Leaked Trump campaign documents detail minority outreach strategy



Following his successful outreach to Black voters over the past two weeks,

Donald Trump is planning similar approaches to other minority groups in order to win them over, according to documents obtained by the Huffington Post.

The documents, prepared by campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, reflect the campaign’s belief that Trump can appeal to skeptical voters in minority groups, who have been reluctant to support him, through carefully-orchestrated outreach appeals.

Trump will spend two weeks each from now until the election working with individual minority group, according to the documents, which were given by an individual associated with the higher echelons of the Trump campaign. The new strategy is dubbed 24U, as in “Two [Weeks] For You.”

After his Black outreach program ends this week, which featured the candidate attending services at Black churches and eating soul food, Trump’s will target the LGBT community, where his standing has been low. Other minority communities targeted include Mexicans, the disabled, and low-energy voters.

Here are details from the documents:

The LGBT community: Conway, the campaign manager, argued that “queers” constitute a potentially powerful voting block for Trump. The documents reveal in-house squabbling over whether LGBT people should be treated as one community (and thus get two full weeks of attention), or whether they are four separate communities. Campaign CEO Stephen Bannon, who has dated transsexuals, argued for a single community; Conway argued for four communities, and apparently won. Under the scheme, Lesbians will get Trump’s attention for 5 days, gay men for 5 days, bisexuals for 3 days, and transgendered people for 1 day.

Conway will be reaching out to her fellow Lesbians to set up events in cities such as San Francisco and New York.

Trump’s wife, Melania, will play a “pivotal role” in reaching out to the bisexual community, where she was well-known in the early 2000s, according to the documents.

Meanwhile, the nation’s most famous transgendered Republican, Caitlin Jenner, will spearhead efforts in the Tranny community.


The ambassador for gay men has not yet been selected, but one possibility is Scott Baio, the papers said.

Trump also has been working with former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani on how to increase his popularity with drag queens.

Disabled people constitute another 24U target group. Following Trump’s mocking of disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a congenital joint disorder, the campaign has planned two weeks of outreach to “cripples,” according to the leaked documents.


Trump will participate in a Paralympic wheelchair basketball session scheduled for October at New York’s Riker’s Island. A suggestion by campaign co-manager Paul Manafort, in which Trump would live in a cardboard box for several days in Times Square in order to appeal to homeless people, was eventually rejected. “Homeless people don’t vote,” a campaign insider told the Huffington Post.

Low-energy voters were turned off by Trump’s mocking of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush during the primaries.


According to the documents, there are approximately 50 million low-energy voters in the U.S., making them a key target group. The campaign’s strategy is for Trump to triple the amount of Xanax he normally takes on a daily basis, in order to make him appear somnolent. “Low-energy voters will love it when they see Mr. Trump nodding off during speeches,” said one campaign insider, who asked not to be identified because she was not authorized to speak to the media.

Trump’s outreach to Mexican-Americans will be centered around his love of their culture. The plan calls for him to drive a taco truck. The leaked documents show that he wanted to use the Pink Floyd song, Another Brick in the Wall, as his Mexican outreach song, but the band would not allow it. Instead, the Trump theme song will be La Cucaracha.

  1. Absolutely outstanding! Borowitz, watch out, somebody might be gaining on you.

  2. Thanks Bob R as always!

  3. I can’t tell if this was supposed to be satire or not.
    Are there any links to said documents online?

  4. Chris, you have to look at the Category. If it’s marked “Politics” it’s straight reporting, and will include links. If it’s marked “Comedy/Satire”, that’s what it is. Although I admit that sometimes the line between them can be blurry.

  5. Ah, I see it now.
    FYI – I saw this originally at Huff. Post, and it does not clarify at all that this was a satire piece.

    It light of this, very funny. And you’re right about the blurred lines… Have of those comments I can actually see Trump making.

  6. If you look right under the headline, you’ll see:
