President Donald Trump took a shot at James Comey Friday amidst the former FBI Director’s ongoing media blitz to promote a new book detailing some of his interactions with the president.

Comey’s book details several accusations against Trump and maligned his personal character. The former FBI director claims among other things that the President asked him for a pledge of loyalty at a private dinner in the White House, which he likened to the behavior of a “mob boss.”

“This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values,” he writes in his book, adding “His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty.”

Comey also detailed his interactions with Trump after his election in which he briefed him about sexual allegations included in the salacious Fusion GPS dossier.
