Trump has a giant poster printed out of the “Sanctions are coming” meme sitting on the table while he talks to the press.

It remains unclear why the poster was displayed so prominently at the Cabinet meeting, especially since Trump mentioned Iran only briefly. But many people were left wondering the president’s continuing push for the U.S.-Mexico border wall was inspired by the show’s Wall. (If so, clearly he’s not had a chance to watch the Season 7 finale yet.)
No, we don't know why yet

Not sure what's crazier: That Trump is using a stupid Game of Thrones reference to threaten sanctions, or that he's obviously had that poster since at LEAST October (photo via AP) pic.twitter.com/NZaRoHw0NQ

Show Trump a picture of the great ice wall in Game of Thrones and tell him this is his completed border wall with Mexico. Satisfied, he will move on to his next idiotic fantasy.

So Trump says "Walls work" in front of a Game of Thrones- inspired poster that represents himself.
