The tree was created in a matter of hours after the New York Times published a story on Donald Trump’s new condo on the Upper East Side.
The newspaper said that the structure was built on the site of the former Trump Hotel.
The story was based on a series of photos that appeared on the front page of the Times.

Trump’s tower has also been the subject of controversy for the last year, as a number of stories about his business empire have emerged.
A series of lawsuits filed by New Yorkers against Trump have led to a series a court ruling that could ultimately decide the fate of the building.
