Stalking horse or Trojan horse?

Editor of the Reformer:

For some time, my theory has been that Donald Trump is really a stalking horse for the Democrats to provide an opponent so egregious and repellent that even Hillary could win.

The problem is they were blind to the fact that because enough of the body politic is so fed up with the same corrupt political system that the Clintons personify that there is a reasonable chance that even someone as outrageous as Donald could be our next president.

If this happens, would their stalking horse then become the Democrats' (and ours) Trojan horse.
