Fact Check: Greenpeace Did NOT Place Banner On Trump Tower In Las Vegas On July 28, 2022 Fake Banner

Did Greenpeace put a banner on Trump Tower in Las Vegas on July 28, 2022? No, that's not true: This is a doctored image. 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 claim appeared in a tweet on July 28, 2022, with the caption "Trump Tower, Las Vegas right now" (archived here). The banner reads:

TRUMP HAS A LITTLE MUSHROOM DICK

This is what the post looked like on Twitter at the time of writing:

Greenpeace told Lead Stories by phone on August 1, 2022, that they did not place any banner over Trump Tower in Las Vegas.

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.
