President Trump has been known for putting some pretty controversial things on his own Twitter account. Now, he has just released one of his most epic tweets yet.
President Trump posted a photo on his account that showed himself looking off into the distance while being surrounded by a cloud of smoke. The caption across the image is what now has everyone talking.
The words "Sanctions are coming. November 5" point to a meme from "Game of Thrones" that has gone viral in recent years. President Trump used the pop culture reference to make a statement about sanctions that are said to be forthcoming for Iran.
"'Sanctions are coming, November 5,' the president warned in a tweet Friday. The words were emblazoned on top of a poster-like picture of himself. The slogan echoed that of a common phrase in the hit HBO show about warring clans, even using font similar to that used by the drama," reported Politico.
The Trump administration reportedly intends to enact sanctions on Iran that were rescinded during the 2015 nuclear deal. This is a huge move for the President.
"The Trump administration’s overall approach to Iran has also upset European allies, some of which helped negotiate the nuclear deal. European leaders say they are trying to come up with a special financial vehicle that will allow Iran to keep doing business with other countries without any of those countries running afoul of U.S. sanctions," reported Politico.
HBO has reportedly fired back at the President for using the reference in his post. The organization has just commented on the image.
"We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes," an HBO spokeswoman told The Hill.
