Salena Zito: A Lot of People Who Didn’t Vote Trump Favor the Ban

In an appearance on CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning, the Washington Examiner’s Salena Zito said, “I did go out and drove around Pennsylvania and Ohio over the weekend, talked to a lot of people on the Amtrak train yesterday, from Pittsburgh to Washington, and there were a lot of people that did not vote for [Trump] who like the idea of the sort of stoppage, the pause.”

“They’re not particularly thrilled with the way that he did it. Nonetheless, they like the idea – they believe we need to do a better job of vetting,” Zito said.

Host Alisyn Camerota asked Zito how people responded to the fact that no refugees have been involved in a deadly terror attack.

Zito said people didn’t view the order as singling out any one group: “They don’t look at it as it’s targeting any one person … They look at it as a stop-gap way to check everyone.”

Zito earned praise during the election for her explanation of the Trump phenomenon in Rust Belt states.
