Here’s What J.K. Rowling Had to Say About Banning Trump From the UK

A Right to Be Bigoted

The world is torn over Donald Trump.

His supporters are fervent, dedicated, and angry. The silent majority has never been louder than they are at his rallies or while vindicating his hate speech on their social media. Trump is a powerful spark they believe who will reignite America’s greatness, though they ignore just what kind of America Trump would surely create.

His opposition is equally vocal, both fearful and flabbergasted that the business mogul has come so far on a platform of bigotry and vitriol that promises (emptily) to defend America, not against enemies foreign and domestic but rather against immigrants, progress, and tolerance that represent the end of a bygone way of life so many white middle-class Americans still hold dear.

Plenty of politicians, activists, and celebrities have weighed in with their opinions on Donald Trump and his campaign, and now Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has joined in with her two cents. Her opinion, however, is very different than what we’ve heard so far or what you might expect based on feelings she’s previously expressed.

So does she support him? This will really get you thinking.
