Breaking Point! Paddy Power prices Rex Tillerson as new favourite to leave the Trump cabinet

Updating its ‘Trump Betting Hub’, Paddy Power Politics has priced US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson at 4/11 favourite to be the ‘next member of Donald Trump’s cabinet to exit’ the administration.

Looked upon as the highest profile member of the Trump cabinet, US media reports that Tillerson’s relationship with Trump is currently at ‘breaking point’.

Last week, reports surfaced that an exasperated Tillerson had allegedly called Trump a ‘F**@ing Moron’ in front of senior officials during a heated exchange at The Pentagon.

Reacting to the speculation, Paddy Power Politics has priced former Exxon Mobil CEO as the favourite to leave the White House, ahead of Attorney General Jeff Sessions (current price – 11/4).

Furthermore, the bookmaker has opened a new ‘Tillerson Secretary of State’ market, placing odds of 1/3 that Rex will remain as the chief advisor for President Trump’s foreign policy.

Adding some extra spice to its US political markets, Paddy Power has further placed odds of 150/1 (less than 1% chance) that Tillerson confirms publically before the end of the year that he did indeed call President Trump a ‘moron’.
