J.K. Rowling Reacts to Donald Trump Being Called Lord Voldemort

Find out what the 'Harry Potter' author says after learning of the comparison between the Republican presidential candidate and He Who Must Not Be Named.

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.

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'."
