Outspoken US presidential candidate Donald Trump has been known to overstep the mark, however he crossed the line when he proposed a temporary ban on all Muslims from traveling to the United States in response to the shooting in San Bernardino, California on December 2.
Outraged at his comments, people naturally took to Twitter to vent and quickly started comparing him to Harry Potter's arch-nemesis Voldemort.

@Loolabette Somehow, Voldemort managed to be less cartoonishly evil than Trump despite being a cartoon evil guy.

My theory is that Trump is Voldemort & if the media stops saying his name, Harry Potter will come destroy him. America will be great again.

The only way to stop Donald Trump is to destroy his Horcruxes. The wig is definitely one. If you need me I'll be finding the other six.

Harry Potter creator J.K Rowling also got in on the Twitter conversation, however she disagreed that he was like Voldemort, declaring rather that he is worse.
How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad. https://t.co/hFO0XmOpPH

Voldemort aside, a number of high-profile names have spoken out against Trumps inflammatory comments, with Hillary Clinton also taking to Twitter to share her opinion on his speech.
"This is reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive. @RealDonaldTrump, you don’t get it. This makes us less safe".

TV personality Jerry Springer also shared his thoughts tweeting: "Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering America… an insult to all those who fought and died for the idea America. Shame on him."
