In principal there is no reason why you should not use an electric bike to help with the effort needed to pull the trailer but I would like to emphasise the points made by cotterpin.

There are bikes which do have twist and go throttles but they are not legal for use on the public road as there are bikes with larger than 200w motors which again are not legal for use on the public roads. People selling that sort of bike tend to bury those facts deep in the small print.

When it comes to the legal bikes there is an immense difference in build quality, reliability and ride quality between the cheap stuff and the expensive stuff. If you do go down the electric route then spend a little time thinking about the bike you get and be prepared to pay £1500+ if you want something that will ride well and be easy to live with.
