Washington - President Donald Trump says it's "bothersome" that the man investigating possible ties between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia is good friends with fired FBI director James Comey.

Trump told Fox and Friends in an interview to be broadcast on Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller was "very, very good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome".

Comey was overseeing the investigation until Trump fired him last month out of frustration with the inquiry.

Mueller and Comey worked together at the Justice Department in the Bush administration.
