President Donald Trump early Saturday said ABC chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross, who was suspended after a serious reporting error in December, should have been fired rather than being allowed to return to work.

"Brian Ross, the reporter who made a fraudulent live newscast about me that drove the Stock Market down 350 points (billions of dollars), was suspended for a month but is now back at ABC NEWS in a lower capacity," Trump said on Twitter. "He is no longer allowed to report on Trump. Should have been fired!"

According to CNN, Ross has kept his title after his four-week suspension. However, he'll start a new job at Lincoln Square Productions on Monday, where his focus will be on "long-term projects" and not breaking news reports.

In December, Ross reported that while Trump was still a presidential candidate, he asked then-campaign adviser Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. Hours later, the report was corrected to say Trump asked Flynn to reach out after he'd won the election.

Ross was suspended for four weeks without pay, and ABC News President James Goldston said Friday Ross will not cover Trump moving forward.
