In addition to Florida - South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, will most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated. Looking like one of the largest hurricanes ever. Already category 5. BE CAREFUL! GOD BLESS EVERYONE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 1, 2019
On Fri., Trump got a briefing on Dorian and was shown this projected path (left).— Steve Kopack (@SteveKopack) September 4, 2019
On Sun., Trump tweeted Ala. would be among states "most likely [to] be hit" (NWS said that wasn't correct)
Today, Trump showed the same map — but looks like someone added Alabama to the track. pic.twitter.com/whxM7iaxtL
CNN has obtained the message from a National Weather Service Sept 1 email that was sent to NWS staffers after Trump’s Alabama tweet and the Birmingham NWS tweet. It advised staff “should not provide any opinion about the national level posts...” pic.twitter.com/Kz2fcrG0mM— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) September 8, 2019
The Tweet should have been corrected, adjusted or deleted to assure folks in Alabama that Dorian was out of range.— Ryan Maue (@RyanMaue) September 5, 2019
Trump is still going -- and a major hurricane is about to make landfall in the Carolinas.
This is nauseating b/c it obfuscates the great work being done.
