"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 USA ally in the region.

Don't mess with the warriors of HBO's hit Game of Thrones, even if you're the president. It also appears to mimic one of the show's most recognisable phrases: "Winter is Coming".

The statement comes in a response to an image posted earlier on the President's Twitter, which depicts Trump standing with the words "Sanctions are Coming".

The decision will also affect Iranian shipping and financial transactions.

Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, which has never exactly been pro-Trump, replied to the tweet with "Joffrey grew up", recalling the Emmy-winning series' long-loathed, tyrannical boy king.

As much as people enjoyed the moment, some criticised Mr Trump for using the picture to seemingly make light of a serious issue which could affect thousands.

The patients were being transported to "major trauma centres" in London with the help of the air ambulance, a statement added. A medical helicopter and 20 ambulances were deployed to the scene in what is being described as "significant" incident.

President Donald Trump is touting his reimposition of all USA sanctions on Iran in a manner best described as "Lame of Thrones".

Remember season six's supremely brutal Battle of the Bastards sequence, which at the time was considered the biggest single shoot in HBO history or whatever, taking 25 days to film?

They said sanctions will remain until Iran meets demands that include ending support for terrorism, ending military engagement in Syria and completely halting its nuclear and ballistic missile development.

Mr Pompeo defended the oil waivers and noted that since May, when the United States began to press countries to stop buying Iranian oil, Iran's exports had dropped by more than one million barrels per day.

The punitive measures were announced Friday but take effect Monday.
