Trump's announcement is the final blow to former President Barack Obama's Iran deal that lifted sanctions on the middle eastern country in exchange for an end to their nuclear program.

Making things more interesting, President Trump tweeted out a photo about the sanctions using a famous "Game of Thrones" theme.

"We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes", said HBO in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

HBO also responded to the situation on Twitter.

The photo was widely viewed as a direct response to the United States president's own Westeros-inspired tweet that read, "Sanctions are coming November 5".

But just wait till next season's climactic episode, say the show's cast and crew.

It's what we're working towards in a ideal world.

Deadline said Goldman will serve as showrunner and co-executive produce with Martin, Vince Gerardis and Daniel Zelman. The Trump administration has already issued one round of sanctions against Iranian core industries; the next round is expected to target the country's energy sector, including oil and gas exports. But no official name has been decided upon - or if it has, it hasn't been made public. Iran can spend the money but only on a narrow range of humanitarian items. Trump is now imposing severe sanctions on Iran despite the latter's compliance. They were hoping for Iran to be disconnected from the main global financial messaging network known as SWIFT.

Meanwhile, others photoshopped the image of Robert Mueller, the former FBI chief heading up the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. Hopefully, there will be enough characters alive by the end of the final season to deal with the coming apocalypse promised by the White Walkers.

All of this drama is said to set us up for the battle of all battles in a confrontation with the Army of the Dead.
