Strzok, 48, and his lover, former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, exchanged text messages during the 2016 election campaign which were critical of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Former agent Peter Strzok (struhk) was removed from Mueller's team a year ago after the text messages were discovered.
The FBI did not immediately comment on Mr Strzok's firing.
His texts were criticized by the Justice Department's inspector general in a recent report that examined the FBI's handling of the Clinton email probe.
The president also said his firing should mean that the probe into Hillary Clinton's email server - which Strzok oversaw - should be reopened.

The match had been played for 72 minutes, and the scoreline read 5-0, when it was called off and the senior side declared winners. After the game, fans at the game, who had come in their numbers to catch a glimpse of their new number 7, flooded onto the pitch.
Peter Strzok has been accused by Republicans of being biased against Donald Trump, and seeking to prevent his election victory.
Former FBI Director James Comey was sacked by Trump in May 2017 after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein helped pen a memo that was critical of how Comey handled the FBI's probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
Justice Department officials wrote Strzok's anti-Trump bias may have caused inaction following the discovery of Clinton emails on the laptop of disgraced Democrat New York Congressman Anthony Weiner in September 2016. His lawyer has said that had Strzok wanted to prevent Trump's election, he could have leaked that Trump's campaign was under investigation for possibly coordinating with Russian Federation - a revelation that might have upended his bid to become president.
During a June congressional hearing, FBI Director Christopher Wray said Strzok had been referred to the Office of Professional Responsibility - which he referred to as the bureau's "independent disciplinary arm" - and that officials would "not hesitate to hold people strictly accountable".
"The decision to fire Special Agent Strzok is not only a departure from typical Bureau practice, but also contradicts Director Wray's testimony to Congress and his assurances that the FBI meant to follow its regular process in this and all personnel matters", Goelman continued.
