The activists, who were from a nongovernmental organization called Greenpeace, hung a banner that featured an image of Earth and the words “defend” and “resist.”

“This is what peaceful, nonviolent creative resistance looks like,” Greenpeace tweeted.

In a statement released earlier on Friday, Greenpeace said “activists with Greenpeace USA are at Trump International Hotel in downtown Chicago, preparing to send a message that the Trump administration can’t ignore.”

On Saturday morning, Greenpeace also targeted the president in Hamburg, Germany, where he is attending the G-20 summit. Activists from the group scaled a bridge and unfurled a banner that read “G-20: End Coal.”
