Trump calls Comey 'slime ball' over new critical book

US President Donald Trump called James Comey a 'weak and untruthful slime ball', reacting to news accounts that cite the fired former FBI director as searingly critical of the president in a memoir due to be published next week.

    The White House has dismissed former FBI Director James Comey's new book - which is critical of US President Donald Trump - as a poorly executed PR stunt.

    Trump fired Comey last May while his agency was investigating possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from the White House.
