HBO has long used "Winter is coming" - the slogan of the fictional House Stark of Westeros - to promote 'Game of Thrones, ' a show based on the books by George R.R. Martin whose final season is due to air in April.
Money for the barrier along the USA southern border has been a source of disagreement amid the ongoing partial government shutdown, which began on December 22. On Wednesday, Trump placed the same poster right in the middle of the cabinet meeting table.
Previously, A Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin said Trump reminds him of the tale's immature and sadistic teen villain Joffrey Baratheon.
It is unclear whether Trump is a fan of the show.

Alan Stern , the lead investigator for the mission, said, "It's two completely different objects that are now joined together". Then the balls would have been gently drawn together by their mutual gravitational attraction, he said.

Trump is now locked in a fight with congressional Democrats over funding for the border wall that he wants to build. At least three volleys of gas were launched onto the Mexican side of the border near Tijuana's beach early Tuesday.
Neither HBO nor Trump has yet to publicly comment on the poster. "We built those walls, those physical barriers, and illegal immigration dropped exponentially", he said. Because if you're trying to convince people that walls do in fact work, you probably shouldn't throw to a show in which a wall very famously doesn't.
This comes as a partial United States government shutdown is crawling into its third week, as Congress failed to pass a proposed spending bill that had included the $5 billion that Donald Trump had requested for the construction of a wall on the country's southern border - one of his most controversial and widely-debated campaign promises. According to a 2017 report by the DHS's Office of Inspector General, "The Department, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are facing significant challenges in identifying, recruiting, hiring, and fielding the number of law enforcement officers mandated in the Executive Orders".
Like the Night's Watch struggling to find distinguished soldiers to man the wall, the USA agency tasked with border security is struggling to attract qualified applicants.
The poster's goal remains unclear.
