Trump's uses 'Game of Thrones' famous line to hint at Mexico border

Trump's tweeted photo "The Wall is Coming"

US President Donald Trump used on Saturday 'Game of Thrones' - a hit TV show that features a massive ice wall – line to push for his controversial barrier on the Mexican border.

"THE WALL IS COMING," Trump wrote in a post on Instagram that featured the font from the show's title alongside his picture with a border barrier at the bottom.

"Winter is coming" is an iconic phrase from the show that has been fodder for a slew of memes, which Trump previously referenced in a tweet about impending sanctions on Iran.

Trump's wall - a dispute over funding for which has led to a protracted shutdown of the US government - is aimed at keeping out Central American migrants fleeing poverty and rampant violence in their home countries.
