J K Rowling trolls Trump after boast about expert writing skills

JK Rowling has made it no secret that she is not a fan of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Folks on Twitter, including the official account for Merriam-Webster dictionary, lampooned Trump for writing a message celebrating his writing skills that included a mistake.
