It seems like U.S President Donald Trump‘s social media team is a fan of HBO’s world famous Game of Thrones series. Or being impressed by its popularity they decided to opt for a poster based on GoT’s title style. Stealing the title phrase “Winter is Coming”, making slogan for POTUS campaign “Sanctions are Coming”.

The sanctions are being imposed by U.S president against Iran back in effect which were suspended in May as, Trump pulled out of the deal made by the Obama administration. November 5th date was added below the tag line to indicate the sanctions application date.

HBO was not pleased at all with this publicity stunt, as the company tweeted from its official Twitter account: “How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?”

GoT followers know The Dothraki are a powerful violent tribe in Game of Thrones!

The POTUS tweet received a massive backlash on the social media. Many people were quick to respond to his tweet, including Game of Thrones stars.

Sophie Turner replying to his tweet only wrote “EW”, showing her disgust for it.
