If anyone is good at putting masses and masses of people offside it really is Donald Trump. Trump made a comment around the need for the U.S to temporarily ban all Muslims (bar athletes and diplomats) from entering the country until regulators can work out what is going on. He has, not surprisingly, received serious backlash over his comments, even from the likes of Muhammad Ali (you know, former boxing world champion), who responded: “I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam.”.
Of all the responses though, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling must take the cake. After many people were likening Trump to the villain in her novels, Voldemort – Rowling crafted a simply bad-ass response;
How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad. https://t.co/hFO0XmOpPH

Rowling has created a reputation for her ingenious responses on Twitter, and of course this one did not disappoint, no matter what side of the controversial fence you sit on.
