JK Rowling: Even Lord Voldemort Wasn’t As Bad As Donald Trump

December 8, 2015 11:22 a.m.

JK Rowling, the British author of the Harry Potter series, tweeted Tuesday that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was worse than her books’ evil villain, Lord Voldemort.

Rowling’s tweet came after Trump called for preventing all Muslims from entering the United States. The real estate mogul said Monday that he would like to institute a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslim immigration to the country.

Rowling commented on the situation with a link to an article from BBC Newsbeat:
