The world-renowned horror novelist, Stephen King, recently let his feelings on Donald Trump well and truly known in a scathing string of tweets.

Now, King is usually known for something other than his politics.

The world-renowned author has published sixty-one thriller and horror novels - many of which have been adapted into huge blockbusters - and he has sold more than 350 million copies worldwide.

Born in Portland, Maine, the seventy-two-year-old novelist had a pretty normal upbringing...

And he first found inspiration for writing horror after reading a collection of short stories by H.P. Lovecraft. King stated that he "knew that he'd found home when he read that book."

His first professional story came in 1967...

King then went on to write timeless classics such as Carrie (1973), Salem's Lot (1975), The Shining (1977), Pet Sematary (1983), IT (1986), and The Shawshank Redemption (1994).

His home state of Maine has had a huge influence on his work.

Many of his stories take place in fictional Maine towns, such as Derry and Castle Rock. King has stated that Derry, the setting for IT, is loosely based on Banger, where he currently resides with his wife Tabitha (and their dog, The Thing of Evil Molly, of course.)

Many of his novels were recreated on the big screen...

And it's safe to say that IT (2017 & 2019) was certainly the most successful adaptation.

King is now a very admired man...

And his decades of work have inspired so many writers and film producers, including the Duffer Brothers who have credited King for their inspiration behind the creation of Stranger Things.

He has also been the recipient of a number of accolades.

He has received World Fantasy Awards, British Fantasy Society Awards, Bram Stoker Awards, an O. Henry Award, the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement, the Canadian Booksellers Association Lifetime Achievement Award and the Grand Master Award for the Mystery Writers of America. He was also awarded the National Medal of  Medal of Arts from the United States National Endowment for the Arts for his contributions to literature in 2015 by President Obama himself.

Stephen King is a man who knows what he's doing.

But the author is no stranger to landing himself in hot water.

In recent years, he has made his opinions of President Trump very well known on social media, and despite many agreeing with him, there are a lot of people who don't always appreciate his views.

King is known for his Twitter rants about politics...

And he has become very well known for his insults, too.

King has long called for Trump's impeachment...

Before he was actually impeached.

For the entirety of his presidency, King has made it clear that he'd love nothing more than to see Trump out of the White House...

So, of course, he is bound to be one happy man this weekend.

As you will all know, Trump lost this year's election to Democratic rival, Joe Biden...

And the internet has been awash with jubilant Democrats and Trump-haters ever since.

However, there has been no word from the alpha Trump-basher, Stephen King.

The author had logged off throughout the election week, with him telling his followers: "I'm off Twitter until after the election. #VoteBlueToEndTheNightmare."

Well, King made his grand social media return...

With the simple words: "One of the best days of my life."

Evidently, the author was overjoyed with the news of Trump's defeat...

And he continued to tweet about it for the rest of the day.

But, Stephen King being Stephen King...

It didn't take long for him to turn the attack onto Trump.

Firstly, he tweeted this.

In an ironic reference to Trump's show, The Apprentice, he wrote: "America to Trump: YOU'RE FIRED."

He then followed it with this:

"In a contest pitting science vs. superstition, science won. That it was even close in our so-called age of enlightenment is worrying."

Trump is in full-fledged sulk mode right now so, of course, he hasn't responded to the author's tweets.
