The tweets come ahead of an interview Comey will give Sunday on ABC to promote his book, which includes a number of broadsides against Trump.

"Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!" Trump tweeted.

Comey compared Trump to a mob boss in his book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," writing that Trump sought loyalty “like Sammy the Bull’s Cosa Nostra induction ceremony,” a reference to the infamous mob boss. 

The former FBI director also writes that the president asked Comey to probe an alleged tape detailing one of the most salacious parts of the dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele. 

Trump in recent days has frequently attacked Comey. On Sunday, the president also referred to the former FBI director as a "slimeball" and said the "big questions in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered."
