FBI Director Christopher Wray reportedly defended the agency and assured staffers it is "an honor to represent you" a day after President Donald Trump derided the FBI's standing as the "worst in history" and in "tatters."

In an email to the FBI's 35,000 agents and support staff, Wray said he was "inspired by example after example of professionalism and dedication to justice demonstrated around the bureau," The New York Times reported, saying it had obtained a copy of the message.

"It is truly an honor to represent you," he wrote.

Wray, who has been on the job for about four months, also told his staff to ignore any criticism and to continue to uphold the Constitution.

"We find ourselves under the microscope each and every day — and rightfully so. We do hard work for a living," he said, adding the FBI should "continue to keep focused on our critical mission," the Times reported.

According to the Times, the email ends with a favorite maxim of Wray's: "Keep calm and tackle hard."

There was no mention of the president.

Trump bashed the agency Sunday in a Twitter tirade bemoaning the treatment of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, and comparing Flynn's case to the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information, in which she was not charged after an FBI interview.
