the special ‘Trump Hub’ launched last month.
Current wagering options include enhanced odds for Trump to be impeached and for Mexico to directly fund the planned wall on its border with the US.
