Which of the great houses of Westeros would Donald Trump belong to?

In the midst of crisscrossing the country stumping for Republican candidates, Donald Trump dropped a Photoshopped picture of himself on a "Game of Thrones" promotional poster on Twitter. The picture uses the motto of House Stark, "Winter is coming," to warn of impending sanctions to be announced Nov. 5. The tweet has raised many questions: Sanctions on what? Why? For what purpose? Because of the elections? Really? Most important, though, is which house the president would belong to—the gold-loving Lannisters or the warriors Starks? What do you think?

Trump used the motto of House Stark in his tweet. So we can guess he thinks he'd be in House Stark!

However, the most important *SPOILER ALERT* remaining member of House Stark took to Twitter to voice her displeasure with the president's affiliation with her house. Maisie Williams, Arya Stark herself, quoted the words of her mentor Syrio Forel in her takedown of the president.

Trump does have a well-documented love of all things gold. Plus, the legitimacy of his claim to his seat of power has been disputed since he took office, so perhaps he fits best within the walls of House Lannister!

Some on Twitter speculated that Trump chose the House Stark motto because of his own historical issues with paying off debts.

HBO, on the other hand, seems to want Trump to exclude it from this narrative.
