President Donald Trump on Monday singled out ABC News' Jonathan Karl for reporting his warning over the weekend that Alabama could be hit by Hurricane Dorian.

"Such a phony hurricane report by lightweight reporter @jonkarl of @ABCWorldNews,” Trump tweeted of the network's chief White House correspondent.

"I suggested yesterday at [the Federal Emergency Management Agency] that, along with Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, even Alabama could possibly come into play, which WAS true."

"They made a big deal about this when in fact, under certain original scenarios, it was in fact correct that Alabama could have received some 'hurt.' Always good to be prepared! But the Fake News is only interested in demeaning and belittling. Didn't play my whole sentence or statement. Bad people!" he added.

Dorian, which hit the Bahamas as a Category 4 hurricane, is headed toward the southern United States.

Trump on Sunday tweeted that Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama would "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

The National Weather Service later tweeted a response.

"Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian," it said. "We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east."
