James Comey was fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) earlier this week, as Donald Trump is doing his best to defend his decision. As the backlash continues, the president is venting his frustrations on Twitter.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election, the results sent shock-waves throughout the United States and around the world. Heading into Election Day, Hillary Clinton was leading in most polls, and it seemed as if the country would have its first female commander in chief.

However, just weeks before voters went to the polls, then FBI Director James Comey brought up the email and private server scandal dating back to Clinton's time as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama. Despite being cleared of any wrongdoing, Clinton was negatively impacted by Comey's actions, leading to a Trump victory. However, since the inauguration, Comey has been a negative for the White House as he's led the investigation into what role Russia played in the election and their potential link back to the administration. After Trump decided to fire Comey as head of the FBI, Democrats and the mainstream media have pushed back at the president, leading to a series of angry tweets on May 12.

Taking to his Twitter account on Friday morning, Donald Trump expressed his clear frustration with the media over their coverage of the James Comey firing.

"Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election," Trump tweeted out.

"The Fake Media is working overtime today!" Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

Not stopping there, the former host of "The Apprentice" then made a threat about the future of the traditional White House Press Briefings, only adding fuel to the fire as the rift between the commander and chief and the media appears to only be getting worse.

Trump's threat

"As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!" Donald Trump tweeted out with apparent anger. "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future ;press briefings; and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???" he added.

In his final tweet as of press time, Trump then sent a threat directly to James Comey.

"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!," he tweeted. The president's threat to end press briefings comes at an ironic time as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been rumored to be on the chopping block, with Sarah Huckabee Sanders waiting in the wings as his possible replacement.
