- The US will reimpose all sanctions on Iran on November 5 as part of its withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
- Donald Trump welcomed it with a bizarre knock-off „Game of Thrones“ poster that says: „Sanctions are Coming.“
President Donald Trump heralded new sanctions the US is imposing on Iran with a knock-off poster parodying HBO’s „Game of Thrones.“
It shows a photo of Trump with the words „Sanctions are Coming, November 5,“ written in the font used in the show.

It plays on „Winter is coming,“ a warning repeated in and popularized by the TV series.
The White House will reimpose all the US sanctions on Iran that had been removed under the Iran nuclear deal, which was signed in 2015.
They take effect on November 5, and will cover Iran’s shipping, financial, and energy sectors.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo outlined 12 demands that Iran must meet if it wants the sanctions lifted, which include ending military engagement in Syria, and completely halting its nuclear and ballistic missile development.
Trump withdrew the US from the Iran nuclear deal deal — also known as the Joint Comprehension Plan of Action (JCPOA) — in May, calling it „defective at its core.“
