In his tweet, Trump likened himself to the character Jon Snow and cryptically alluded to new sanctions against Iran, which the administration officially announced earlier on Friday.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "Sanctions are Coming" using the font from the popular HBO show, whose tag line is 'Winter is Coming'.

US President Donald Trump recently made a reference to hit TV series Game of Thrones in one of his tweets.

The image that Trump tweeted featured the date of November 5.

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".

Only a few days ago, the makers of the prequel fantasy series "Game of thrones" called the name of the first actress, as already now it became known about another hero.

Some cast members couldn't help but react to the social media post.
