Your links are broken.

The title of your post makes me think that is a good thing.

No trans jokes. It's a parody of Trump. I have no idea why they used a name that is often used as slur for trans women, but it seems to be a coincidence.

Trump + Rap = Trap?

...That seems to be the case. The obvious case. Which I still missed despite it being so obvious.

I blame sleep deprivation.

Almost. It's トランプ Torampu minus the ン -m-, suggesting Rappu = rap.

I'm pretty sure 'trap' as slang is purely American, derived from 4chan's boards (and showing all the nuance and sensitivity you'd expect from that origin). I would be very surprised if most manga authors from Japan knew very much American English internet slang at all, so it's almost certainly a pure unfortunate coincidence.

Japan has its own terms for cross-dressing, effeminacy, and transgender people, many of which are just as unfortunate in their own ways, but there's not much overlap.

Links are broken for me as well. You don't have them uploaded on a locked forum or something that requires a log-in, do you?
