Trump's Director Of Social Media Tweets Fake Irma Video Of Miami Airport Flooding - Only For The Airport Themselves To Correct Him

The White House director of social media Dan Scavino Jr. tweeted out inaccurate information on Sunday in relation to Hurricane Irma.

The 41-year-old Republican, who also serves as an assistant to President Donald Trump, shared a video on Twitter claiming it was Miami International Airport flooded.

He wrote: 'Sharing #HurricaneIrma on social media with President @realDonaldTrump & @VP Pence hourly. Here is Miami International Airport. STAY SAFE!!'

However, he was wrong and the airport's official Twitter account called him out.  'This video is not from Miami International Airport,' the airport's official Twitter account fired back at Scavino in response to the video.

Scavino later deleted the post and wrote a follow-up tweet.

'Thank you. It was among 100s of videos/pics I am receiving re: Irma from public. In trying to notify all, I shared - have deleted. Be safe!' Scavino tweeted.

The airport replied, 'Thanks Dan.'
