Trump Lashes Out At Media For Calling Out His False Claim Dorian Would Hit Alabama




President Trump on Monday night blasted ABC News after the network reported that he falsely claimed that Hurricane Dorian was expected to hit Alabama.

“Such a phony hurricane report by lightweight reporter @jonkarl of @ABCWorldNews,” Trump tweeted, targeting the network’s chief White House correspondent Jon Karl.

“I suggested yesterday at [Federal Emergency Management Agency] that, along with Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, even Alabama could possibly come into play, which WAS true,” Trump added.



He continued: “They made a big deal about this when in fact, under certain original scenarios, it was in fact correct that Alabama could have received some ‘hurt.’ Always good to be prepared! But the Fake News is only interested in demeaning and belittling. Didn’t play my whole sentence or statement. Bad people!”

Trump on Sunday tweeted that Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia and Alabama would “most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated.”

He also told reporters at the White House that “Alabama is going to get a piece” of the storm.

About 20 minutes after Trump tweeted his warning to Alabama residents, the National Weather Service tweeted a response debunking Trump’s claim.




“Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian,” the agency tweeted. “We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east.”
