J.K. Rowling, the author of the best-selling “Harry Potter” series, has become one of Donald Trump’s latest critics after he called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”
“How horrible,” Rowling tweeted Tuesday with a link to Trump’s statement. “Voldemort was nowhere near as bad.”
Voldemort is also referred to as “The Dark Wizard” and many consider him one of the biggest villains of all. After all, his mission is to rid the wizarding world of non-magical Muggles, and to kill the beloved hero Harry Potter.
On Tuesday, Trump doubled down on his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., telling multiple morning shows he is more concerned with protecting the U.S. than being politically correct.
“You’re going to have many more World Trade Centers,” Trump told CNN’s Chris Cuomo regarding the need to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. until our current leaders figure out how to solve the problem of radical Islamist terrorism.
The GOP candidate’s increasingly aggressive rhetoric has drawn a sharp response, both from his Republican rivals as well as Democrats.
“But you know what Trump’s saying: ‘They’re thinking about it’ [Laughs]. And he wants to close down mosques now. That’s like the Nazis,” Lee said. “That’s like Hitler, Mussolini, the Axis Powers. You can’t do that!”
