Miami, September 3 (RHC)-- Hurricane Dorian spent most of the day Monday on top of the Bahamas, castigating the islands with winds up to 180 miles per hour before stalling over the region. It's now heading toward the U.S., picking up intensity in the hot waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
The storm made landfall as a Category 5 storm, but President Trump claimed over the weekend that he had never heard of Category 5. The U.S. has in fact been threatened by four Category 5 storms during Trump’s presidency. Trump also denied knowing what a Category 5 storm was in 2017, when Hurricane Irma struck Florida, and in 2018, when Hurricane Michael hit Florida.
Trump also caused confusion Sunday by falsely suggesting Alabama would be hit by Hurricane Dorian. His tweet — one of at least 122 he posted this weekend — was quickly denied by the National Weather Service. Trump spent the long weekend golfing at his club in Virginia despite the hurricane and the mass shooting in West Texas. Dorian is expected to continue its destructive path toward Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. We’ll have more on Hurricane Dorian later in the broadcast.
