ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Author Salena Zito says Facebook has removed her latest column published in the New York Post explaining Midwestern support for President Trump and how the latest legal troubles for Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort will not lessen those voters’ enthusiasm. 

The co-author of The Great Revolt and Washington Examiner columnist says that further strange activity from Facebook occurred when she attempted to re-post the article. 

Zito told the Washington Times that she never heard directly from Facebook after she discovered her post had “disappeared” but “after trying to contact them through several different ways, the story miraculously reappeared.” 

Zito says at least seven readers independently reached out to her to tell her that Facebook had removed posts they had written using the link to her New York Post article. 

The article in question relies on Zito’s first-hand interviews of Trump voters in several battleground states. She gauges their reasons for voting for Trump and their reaction to the recent stories that have captivated media outlets in Manhattan and DC: 

In the aftermath of Tuesday’s news that both former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his lawyer Michael Cohen were found on the wrong side of the law in separate court cases, the question asked most frequently by the press, Democrats and “Never Trump” Republicans is, “Where do Trump voters go now?”

The answer is the same that it has always been since they first started asking it Nov. 9, 2016: With Trump.

This new conservative populist coalition is not the fluke the political class hoped it was. Donald Trump did not cause it, he is just the result of it, so no matter what he does, it continues. It is predicated on them, not him.
