HBO Slams Donald Trump For His ‘Game Of Thrones’-Themed Tweet

HBO is not happy with Donald Trump.

The cable network slammed the U.S. president for using “Game of Thrones” imagery and language to promote the upcoming sanctions against Iran.

Earlier Friday, Trump’s official Twitter account shared a photo of the POTUS with a text overlay reading, “Sanctions are coming,” matching the iconic style of the HBO hit series. The “Game of Thrones” slogan reads “Winter is coming.”
