President’s director of social media, Dan Scavino, claimed video showed flooded Miami runway but airport quickly corrected him
Hurricane Irma has left a trial of death and destruction across the Caribbean and battered Florida with 130mph winds. What it hasn’t done is left planes trying to navigate a waterlogged runway at Miami international airport – as Donald Trump’s director of social media tweeted on Sunday night.
As the sunshine state took shelter from the superstorm, Dan Scavino shared a video of a flooded airport saying: “Here is Miami International Airport. STAY SAFE!!”, tagging both the president’s and the vice president’s official Twitter accounts.
