Online Sportsbooks Think Donald Trump Will Miss Joe Biden’s Inauguration And Play Golf

A President skipping an inauguration isn’t a completely new thing in the US, however, it’s also not that common, as Donald Trump will likely become the 4th president in history to boycott his successors ceremony.

Martin Van Buren, Woodrow Wilson and Richard Nixon are the three other presidents who haven’t been present at inaugurations.

It’s pretty clear that Donald Trump won’t be featuring at Joe Biden’s celebration in Washington on Wednesday. Online sportsbooks only make it a 3.33% chance that Donald Trump will attend the inauguration.

With Donald Trump likely to be skipping Joe Biden’s big day, online sportsbooks have been busy predicting exactly what Trump will do instead.

The sportsbooks favorite in the betting market is, that Donald Trump will actually be on the golf course. Online sports betting sites have Donald Trump’s odds to be playing golf during Joe Biden’s inauguration at -200, which implies there’s a 67% chance of this happening.

The other options in the betting market are a little more novel, and slightly less realistic. According to one UK sportsbook, there’s a 14.3% chance Donald Trump skips Joe Biden’s Inauguration because he’s tanning.

At slightly longer odds, but still a relatively amusing option, is that Donald Trump will skip Wednesday because he’ll be on the phone with his old friend Kim Jong-un.
