As Hurricane Dorian moves closer to Florida, a former prime minister of Canada is rooting for a direct hit on densely populated South Florida, all to spite President Trump.

Kim Campbell, who served as the 19th Canadian prime minister for less than five months in 1993, tweeted that she is “rooting” for Trump’s favorite getaway destination to take a direct hit.
I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago! https://t.co/cA14KQvjpC

Campbell was not alone among Twitter users in hoping the hurricane hurts Trump in some way. Some claimed the hurricane’s trajectory is the result of Trump’s climate change denial, or that he canceled his trip to Poland out of fear for Mar-a-Lago’s well-being.
If it hits Mar a Lago, Trump will be pissed they wouldn’t let him nuke the hurricane. https://t.co/y3LaUnB7bJ

Hurricane Dorian is poised to hit Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago club, so the president has canceled his trip to Poland.

Trump: Climate change is a hoax.

Trump announced Thursday that instead of visiting the European nation he will instead send Vice President Mike Pence while he monitors the storm and subsequent cleanup efforts.
“To ensure that all resources of the federal government are focused on the arriving storm, I have decided to send our Vice President Mike Pence to Poland this weekend in my place. It’s something very important for me to be here,” he said.
