Trump issued a tweet incorrectly that Alabama would be in a path of Hurricane Dorian. So, the White House showed a modified National Hurricane Center "cone of uncertainty" forecast; the graphic appears to have been altered with a marker to indicate a risk that the storm would move into Alabama from Florida. When asked about the altered hurricane forecast, he said there's a 95% chance probability that Alabama would be hit.
