Trump 2024 Odds Balloon As FBI Raid Ex-President’s Florida Home
Betting sites have rapidly inflated their Trump 2024 odds after the FBI raided the former president’s Mar-a-Lago home.
Trump is no longer the sole favourite to win the 2024 US election. Having cruised ahead of the competition for months, the majority of betting firms have now cut his chances of returning to the White House in two years’ time.
The shift comes in response to the FBI’s decision to raid Trump’s Florida home while he was in New York at the time of it.
Agents are understood to have served a warrant to search the luxurious property, which is connected to an investigation into Trump's handling of official papers.
It is claimed agents broke open a safe and that several boxes were taken away. Trump said in a statement: “These are dark times for our nation. Nothing like this has ever happened to a president of the United States before.”
The raid is understood to be in connection to a National Archives request to retrieve 15 boxes of papers from the White House. Trump, they claim, should have handed these over when he left office in 2021.
The agency claims the boxes contained “items marked as classified national security information” that Trump had no right to keep once his presidency had ended.
