HBO Is Not Impressed With Donald Trump's Game of Thrones Tweet

The White House's official Twitter account retweeted Trump's meme - and noted, "President @realDonaldTrump is reimposing all sanctions lifted under the unacceptable Iran deal". Not only the quote, but also the same font of Games of Thrones has been used in this new poster featuring Trump.

In a statement provided to INSIDER, a representative for HBO said the network was "not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes".

On Twitter, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on "Game of Thrones" was quick to shut Trump down. The Trumpadministration also announced Friday that it was exempting eight countries from the November 5 deadline for nations to cease importing Iranian goods or face financial penalties. But they don't use the phrase in quite the same manner as Trump did. Trump announced the words "Sanctions Are Coming".

This led to cheeky response from HBO who asked: "How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?".

The cast of Game of Thrones have never been afraid to speak their minds, whether in interviews or on social media - even when they're speaking out against the president. They became Josh Whitehouse - 28-year-old British actor and star of the TV series "Poldark" (2015). The Sansa Stark of "Game of Thrones" and the fiancee of Joe Jonas said, "Ew". President Trump's case is; however, quite different.

Game of Thrones season 8 is already going to be one of, if not the biggest entertainment event of all time - but it could have been so much bigger.

What do you think of the latest Game of Thrones prequel casting news and who do you think Whitehouse will play?

To understand just how huge this battle scene will be, Peter Dinklage (who plays Tyrion Lannister) described it when compared to the famous episode "The Battle of the Bastards", which involved Jon Snow leading a fight against Ramsey Bolton for control of the North.
