A Greenpeace representative told Lead Stories that they did not place this banner on Trump Tower in Las Vegas. Lead Stories has debunked another image by this Twitter user in the past.

The person making the claim has posted similar tweets in the past under different Twitter handles, according to debunks by various fact checkers including Lead Stories. Here is a Lead Stories fact check about a different fake banner.

We have emailed the Trump organization about this claim and will update this story if we receive a response.
