(Newser) – JK Rowling has been among Donald Trump's most vocal critics on social media, but his right-hand man hasn't escaped her notice. On Sunday, Rowling retweeted a December 2015 tweet in which Mike Pence said "calls to ban Muslims from entering the US are offensive and unconstitutional," per Mashable. Rowling's commentary on Pence's tweet was a single biblical quote: "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?" The tweet has been liked more than 55,000 times and retweeted 25,000 times as of this writing. (Read more JK Rowling stories.)
