Who Is Donald Trump?

Presidential Seal2020 Presidential Election Update (11/4): Right now, it appears that Trump will be a one-termer, as Joe Biden is in the driver’s seat to win the 2020 election. There are a few swing state odds still available at the best election betting sites, and you will likely find a host of political prop bets on recounts and court challenges over the next few weeks as this race is contested. 

Donald Trump is 72 years old and the United States’ 45th and current President. Trump ran for President in 2016 as a Republican and filed his reelection campaign with the FEC on the date of his presidential inauguration on January 20, 2019.

Before becoming POTUS, Trump was best known for his real estate development and reality television appearances. Ever since taking office, the best online sportsbooks have had non-stop Trump odds on offer in every imaginable political betting market. It is safe to say that Trump is the most bet-on (and bet-against) President in US history.

Voter Base

Based on the available data from the 2016 Presidential Election and various research centers, we can draw a target voter base Trump appeals to which includes:

  • Men
  • Women
  • Conservatives
  • Constitutionalists
  • Capitalists
  • Centrists
  • Evangelicals
  • Right-leaning minorities
  • 2nd Amendment advocates
  • Pro-lifers

The President’s wide appeal to a range of mainstream Republican and Independent platforms is one of the reasons why Trump reelection odds are so high despite the economic havoc wreaked by the current coronavirus outbreak (more on that below).

Odds Of Trump Being Reelected In 2020

Odds IconDonald Trump’s reelection odds were favorable until April when it became clear that his response to Black Lives Matter protests and the Coronavirus was not going over well with a majority of bettors. Since that time, Joe Biden has taken the lead in the 2020 Presidential election odds and is currently sitting as a higher favorite to win than any other candidate has at any time during the 2020 campaign.

  • Joe Biden (D) TBA*

2020 Trump Republican Nomination Odds

Odds Icon

Odds for winning the Republican nomination have been in Trump’s favor since they were initially released. Trump is the current incumbent Republican President and therefore has the best odds to receive his party’s nomination.

Unless the President suddenly drops out of the race or experiences a health episode, it is likely Trump will remain the Republican party’s primary nominee. Odds on Trump reelection are contingent upon taking the GOP ticket, which the President has already wrapped up. Currently, Trump betting odds on the GOP boards at MyBookie show that he’s basically a foregone conclusion:

Presidential Election – Republican Candidate

  • Donald Trump -2200*
  • Mike Pence +1400*
  • Nikki Haley +2500*
  • Mitt Romney +5000*
  • Paul Ryan +15000*
  • John Kasich +15000*

*(Odds from Jan. 2020)

The only credible challenger Trump has is his own Vice Presidential candidate, and Mike Pence is only there in case the POTUS is unable to run when the general election nears.

Trump Vs. Biden Odds

When it comes to Biden vs. Trump odds, some sites have head-to-head matchups, while others simply have odds on the Presidential winner (which are just as telling, given that Biden is the presumptive nominee). At Bovada, the race looks like this:

  • Donald Trump +120
  • Joe Biden -140

Meanwhile, at BetOnline, the showdown also favors Biden:

  • Donald Trump -110
  • Joe Biden -110

MyBookie has the starkest contrast with the best payouts for Trump:

  • Donald Trump -125
  • Joe Biden -105

Donald Trump Coronavirus Update

The coronavirus scare has had more of an impact on Donald Trump’s re-election odds than all of his “scandals” to date. This is attributable not to any action on the President’s part, but is indicative of the old adage that “It’s the economy, stupid.” Indeed, COVID-19 has rocked the stock market, one of Trump’s core strengths heading into November. America is very nearly in a real recession (which is something you can wager on at the best election betting sites).

A few days before Trump declared a national emergency over the Wuhan coronavirus, he was sitting at -5000 to win the GOP primary, but he’s at -3000 now. Meanwhile, as recently as last month, the odds of Trump winning the general election were at -140. Those odds are now at +100 or worse since the early days of the American lockdown.

Still, Trump has proved capable of weathering all storms to date, and if you think he’s going to do so again, you likely won’t find better odds or bigger payouts on Trump 2020 than you will right now. As with the stock market, buy the dip! To read further into how the Coronavirus is affecting Trump’s odds, see our Coronavirus Election Odds Impact page.

Can I Bet On Donald Trump 2020 Election Odds Now?

If you want to make as much money wagering on The Donald as possible, now’s the time to place your wagers on his chances to win the 2020 Presidential election. Trump’s GOP primary odds don’t hold much value due to his overwhelmingly favored status, but his payouts on the general election are currently trending in the low -120s, which is compelling.

If you think the incumbent is going to win like most incumbents do, hop aboard the Trump Train and ride it all the way to the bank. If you are looking for other ways to take money to the bank, look for political props and Trump press conference betting odds.

What The Current Lines Tell Us About The Chance Of Trump Winning In 2020

The odds suggest that Trump will lose in 2020, but they remain within striking distance of recovery and the debates have yet to occur. However, the question is whether or not Biden will remain the clear favorite. With the Vegas Trump odds provided, it is difficult for him to be considered a sure bet, and he is favored to lose across all three of our top-rated sportsbooks.

Chances Of Trump Reelection Based On Prediction Markets

As the current president, Trump’s chances of reelection are floundering at every offshore betting site. On prediction markets, PredictIt particularly, Trump is the only Republican with a real chance to win.

At 94%, Trump is well above all other competitors for the GOP nomination. Additionally, PredictIt suggests that the GOP will lose the electoral college election and Joe Biden will defeat Donald Trump in November.

Donald Trump Political Prop Bets

We have a page that specifically covers bets that lie outside the standard betting lines for candidates, including current Donald Trump political prop bets. You will find prop bets for Presidential debates, which party will win, odds Trump will be impeached (again), and even which nicknames Donald Trump will call his various Democrat opponents via Twitter. “Mini Mike Bloomberg” is his latest masterpiece, though “Andrew Coma” is trending now.

Trump Impeachment Odds

For bettors who put money on Trump impeachment, that paid out handsomely (comb-over and all) in late 2019 when the US House formally impeached the President. However, it seems very likely that the odds Trump gets impeached again are going to be hitting sportsbooks in short order.

So if you think Agent Orange is in for another “witch hunt” before the 2020 election, the odds Trump will be impeached – and become the first President to ever be impeached twice – should make for some compelling action.

Trump Removal Odds

The odds Trump will be removed from office were never that great to begin with, even during his impeachment proceedings of 2019-2020. Given GOP control of the Senate, the House impeachment was a token gesture and political play at most, and bettors never took the bait (even as the media and Democrats went all-in).

When new impeachments odds hit, you can expect to get Trump removal odds to wager on, but the closest thing right now is this line from Bovada:

Will Trump Complete His First Term?

  • Yes -900*
  • No +500*

*(Odds from Jan. 2020)

Trump Resignation Odds

The odds Trump will resign are practically nil. These were available for a hot minute at offshore betting sites when the President was first impeached, but they fizzled almost immediately. After all, given POTUS’ brusque demeanor and famously thick skin (he actually enjoys bad press!), it is unlikely that you’d ever see a good payout on the odds Trump will resign.

President Donald Trump’s Running Policies

Policy IconTrump’s 2020 Presidential campaign bounces off a lot of ideas presented during his 2016 campaign. Trump is still railing against illegal immigration and globalism while promising legislation and executive actions to improve the economy, create more jobs, and install stronger foreign policies.

For 2020, his slogan has changed from “Make America Great Again” to “Keep America Great”. These platforms worked well in 2016, and his greater focus on economic recovery should only increase the odds of Trump being re-elected this time around.

President Donald Trump’s Previous Policies

Policy IconAs President, Trump in 2017 withdrew the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, signed the Executive Order for Border Security and Immigration Enforcement improvements, signed the Executive Order on Core Principles for Regulating the United States Financial System, and signed the Congressional Review Act, the Elder Abuse Prevention and Prosecution Act, the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, and the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017.

In 2018, Trump signed the Farm Bill, as well as the Amy, Vicky, and Andy Child Pornography Victim Assistance Act of 2018. Trump signed several other bills into law, most of which can be found through the Donald Trump 2020 campaign site.


Experience IconTrump’s working career began after graduating from college when he went from working at his mother’s company, Elizabeth Trump & Sons, to becoming the owner of it in 1972. He renamed his mother’s business the Trump Organization. In 1983, Trump opened the Trump Tower in Manhattan.

Several years later in 1987, Trump released a book he co-authored with Tony Schwartz called Trump: The Art of The Deal. Then in 1989, Hasbro & Parker Brothers released Trump: The Game. In 1992, Trump opened three casinos.

In 1995, Trump Hotel and Casino Resorts went public on the NYSE. In 1999, Trump launched Trump Model Management. In 2004, Trump hosted the NBC show The Apprentice. And of course, in 2016, Trump ran for President on the Republican ticket and won.


Education IconTrump enrolled at Fordham University in 1964. After two years, Trump transferred to Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania where he graduated in 1968 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics with a concentration in Real Estate.

Civic Work

Donald Trump, through the course of his career, has won numerous awards for his charitable and humanitarian pursuits. While often overlooked, some of the most noteworthy Trump honors include:

  • Humanitarian Award, National Jewish Health (1976)
  • Tree of Life Award, Jewish National Fund (1983)
  • Ellis Island Medal of Honor (1986)
  • President’s Medal, Freedom Foundation (1995)
  • Muhammad Ali Entrepreneur Award (2007)
  • Unicorn Children’s Foundation Shining Star Award (2008)
  • Presidential Hero Award, Lois Pope LIFE Foundation (2011)
  • The Algemeiner Liberty Award (2015)
  • Wounded Warrior Project Award (2018)
  • Bipartisan Justice Award (2019)

President Trump’s Views on Gambling

Gambling IconTrump has very public financial ties to Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino mogul that is known to contribute to the Republican party and anti-gambling lawmakers. In fact, Trump and his family have met with Adelson’s family in Las Vegas multiple times for dinner.

While Adelson is known to push an anti-gambling expansion agenda to prevent any cannibalization in his market of land-based venues, Trump has a history of favoring casinos, as he was a former casino owner and he is friends with many other owners in the industry.

However, Trump is tough on any gamblers working in his cabinet, as his personal assistant John McEntee was denied permanent security clearance from the White House due to “problems related to online gambling and the mishandling of his taxes,” said one Senior Administrator. Overall, we view Trump to be in favor of expanded gambling, at least more so than the GOP generally is.

How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Trump 2020 Election Odds?

Since Trump has low odds to win the 2020 presidency, huge payouts can be collected on him if he wins. Depending on the sportsbook, the odds that Trump will be reelected sit between +100 and +145.

This means, at between +100 and +145 odds, a wager of $100 would earn between $100-$425, depending on which sportsbook you choose to wager with. That’s why it pays to belong to more than one sportsbooks so that bettors have the opportunity to shop the odds for the best payout.

Top 5 Reasons Donald Trump’s Chances Of Winning in 2020 Are Real

  1. Trump is the incumbent. Sitting presidents fare better in re-election compared to challengers.
  2. Trump is not a career politician. The idea that America needed a businessman instead of a politician was prominent during Trump’s successful 2016 campaign, and with the current COVID economy, that’s rings all the truer today.
  3. Democrats have different viewpoints from one another. Without a party consensus, Republican Trump could retain office since his stances are well-known.
  4. The economy needs help right now. Strong economies are key factors for voters reelecting an incumbent, though Trump will likely get a pass since the current stock market crash and jobless rates are due to state policies and not federal policies during the coronavirus pandemic.
  5. America is becoming accustomed to Trump. Although some of Trump’s actions earn him backlash, he doesn’t seem as outrageous as he once did. His 2016 railings against the manufacturing influence of China has been borne out in a big way during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well.

How did Trump win the election?

Trump won the 2016 Presidential election by winning more electoral votes than his opponent, Hillary Clinton. The final tally was 304-227. While Clinton won the popular vote, she neglected to campaign in swing states and lost several that she thought was “in the bag.” Hillary’s campaign was the most expensive in US history, while Trump’s was the least expensive in several cycles.

What was the Dow When Trump was elected?

The day Trump was elected on November 8, 2016, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 18,332.74. The next day, the Dow gained 312 points, closing at 18,613.52. As of May 15, 2020, the Dow sits at 23,649.76, due entirely to the effects of the coronavirus. Ironically, Trump should be able to use this as a strength come November.

What are the odds of Trump being reelected?

The odds of Trump winning in 2020 are not good, with his chances sitting between +100 and +145 depending on the sportsbook you choose. His polling numbers are also low, and he’s struggling to gain public support of his Presidency following the coronvirus-related US fallout.

What are the chances Trump cancels election proceedings for 2020?

While many mainstream media pundits and Democratic politicians have spent countless hours warning that “Dictator Donald” would use the coronavirus to declare martial law and cancel the November Presidential election, that is unlikely to happen. However, you can get odds on whether or not the election will be delayed by COVID-19 at some sportsbooks.

Can you bet on Trump lies?

While some books might offer these kinds of props, they are subjective in nature, and are thus problematic. Most sports betting sites offering Trump odds will not host such lines, and we don’t recommend risking any cash on subjective outcomes.

Are there Trump Nobel Peace Prize odds?

Currently, no. However, there were at one time. When Trump initiated nuclear disarmament talks with “Little Rocket Man” Kim Jong Un of North Korea, sportsbooks offered Nobel odds for The Donald.
