Hillary Clinton has a huge edge among female voters, according to polls. Trump invited three women who have made accusations against Bill Clinton to the second presidential debate.
To try to lower black voter turnout, the senior official said the GOP nominee and his campaign were citing Hillary Clinton's 1996 comments referring to some young black criminals as "superpredators."
Bloomberg reported that Trump's campaign on Oct. 24 started placing spots on select African-American radio stations to highlight the superpredators remark.
The Trump campaign is also delivering an animation involving Clinton's superpredator line to certain African-Americans on Facebook through campaign-targeted "dark posts" that are not public, Bloomberg reported.
"It will dramatically affect her ability to turn these people out,” the official said, referring to the three groups.
Another official for Trump rejected the idea that Trump's campaign is focused on suppressing any voters during an interview on MSNBC.
"We're about on our Facebook Live post about energizing our folks," said Cliff Sims, a communications adviser to Trump.
Sims serves as the host of Trump's nightly Facebook live broadcasts, which began on Monday.
