2018 could well be the year that hell freezes over because online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has cut the odds of a similar feat occurring – Donald Trump meeting face to face with Kim Jong-un.
The odds before the recent talks held between the North and South Koreans was previously $51 but is now considered a $21 chance following the softening of tensions.
Kim Jong-un taking a trip to the White House is still unlikely at odds of $67 while Trump holding talks in North Korea is seen slightly more likely at $31.
“It’s a new year so maybe they’re both thinking let bygones be bygones but don’t be surprised to see the odds rocket back out following any of Trump’s upcoming tweets,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
