Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein on Friday poked fun at the Trump administration's plans to focus on infrastructure this week, which were overshadowed by fallout over former FBI Director James Comey's dramatic testimony on Capitol Hill.

"Just landed from China, trying to catch up.... How did 'infrastructure week' go?" Blankfein tweeted. 

The Goldman Sachs CEO has jabbed at Trump before. In joining Twitter earlier this month, Blankfein used his first message posted to the social media platform to rip Trump's decision to withdraw from the international Paris climate accord.

The White House's self-declared "infrastructure week" this week was overshadowed by Comey's gripping testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, where he accused Trump's administration of lying about him and the FBI.
 
Even before Comey appeared before lawmakers, Comey confirmed several reports in a pre-written congressional statement released Wednesday detailing his past interactions with Trump that he said bothered him and that many have criticized as inappropriate. 
 
The administration's weekly infrastructure initiative, which was aimed at ginning up support for Trump's $1 trillion rebuilding proposal, was drowned out by various feuds Trump had ignited on social media. 
 
The fallout over one tweet unrelated to Comey – in which Trump took credit for several Arab nations moving to cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, a major U.S. military partner in the Persian Gulf region – dragged on through Friday
 
Trump also escalated his feud with Comey on Friday during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden, where he accused the fired FBI chief of lying to Congress about his conversations with him.
 
The president said during the press conference that he is "100 percent" willing to testify under oath to rebut Comey's testimony, in which the former FBI chief said Trump asked for his loyalty and seemingly directed him to drop an investigation into his first national security adviser Michael Flynn.
