Trump keeps defending wrong map of Hurricane Dorian’s path

Trouble is raining down on U.S. President Donald Trump, who appears to have given Americans incorrect information on Hurricane Dorian’s trajectory.

During an Oval Office press briefing on Wednesday, Mr. Trump displayed a map from the National Hurricane Center showing the storm’s predicted path.

As he held up the poster to give the journalists a better view, it became clear the map had been edited: Dorian’s cone had been extended with what appeared to be black marker to include the state of Alabama. It is against the law to falsify a National Weather Service forecast and pass it off as official.

When asked a few hours later about the surprising addition, Mr. Trump responded, “I don’t know. I don’t know,” while continuing to maintain that the predictions included the possibility that Dorian would make landfall in the southern state.
