"Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the awful job he did-until he was, in fact, fired", Trump wrote on Twitter.
Everyone is remarking on how Trump appears to be emotionally melting down, now that news organizations are widely covering Comey's new book. His virulent attack reflected months of simmering anger against a career law enforcement bureaucrat who has emerged as one of his fiercest opponents.
In an excerpt shown on Saturday, Mr Comey says his belief that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election was a factor in his decision to disclose the investigation into her emails.
Trump has denied any such collusion and reportedly has considered firing Mueller, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein out of anger over the probe.

Also in the book, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls Trump's leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty". Comey said Trump was most fixated on the allegations about the prostitutes and said that Trump later asked him if he could investigate those claims. Moscow has repeatedly denied USA intelligence agencies' findings that it interfered in the campaign to try to tilt the November 2016 vote in Trump's favor. Comey told the outgoing president that he would brief Trump on the salacious details of the so-called Steele dossier.
Comey describes Trump as having been obsessed with the portion dealing with prostitutes in the infamous dossier compiled by British former intelligence officer Christopher Steele, raising it at least four times with the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
Trump fired Comey in May 2017 in an act that has been under scrutiny by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
CNN reports that Republicans will argue that Comey overstepped his boundaries - a reference in part to his decision to announce at a July 2016 news conference that he had closed the probe into Clinton while also strongly criticizing her. Republicans, then, will cite Comey's handling of the Clinton investigation, and Democratic criticism of it, as reasons that we should question Comey's credibility. "He mentioned a number of women, and seemed to have memorized their allegations", Comey writes. "Really weird. It was nearly an out of body experience for me". His interview with ABC is set to air on Sunday. "I don't really know the guy". "It's possible, but I don't know".
Before Trump and Comey met alone, US intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and his advisers on Russia's election meddling.
"I have been very loyal to you, very loyal, " Trump told him, according to the book.
