The bomber was flying as part of an air show. There is no evidence it was for anything else.
The Twitter video, which shows a B-2 bomber flying over a breach, claims that the missile defenses are being moved to locations on the west coast and implies the bomber is part of this.
This claim is highly misleading. Through a reverse image search, Check Your Fact found that the video is from the Hyundai Air and Sea Show. A tweet from the event shows the B-2 bomber flying over Miami as part of the air show.
