HBO And 'Game Of Thrones' Stars Are Not Happy With Trump's Meme

Thank The Seven Gods We Finally Have New Deets On Game Of Thrones S8

Game of Thrones' Army of the Dead battle will be even bigger than we thought

The U.S. sanctions on Iran had been lifted under a 2015 worldwide nuclear pact, but they are being reimposed on Monday. The golden font was debuted in posters for the show's second season and "Winter Is Coming" is the season's debut tagline.

Several actors in the series also responded, with Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, tweeting "Not today" and Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, writing "Ew".

Today, the U.S. president took to his unhinged Twitter account to post an image (which you can go find for yourself) warning people that "sanctions are coming", and the image made use of Game of Thrones-esque imagery and fonts.

Schaffer, the HBO spokesman, said that apart from Trump using the phrase, the company prefers that others don't use it to "promote their own agendas". Trump announced the words "Sanctions Are Coming". HBO's Games of Thrones includes a mention of Dothraki on the show.

Two members of the "Thrones" cast gave personal reactions of distaste.

Could World War 3 break out between Iran and the USA?
South Korea has been granted a waiver from United States sanctions on Iranian oil, a government official said on Monday. The other parties to the deal - Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation - say they will not leave.


The White House press office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday evening. Marco Rubio did use it when he announced that he was running for president in 2015. President Trump's case is; however, quite different.

So, the ball got rolling on a final season that would be "six hours long" and consist of a giant Game of Thrones movie trilogy.

The Long Night refers to a time around 8,000 years before the current events of the show, during what's known in Game of Thrones lore as the Age of Heroes.

After the US' withdrawal from the deal, Trump signed fresh sanctions against Iran and warned countries against any cooperation with Tehran on its controversial nuclear weapons programme.

In a statement issued Friday night, Trump said, "Our objective is to force the regime into a clear choice: either abandon its destructive behaviour or continue down the path toward economic disaster".
