J.K. Rowling took a swing at Donald Trump Monday, calling him a “fascist” and saying “God help America.”

The 50-year-old author attacked the presumptive Republican nominee in a statement on her website titled “On Monsters, Villains and the EU Referendum.”

“Look towards the Republican Party in America and shudder,” she wrote. “‘Make America Great Again!’ cries a man who is fascist in all but name. His stubby fingers are currently within horrifyingly close reach of America’s nuclear codes.” (RELATED: J.K. Rowling: ‘Donald Trump Has My Full Support Because…’)

“He achieved this pre-eminence by proposing crude, unworkable solutions to complex threats,” she added.

“‘Terrorism?’ ‘Ban all Muslims!’ ‘Immigration?’ ‘Build a wall!’ He has the temperament of an unstable nightclub bouncer, jeers at violence when it breaks out at his rallies and wears his disdain for women and minorities with pride.”  (RELATED: J.K.

“God help America,” she continued. “God help us all.”
