Who's worse, Voldemort or Donald Trump?

It's a question we ask ourselves on a daily basis thanks to the range of outrageous, offensive and downright evil comments the potential future President of the US *gulp* has said about women, immigrants, taxes and Hillary Clinton, to name but a few.

However, it looks like we're not the only ones to compare 'those who shall not be named' in the same breath.

At last night's film festival Empire Live, Daniel Radcliffe opened up about J.K Rowling's comparison of Voldemort to the entrepreneur.

He told Sky News: 'I sort of think Donald Trump might not be as ideologically pure as Voldemort.'

'My thing on Trump is that he feels like more of an opportunist, like I don't know how much of this stuff he's saying he actually, really, really believes,' he added.

Basically, what Dan is saying is that at least with Voldy you know he means what he says, but Trump doesn't even believe the lies he spews.

However, despite their difference, the Harry Potter said the comparison between the pair 'is certainly not without its merits.'

On second thoughts, maybe Voldemort didn't really die at the end of The Deathly Hallows.

Maybe Trump is another one of the Dark Lord's horcruxes?

Right, whatever you do, don't panic*.
