After President Trump used Game of Thrones likeness and font in a tweet claiming victory over the released Mueller report, HBO has put out a statement condemning the president’s actions.

“Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes,” HBO said in a released statement of the tweet President Trump has pinned to the top of his Twitter feed.
This isn’t the first time the president has used the Game of Thrones likeness in a social media post. Last November Trump posted a Game of Thrones inspired tweet announcing “Sanctions Are Coming” to Iran.
At the time HBO responded, “We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”
