President Donald Trump voted Wednesday morning to replace fired FBI chief James Comey with someone who will "do a better job" and bring back "the spirit and prestige of the FBI."

In a series of early-morning tweets, Trump said Comey had "lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike," adding that "when things calm down, they will be thanking me!"

Trump also slammed Democrats for criticizing Comey's dismissal now when they had criticized his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Trump abruptly fired Comey Tuesday night. The surprise decision came amid the law enforcement agency's investigation into whether Trump's presidential campaign was connected to Russian meddling in the election.
