Tuesday afternoon at 4:16 p.m. President Trump tweeted a message via video of an update from a briefing he had on the status of Hurricane Florence. The video is 1:12 seconds long.
President Trump: I received a briefing from secretary Nielsen, administrator Long, and my senior staff regarding Hurricane Florence, and other tropical systems that will soon impact the United States and its territories. The safety of American people is my absolute highest priority, we are sparing no expense, we are totally prepared, we’re ready. We’re as ready as anybody has ever been and it looks to me and it looks to–all of very talented people that do this for a living, like this is going to be a storm that’s going to be a very large one. Far larger than we’ve seen in perhaps decades. Things can change, but we doubt they will at this stage, pretty late stage, we doubt they are going be very-very far off course. The places that are in the way and in the most jeopardy we be Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and that area, and again they haven’t seen anything like what’s coming at us in twenty-five, thirty years, maybe ever.
President Trump tweeted at 8:19 p.m. a video taken from the Rose Garden where he is speaking about 9/11. The video is 1:18 seconds long.
President Trump: It’s September 11th, and as I stand on the really beautiful lawn of the Rose Garden at the White House, I think of the 3,000 lives lost with the horrible attack on New York City, the World Trade center, and indeed the attack on our nation. When I speak of the World Trade Center, I speak as a New Yorker, but I also think as not only a New Yorker, but as an American of the Pentagon and all the lives lost, and also, I just left, Shanksville, Pennsylvania an incredible place and these were really great great hero’s that fought so hard that the plane didn’t do damage to the either the White House or the Capital, or wherever it was headed, so whether it’s Shaksville, or the Pentagon, or the World Trade Center, these were 3,000 incredible people. We will never let this happen again.
President Trump tweeted out two tweets the first at 9:16 p.m. the second at 9:28 p.m. The two tweets are one quote from Harvard law professor Alan Deshowitz.
It’s unclear in what context or when this quote was given, a search of Fox News, resulted in zero hits.
At 9:55 p.m. President Trump tweeted a quote from California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D) that he heard on Fox News.
On Saturday according to Real Clear Politics, Waters while receiving an award from the Stonewall Young Democrats in Los Angeles, said, in reference to Vice President Pence:
Waters: I had a conversation here today with someone asked, ‘Well, what about Pence? If you are able to impeach, Pence will be worse. You knock one down, one at a time. You knock one down, and we’ll be ready for Pence. We’ll get him, too
President Trump on Wednesday started his tweeting at 6:30 a.m. the first tweet was to quote Fox Business show host Lou Dobbs.
Like with the quote from Dershowitz it is unclear when this comment by Lou Dobbs was made.
At 6:51 a.m. after he quoted Lou Dobbs, he tweeted that the government, got “A pluses,” for “recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida.” He then adds in parentheses that the government also did an “unappreciated job in Puerto Rico,” calling the island “inaccessible.” He ends the tweet by saying, “We are ready for the big one that is coming.”
In the President’s next two tweets the first sent at 6:58 a.m. the second sent at 9:58 a.m. he talks about Hurricane Florence, and once again asks people to “Be safe!” He then explained that the path of Florence might “be dipping,” toward the south and hitting the “Great State of Georgia.”
At 11:35 a.m. National Hurricane Center tweeted part of the update for Hurricane Florence’s advisory to residents of the area, the full advisory can be found at nhc.noaa.gov.
At 10:06 a.m. President Trump tweeted another quote this time from Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC)
Chairman Burr according to the Washington Examiner told Fox News, “I can say as it relates to the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation that we have no hard evidence of collusion. Now, we’re not over. That leaves the opportunity that we might find something that we don’t have today.”
At 12:37 p.m. President Trump asked all those in Hurricane Florence’s path to “follow local evacuation orders.”
