Ahead of SCOTUS Retirement News Trump had Best Odds Yet of 2020 Win

BetOnline's Dave Mason observed that US President Donald Trump did have the best odds yet since being elected to remain in office past 2020.

Mason tweeted:


Interesting. President Trump down to +140 to repeat in 2020. Lowest his odds have been.

On Thursday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he would be retiring the end of July. The 81-year-old Kennedy said in a statement he is stepping down after more than 30 years on the court.

Kennedy stepping down would almost certainly ensure Trump gets a second Supreme Court pick.

It should be noted that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will have reached 90 midway through a Trump second term in office, leading many to believe there will be additional vacancies within the next six years.

Trump's odds remained unchanged at +140 following that news.

Currently, a $10 USD bet on Trump's re-election would pay out $14 USD should it happen.

BetOnline was expected to release next to be elected SCOTUS odds shortly.
