There's never a quiet moment in the White House, and today proves no different. 

US President Donald Trump referenced HBO fantasy hit Game of Thrones to back up his border wall plans, and BOY did it fail.

He essentially brought his parody poster, which was an image of himself (of course) with the phrase 'sanctions are coming' scrawled across it in classic GOT style. 

The sanctions are in reference to his notorious border wall proposal, which he wants to block off access from Mexico and various South American countries to the States. 

The wall is set to cost over $25 BILLION if it's given the green light, and will also stop hundreds of people from living in Native American tribes from living there, as well as having disastrous consequences for wildlife.

SPOILER: We're pretty sure he hasn't watched the latest series of GOT, because the famous wall which blocks the North from the South is destroyed by the Night King in the finale of season seven.

Basically, the wall didn't work. Which makes Trump's use of GOT references even dumber…if that was even possible.

Cabinet employees tweeted that they had no idea why the poster was brought to the meeting.

Trump is most likely the first President to use memes in serious occasions such as discussions regarding immigration and North Korea.

HBO most likely aren't suing the President, but they made their distaste very clear:

Honestly, we have no words.

Winter better be coming for Trump, we don't know what other season could handle his ridiculousness.

Donald Trump has taken to Twitter (surprise surprise) to renew his vehemence for a border wall. 

Citing the Eqyptian mosque attack, which killed over 200 people in the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, Trump used the attack to promote the construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico, and to promote the travel ban.

Trump said he would speak with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi later that day.

'Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life;' he said. 

'We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will.'

'Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt.'

The attack was one of the deadliest in Egyptian history. So far, no signal organisation has claimed responsibility for the attack. 

Trump has previously used similar attacks to promote his proposals.

After the attack in London's Parsons Green, the POTUS said:

'The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific – but stupidly, that would not be politically correct.'

The folk behind Cards Against Humanity are so much more than a foul-mouthed, albeit hilarious, party game creators. 

Never one to shy away form its political views, the company often uses publicity stunts to highlight a range of societal issues including consumer culture and pink-tax – but this latest effort might just be our favourite yet.

According to the official website, CAH have purchased a plot of vacant land right on the US-Mexico border, in an attempt to spoil Donald Trump's party and prevent him from completing the controversial wall designed to separate the two countries.

“We’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specialising in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built,” the statement reads.

For the project (which is now sold-out), customers were asked to donate $15 in return for “six America-saving surprises,” including a map of the land, a certificate of the company's promise to fight the wall and some new cards.

As expected, the anti-Trump Twitter population has thrown its full support behind the cause.

Donald Trump is still pushing to complete one of his most infamous campaign claims. 

The POTUS insisted during a press conference last night, that he will be building a wall between Mexico and the US, and that Mexico will pay for it.

'We need the wall. It's imperative,' said Trump.

'We may fund it through the United States but ultimately Mexico will pay for the wall.'

As a presidential candidate on the campaign, Donald Trump stated that he would be responsible for creating a physical barrier between Mexico and the US.

The border barricade would prevent drug trafficking and illegal immigration, according to the POTUS, and would be financed by Mexico, he claimed at the time.

At the press conference, he did not give specific details on how he would force Mexico to pay for the structure.

The Mexican government has said on numerous occasions that they will not be financing or participating in the project.
