HBO has expressed its displeasure over US President Donald Trump's usage of the slogan for its hit show "Game of Thrones". I doubt HBO will sway him away from using Game of Thrones catch phrases, either, but no one can sustain an objection you don't make, so on and on it goes.

"Game Of Thrones" star Sophie Turner - who hasn't hesitated to give Trump flak in the past - offered a succinct rebuke of the tweet. Trump has said that he will reinstate them on Monday, hours before the midterm elections.

"The goal of the United States in all this was to regain the domination it had in the era of the tyranny, but it could not", the Leader added, referring to the period prior to the Islamic Revolution when the Shah of Iran was the top U.S. ally in the region.

And in a tweet, HBO said, "How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?". The Sansa Stark of "Game of Thrones" and the fiancee of Joe Jonas said, "Ew". "She tweeted 'Not Today".

People magazine also reached out to the White House for a comment but failed to get a response.

It appeared similar to deals that authorities struck with most other detainees in exchange for their freedom. The government has not offered any public explanation for his arrest or the conditions of his release.

Cast members weren't having it either. Although they have often carried a much lighter context than the president 's obnoxious remarks.

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin weighed in on the scandal and tweeted a message to Trump as well.

Many Twitter users suspected Trump didn't really understand that the bleak reality of the show isn't something the USA should aspire to.
