J.K. Rowling Criticizes Donald Trump on Twitter

By Maryann Yin 

Tom RiddleHave you been following the United States presidential race? Apparently, J.K. Rowling has.

Recently, reality TV star Donald Trump, who many consider to be the frontrunner for the Republican party nomination, has stirred up outrage for “calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

According to BuzzFeed, many Twitter users have posted messages comparing Trump to Lord Voldemort.

The Guardian reports that Rowling read a BBC News article on this issue and has now entered the discussion with a tweet of her own; she feels that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named “was nowhere near as bad” as Trump. Now the question remains on whether or not Rowling thinks Trump is comparable in his evil to the vicious Dolores Umbridge.
