Patti Davis, the youngest daughter of Ronald Reagan, says President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey is a blow to America's freedoms.

"With each step, Donald Trump is bringing us closer to a dictatorship," Davis wrote Wednesday on her Facebook page.

It's Davis' latest salvo against Trump this week.

On Monday, commenting about the removal of researchers from the Environmental Protection Agency's Science Review Board, Davis wrote, "This planet is not going to survive the Trump administration. I pray for impeachment."

And a day earlier, she wrote on her book promotion website, "Nothing seems immune to Mr. Trump's need for demolition, even national monuments which have been protected for generations.

"Our already wounded planet may never survive this administration. At night, America lies awake frightened of the future. What will happen to us? What will happen to our children?"

Davis, a liberal who often disagreed with her father's conservative views, has also taken on the Trump administration's goal of repealing the Affordable Care Act.

"In these health-challenged times, will we remember who we are, and where the moral high ground is, or will we be eroded by an administration that sees destructiveness as an emblem of power?" she asked.

Davis, a novelist, biographer and former Playboy pinup, is the younger half-sister of Maureen Reagan and Newsmax contributor Michael Reagan. She was also critical of Trump during the 2016 presidential race.

Last August, she ripped the billionaire businessman for comments he made at a North Carolina rally about "Second Amendment people" — which some interpreted as a call for gun owners to attack Hillary Clinton.

"I am the daughter of a man who was shot by someone who got his inspiration from a movie, someone who believed if he killed the president, the actress from that movie would notice him," Davis said, referring to John Hinckley's failed assassination attempt on her father to impress actress Jodie Foster.

"Your glib and horrifying comment about 'Second Amendment people' was heard around the world. It was heard by sane and decent people who shudder at your fondness for verbal violence. It was heard by your supporters, many of whom gleefully and angrily yell, 'Lock her up!' at your rallies.

"It was heard by the person sitting alone in a room, locked in his own dark fantasies, who sees unbridled violence as a way to make his mark in the world and is just looking for ideas."
