US President Donald Trump has hurled insults at former FBI director James Comey, challenging accusations made against him in Mr Comey’s upcoming tell-all book.

The latest tirade, which lasted an hour, included the President declaring that Comey “will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!”

Mr Trump made further comments stating that, “I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty. I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His ‘memos’ are self-serving and FAKE!”

The feud between the two has continued to escalate over the past week via social media, however the sharp comments made by Mr Trump arose only hours before Mr Comey was due to make his first major media appearance since being fired by the President last year.

Details from Mr Comey’s book were also leaked on Thursday, with excerpts describing Mr Trump as “unethical and untethered to the truth.”

Mr Comey’s book is set for release this week.
