The author’s criticism came in response to a tweet Trump shared on Sunday stating that “full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther [sic] Border.”

“Jesus, man,” King said in response to the tweet. “You act like the Red Chinese army was invading.”

“They're just a bunch of scared and hungry people,” the author continued.

“People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!” Trump tweeted.

According to The Associated Press, the group of migrants, many of whom are fleeing violence in their home countries in Central America, has grown to include more than 5,000 people.

This is not the first time the horror novelist has taken shots at the Trump administration.

Last year, King said Trump was “unfit” to serve as president and called for him to be removed from office.

He also once tweeted that he would block the president from seeing his movies to get back at him for blocking him on Twitter and has called Vice President Pence "creepy.”
