When fans said that Lord Voldemort was like Donald Trump, J.K. Rowling defended the antagonist in her books and disagreed with the fans.

Rowling tweeted 'How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere as bad' while she shared one tweet that goes 'This is why people are calling American businessman, Donald Trump, Lord Voldemort,' with a link to Trump recommending that Muslims be banned from America. Rowling has been known as someone quick to respond to tweets that involve characters from the Harry Potter books.

Lord Voldemort, an evil wizard, was the main antagonist in Rowling's 7-part book series which was later adapted to 8 movie sequels. He was known to dislike people who are incapable of using magic. This is perhaps the reason why he is being attributed to anyone who has an unfounded hatred for a specific group of people. In the film, he was portrayed by English actor Ralph Fiennes.

One of the reasons why Donald Trump was compared to Lord Voldemort was when he suggested that all Muslims be prohibited from entering the US. Trump advised that there should be a complete shutdown until the American government is able to figure out if Muslims pose a threat to the country. He mentioned this in in one of his campaigns and even repeated such suggestion at a rally in South Carolina where his supports loudly cheered him after he made such remark.

'Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. 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.

The remark was made due to the fact that there were quite a number of terrorism attacks in California, France and other parts of the world.
