GOP nominee Donald Trump had seen very little action pre-Election season, though they still listed him among the options as the real estate magnate had regularly flirted with the idea of running for US President.

Trump reached his peak May 2016 at 13/8 short odds but recent revelations have halted his momentum and caused his chances of victory to plummet like the value of sterling, resulting in chunky odds of 9/2 (representing a 18.2 per cent chance of winning), the popular bookmaker reports.

A Paddy Power spokesperson said: ‘Trump gave it a hell of a shot going from a rank outsider to the Republican candidate but the recent flood of revelations have halted his momentum and his chances now look as patchy as his tan. Recent betting trends have shown one way traffic for Hillary and punters seemed to have called it 100 per cent correct. Despite Trump’s Make America Great Again message appealing to many disillusioned voters, it looks as though America are going to put a woman in the White House.”
