President TrumpDonald TrumpFormer New York state Senate candidate charged in riot Trump called acting attorney general almost daily to push election voter fraud claim: report GOP senator clashes with radio caller who wants identity of cop who shot Babbitt MORE has blocked Stephen King on Twitter, the bestselling author said on Tuesday.

King has been highly critical of the president in the past, and often takes to Twitter to rail against Trump and other administration officials.

Last month, the author of "It," "The Shining" and "Carrie" said Trump having control of the U.S. nuclear arsenal is "worse than any horror story I ever wrote."

The move to cut King off from reading his tweets comes a day after a veterans' group said that it had also been blocked by the president.


β€œThe Commander in Chief can block @VoteVets, the voice of 500k military veterans and families, but we will NOT be silenced,” tweeted, along with a screenshot of the message that Trump had blocked the account. 

That group has also criticized Trump's policies, including his budget plan and his so-called travel ban executive order, barring individuals from certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.

While King may not be able to monitor the president's Twitter feed directly, he's unlikely to be cut off completely. Author J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame offered to send Trump's tweets to King directly.
