J.K. Rowling has been laughing at President Donald Trump on Twitter. He says in his tweet: "I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!".

Rowling seemed to enjoy the President's take on his authorial prowess, tweeting: 'hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha *draws breath* hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha'.

An hour later, Trump deleted the tweet, and tweet out the same message with the correct word.

Twitter personalities were quick to point out the irony in the post, as Trump - in a tweet boasting about his writing ability - misused the word "pour", as he presumably meant to use "pore over" instead.

Rowling wasn't the only one to poke fun at Mr Trump.

Amid his Tuesday early evening tweetstorm, the president also attacked the Washington Post for their use of anonymous sources within the White House and close to Trump in their reporting.

Since Trump took office, Merriam-Webster has repeated ridiculed the president and his team over their spelling and grammar blunders, among other things. It provided definitions for "pore over" and "pour over" and went one step further, defining "comb over" - a not-so-subtle reference to the president's signature hairstyle.

However, this was not the first time the Harry Potter author had mocked Trump.

Trump biographer Tim O'Brien revealed on Tuesday that the President had not actually written any of the books released under his name.

Rowling also pointed out that Trump is not really a best-selling writer, seeing that all of his books are ghost-written.
