Trump Bounces Back With Bets Boost

DESPITE suffering a setback in Wisconsin, political punters are still backing Donald Trump to become US President, and bookmakers William Hill have cut his odds from 5/1 (stake 1 for profit of 5) to 9/2 (stake 2 for profit of 9) after taking a string of bets for him, including one of 9000 Hong Kong dollars (approx £821).
