An Irish betting firm is anticipating a lot of wagers on US President Donald Trump.

So much so that Paddy Power Betfair is looking for a 'Head of Trump Betting'.

In a job description posted on jobs site LinkedIn, it says: "We want to make American politics great again. Because, let’s face it, there's no chance Trump will.

"Following the huge demand on the back of the 2016 US presidential elections, we are looking for a Head of Trump Betting to manage our newly launched 'hub' of specials around the president.

"We're looking for a marriage of more convenience than Donald's to Melania."

It says there will be more than 100 special bets online.

"You must combine a passion for the topical news agenda with a keen interest in US Politics and an ability to think outside the box.

"Mind you, any suggestions to pay out early on an election will be shot down faster than a good journalist asking Trump a difficult question", it adds.

The job is being offered on a three month contract - presumably no indication of Mr Trump's staying power.
