Trump displays altered weather map showing Dorian could have hit Alabama

(WSIL) — President Trump is doubling down on his claim that Dorian was expected to hit Alabama. This, after he was questioned Wednesday about what appears to be an altered map he claims showed Hurricane Dorian’s original projected path.

He presented the map during a White House press event Wednesday, but the image appears to have been altered by someone using a black marker. The black marker appears to have been used to draw a semicircle to include the state of Alabama (as shown in the red circle below).

The reason that is significant is because on Sunday, the president falsely tweeted that Dorian was projected to hit Alabama.
