Trump says all ‘will be thanking me’ for firing Comey
Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning that Comey had “lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike.” He added: “when things calm down, they will be thanking me!”
Trump abruptly fired Comey Tuesday night. The surprise decision came amid the law enforcement agency’s investigation into whether Trump’s presidential campaign was connected to Russian meddling in the election.
Donald Trump says fired FBI Director James Comey “will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI.”
In an early-morning tweet Wednesday, Trump attacked Democrats critical of his firing of Comey.
Trump said that Democrats “have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad!”
