Are you a fan of political betting? Then why not join PaddyPower and wager on who lasts longer in power between Trump and Kim Jong Un.
It’s safe to assume that the past month has been a little stressful for both Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. Trump has faced wave after wave of criticism for various debacles including dubious Russian ties and offensive comments, while Un is almost universally considered to be, for lack of a better word, a psychopath.
The world is in a very interesting place right now, and there’s no telling what could drive either of these men from power. In Trump’s case, it would likely take impeachment, as old Donald doesn’t seem to be the guy to vacate the White House unless forced. Kim Jong Un would likely only be pushed from his throne atop the hermit kingdom from some kind of coup or foreign military intervention.
Believe it or not, one of the best online sportsbooks in the UK, PaddyPower, is actually allowing their members to bet on who lasts longer in power between Trump or Kim Jong Un. Let’s take a look at the betting lines.
Trump vs. Kim Jong Un betting odds
As we mentioned before, forcing Donald Trump out of office would (theoretically) be much easier than Kim Jong Un, a dictator who rules with an iron fist. There are some straightforward grounds for Trump’s impeachment that could eventually spring up, in which case the 45th President would be forced to go. For this reason, Trump’s odds to leave office first are much higher at 17/10.
If history is any indication, the only way a North Korean leader gives up his position is if they die. Now, based on Jong Un’s reported lifestyle habits (which may or may not include casino cheating tactics) and his many nearby enemy countries, it’s not crazy to imagine him biting the dust sometime soon. Nonetheless, he is a considerable betting favorite to hold his position longer with PaddyPower odds of 4/11.
