Trump Shows Dorian Cone Map With Alabama Altered?
TRUMP APPEARS TO SHOW ALTERED MAP SHOWING HURRICANE DORIAN IMPACTING ALABAMA
(CNN) – President Trump showed a map Wednesday he said shows hurricane Dorian’s original projected path.
But the image appeared to have been altered by a black marker; perhaps in order to support Trump’s incorrect tweet.
It showed Dorian hitting the state of Alabama, something trump tweeted about Sunday.
The National Weather Service corrected him, saying Alabama was never included in the states expected to see impacts.
Those states included Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
Trump told reporters that he wasn’t aware of a map being changed, but he was insistent that original forecasts showed Alabama being at risk.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
