AceShowbiz - J.K. Rowling speaks out after Donald Trump was called the real-life Lord Voldemort. The "Harry Potter" author thinks the Republican presidential candidate is worse that her fictional antagonist. "How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad," she tweeted.

Many people compare Trump to the "Harry Potter" villain infamous for his disdain towards Muggles or non-wizard after the politician said in his campaign that Muslims should be banned from America. His controversial statement came following deadly shootings by a Muslim couple at a health centre in San Bernardino.

A "total and complete shutdown" should remain "until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life," Trump said.
My theory is that Trump is Voldemort & if the media stops saying his name, Harry Potter will come destroy him. America will be great again.— Linds (@lindsaysmetanka) December 7, 2015
The only way to stop Donald Trump is to destroy his Horcruxes. The wig is definitely one. If you need me I'll be finding the other six.— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) December 7, 2015
@SethMacFarlane could you please do a family guy special with Donald Trump as Voldemort, his hairpiece beeing one of six horcruxes?— Frederic Müller (@FredAusOL) December 8, 2015
Hillary Clinton, Trump's rival from Democratic party, responded, "This is reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive. @RealDonaldTrump, you don't get it. This makes us less safe." Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) also condemned his statement, "This is not who we are as a party or a country."
During his early campaign, Donald Trump was also slammed for his immigration platform. His suggestion to build a "great wall" between the US and Mexico was mocked by many as he said, "We'll call it the 'Great Wall of Trump'."
