President Donald Trump hopped onto Twitter Friday morning to fight back against media criticism, suggesting his surrogates cannot be accurate all the time because he is an "active president."

In a series of tweets, Trump said the "fake media is working overtime today" and wondered if he should cancel all future press briefings in the name of accuracy. Trump is taking criticism for conflicting narratives coming out of the White House over the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

He later tweeted that Comey should hope there were no tapes of their private conversations "before he starts leaking to the press."
