Members of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign are referring to the cheers of Republican candidate Donald Trump supporters as a bunch of “angry white guy” chants, newly-leaked emails reveal.

The revelation comes from a trove of several thousand emails released by the online hacktivist group Wikileaks over the past week. In the email, Clinton media director Oren Shur suggests that the campaign hand out lots of tiny American flags to a diverse crowd in order to provide a contrast with the “angry white” vibe of Trump rallies.

“Just a thought … in the Miami speech, the diverse crowd behind HRC holding the little American flags was very cool – and at one point, a small U-S-A chant broke out, ” Shur says. “Maybe something like this is already in works, but wonder if tomorrow night, we should be more purposeful about generating the U-S-A, U-S-A chants during her riff about the need for togetherness and unity (assuming that’s still part of the speech), with people holding the little American flags – since that’s what America is really about. Would be a subtle, yet powerful, contrast to the angry white guy U-S-A chants at Trump events when he spews un-American hate talk.”

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook responded only with “I really like that.”
